You can dine on the balcony or inside in the rustic but stylish restaurant, have a drink at the bar or in the lounge area..

The views were great as was the service, nice young waitresses, very helpful. The food was pretty average but ok, not many choices as far as better restaurants on the island.

“Kids meals were ridiculously priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

The meals were nice but over priced for what they were but the kids meals were nearly $15 a meal and included an icecream but a kids drink was an extra $4.. so nearly $20 oer child. Really dissapointed. I have never been anywhere where a childs meal was so ridiculously priced.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

My 'Thai vegetable coconut curry' lunch, costing about $25, consisted of two spoons of spicy cabbage salad with insufficient spice to mask the taste of bitter cabbage and a bowl full of noodles with about 10 green beans and a mild Thai-flavoured curry sauce.

The coffee was bitter.

The service was good.

Sitting in the verandah, the view was marred by dirty damaged plastic covering the window although the weather was warm enough to have dispensed with faux window-coverings.

“Beautiful restaurant, great views and fantastic meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

This was a second trip back here and it certainley did not disappoint.
Staff extremely helpful and welcoming, Could not fault the service at all.
We sat in the outdoor seating overlooking the water which was just beautiful, as soon as you sit down you instantly feel relaxed.
The food was beautiful, the garlic bulb ciabatta and the pork belly is a must have.
well done guys we will definatley come back again :)
