“Great food, Western price”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

This place makes hearty meals of Western fares. Even the Indonesian satay was of the Western variety. Of course, it comes with a Western price too. A good meal sets you back $10-20. Popular with expats and tourists. Definitely the place to go to if you have enough local food.

“Diving trip to East Timore”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

During our twelve day stay in East Timore we had many great meals in the Castaway Bar. The meals were of a high standard, plentiful and very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Good food and views”
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”
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.
