Reviewed March 15, 2014

We stayed at the Sarayi Hotel, so it was great to have The Rising Sun connected to it. Prices were good and it was the only place I was able to find onion rings during our trip! Staff was friendly and service was good. Great views of the ocean while eating. Overall a good experience

“Yummy Squid and Sugarcane pork!!!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

We are a young couple and are so glad to have bumped into this beautiful sit out bar and cafe in the heart of palm cove on the esplanade!!! Friendly visitors of all ages and the staff are amazing! Writing a good review while I am still sitting here at the table should probably say how good this place is and is worth a visit for sure. The chef has done a great job on the fried squid with vietnamese touch and chilled large number of prawns in cocktail sauce!! Yummo!!! Definitely recommend the white sangria to go with it.... oh and dont forget 4-6 is the cocktail hour!!! I am coming back here for sure!! Good work team- friendly and professional :)

“Good with a one off bad point”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We had the meat pizza adapted to suit our being vegetarian however when it arrived it was burnt and not particularly edible, however on mentioning it to the staff a replacement was speedily offered, we did decline and it was taken off of the bill.
Just an unfortunate incident as we had breakfast there the following day which was very good. Location, service and staff were all great.

“Food was fine, but service wasn't”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

First, I was attacked by what looked like a very small scorpion. it fell out of the ceiling and onto my shoulder. The food was good, but our waitress didn't care about us, and it was expensive.
