Ate lunch here after a long shoot and trek. Lots of good options including soups, salads, fish, sandwiches, burgers, lamb dishes, and some italian dishes. Several beers on tap and nice wine selection.

If you're travelling with a tour group (big or small), there is a very high chance that you'll be having a meal here. Why? Because there's not many other eating establishments around! Generally speaking, tour groups don't go to the swankiest of restaurants to eat,...More

Our guide/driver's favorite South Coast resto is this one. It is so much nicer than Husafel Bistro. It looks like a nice eating establishment. We had a long table in a small room. Next to us were a group of Japanese tourists. They seemed to...More
