We went there to have dinner and although the place was almost filled with people , it was completely quiet and calm. The food was ok,The pina colada was nice , and the atmosphere was great. The only light source was the candle.

I recommend the coconut chicken burger but most of the food is good. Great Wifi. Full bar. Book swap. Indoor and outdoor seating. Lovely breeze and wonderful views.
