“Not the best, but alright.”

This place was recommend to us as a good place to eat.
We had dinner here and a few drinks. Was good, but I felt it was overpriced for what you got.
It has a great view out to the lagoon.
Very friendly staff.

“Great location and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

Excellent location eating on the beach. Ask for a table at front of beach so you can watch the sunset. Food was very good. Service is certainly island time. But your on holiday so its all good. Cocktails were a bit weak, couldnt really taste any booze im them. Aside from that, would recommend.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

The food here, especially the slow cooked pork belly was very good. The restaurant could use some updating and the staff wasn't quite as efficient or friendly as other places, but overall, a good experience. Their pickup/drop off service was appreciated.

“Handy to where we were stayng”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

We chose to dine at the Vaima restaurant.

We found that the food and service was really good. We also had take away pizza and it was great to eat at home on the beach.

The only thing that I can say that was negative was the owner who was always at the till, he was not friendly, a little arrogant. Our group spent a lot of money there. We did not expect much more than that but a little smile and small talk goes a long way. Would think twice about going back.
