Enjoyed eating outside. We liked the pizza and that we never had to wait for a table despite there being a good sized crowd.

Sure, it's a little way away from the town centre (perfect if you're staying at Pullmans Sea Temple though) but it's such a good restaurant!

The food is sublime, with a great daily specials selection. The service is fantastic and the atmosphere is really laid back and totally unpretentious despite serving a la carte, top quality food.

We returned for a second night in a row, and my best advice would be to get the bread and butter pudding for dessert... Sweet jesus. It's amazing. Covered in Creme Anglais and a dollop of rum ice cream. Perfect!

We had the worst service here. The food was quite good, except for a tasteless gnocci. The waiting staff have no idea, they need leadership badly. We were not sure who was serving us, out of 4 who attended our table at different times. The drink orders were so slow coming, I had finished my meal before my glass of red arrived. They brought the wrong drinks twice. It was just an allround awful experience. With good service this restaurant would appeal, at the moment there seems to be no one in charge. The staff talked amongst themselves, did not relate to us as customers, the service was so slow. Would never ever return.

We enjoyed the meal we had at this restaurant- we turned up without a reservation at 6.30pm and managed to get the last table.- obviously a popular place to dine. Nice with the sand floor and kids like it.

The waitresses were friendly and came from many countries by their lovely accents. The atmosphere was good - not a posh place to dine but more your casual friendly eatery. Heaps of young families dining and they provided colouring pages and crayons for them, so didn't find there being so many kids a problem.

Meals were nice,although expected that the most expensive steak would be tender (hence why I decided to pay more) but when it came, it was disappointingly tough and chewy. Everything else enjoyable.

Within walking distance of many resorts- we stayed at Niramaya and was an easy 10 min wallk.
