“paradise 1km from home!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Recently refurbished and sooo nice. Lovely sea breeze. Service can be a bit slow but worth the wait. The new bandas are lovely, sit with your toes in the sand right at the edge of the water.

“Ok food. Tourist menu. Tourist prices. Great ambiance.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

The food price comparison is out of balance here on top of that a poor and moody service were you have to wait long before you get served and long to get your order makes this beautifully situated restaurant a tourist trap.

The food is great, one just need to be patient as it gets prepared. small disappointment though, is some items are no longer being made, e.g. the pumpkin soup. the best i have ever had.

“Great location, sketchy service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

I went to this restaurant twice, the first time in the afternoon when it was fairly empty and the second time in the evening during peak hour. Beautiful location next to the water and they have the best Mtori (banana and beef soup) ever.

For lunch, I had the Mtori and chicken skewers, both of which were good. Watched the sun go down and enjoyed the food.

Dinner was a different story, with very inattentive servers who brought to our table completely burnt skewers of meat and a completely undercooked platter of lobster. We got the seafood platter which was very expensive, and were sad to have to wasted nearly all of it due to it being dangerously undercooked. We asked for the burnt meat to be taken back and were given a very rude response, and eventually they replaced the skewers.

Overall, the restaurant must pay more attention to service standards!
