We came here one day for breakfast and really enjoyed our meal and drinks. There is Huge breakfast selection and we reccomend it. They offer paid WiFi only, which we did not use, but the sign said “it really does work” ;) Prices also reasonable.

Thanks for this review. My comment was aimed at you being medical students as wearing long skirts is very normal for volunteers. Not meant to be offensive just a comment. The bikes were not rented broken I test the brakes each time they are rented....More

A nice friendly restaurant with a cultural awareness . Really enjoyed the dancing and singing the evening we went and my tropical fish dish was delightful.
