Spent a day on the ring road around the island and enjoyed a relaxed long lunch followed by coffee. Lobster was cooked to perfection.

Reviewed January 11, 2014

Spectacular view! The dirt road to get there is a bit annoying though. Food and drinks were delicious

A very pleasant evening, the food is very good, the staff are very friendly. The setting is brilliant and is very much worth the drive.

“Spectacular setting”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

The food here is competent but didn't knock my socks off. Enjoyed the beef carpaccio - a good use of the slightly chewy Vanuatu beef, with Parmesan & oven roasted capers. Lobster good, crab needed much more chilli, less sweetening & a tough less cooking. Pouring rain made potholed unsealed road er... interesting to drive out of at night after three vanilla martinis.
