“Great views, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great views of the sunset. Friendly staff but very slow service. Food could be better. The acapulco pizza was allright but the South African fare was a let down. I noticed that the staff were serving food from a kitchen in the next building and hence probably resulted in the very slow service. Should do something about the mosquitoes.

“nice but can be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

the sea-side atmosphere compensate for the poor service, the food is eatable and served nicely.
if their phones were working it could have been better for the reservation arrangements.

“paradise 1km from home!”
4 of 5 stars 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 stars 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.
