A nice café style venue situated in the back streets above the harbour. I had the Chilli Rojo, touted as being very hot - they actually suggest you try some first, just in case. It was delicious, and quite spicey, but if you are used to hot UK curries and Thai food, you’ll be fine. Overall the menu was very... More

This is a restaurant that we have visited before the last time being 4 years ago. Once again the food was good and my wife says the margaretas are still the best she has had. However we were shocked to learn that Mike had died and Emma sold it 2 years ago, so what a shame that they are still... More
