“food and drinks”

good selection of western style food that had generous servings and good quality food. Views of the ocean across the road. Salads and ice eaten here with no ill effects.

“Good food and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Good food and views out over the ocean looking towards Atauro Island. Lively at night with live bands on some nights and music and sporting events on big TVs on others. Food is good too and a good place to hang out and meet locals and expats.

“Go for the atmosphere, not the food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The service was slow and the food when it arrived was now really hot. I was sick for 3 days afterwards, not sure if it was here that was the culprit, but the timing was right.

“Surprisingly extensive menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were staying in the lodgings downstairs in the dive centre, so had breakfast here every day and dinner on most nights. Each day there were new specials in both fresh juice drinks, cocktails and menu items, some better than others. I saw a recipe book being used down in the kitchen a couple of times. The food was acceptable, although not outstanding. The price was very reasonable. While we were there, they were baking their own bread and so the toast for breakfast was excellent. Being situated overlooking the beach and bay, it was a nice place to have breakfast in particular and watch the world go by. Saw turtles feeding on the reef on a couple of days.
