This is a hidden away restaurant, but very fun! Very touristy, but the view is absolutely perfect! Lots of food to pick from and all delicious. Fun for kids as there is space they can run around and there is a VW bus and surfboards....More

You know that those are great questions. Children would love Lava Lava. Their staff will try to give the table requested but you may have to be patient. Have an extra drink. And have fun!
