“Great Sunset (when there is one)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Beautiful place when it's not cloudy. Happy hour 1 hour before and 1 hour after sunset. Beers on tap were Tiger and Heineken, and only the Tiger was 2:1 during happy hour.

“Lovely ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Confused ordering system for drinks meant when the bar was busy (at sunset!) we had to wait far too long for our drinks while only 2 people made drinks but 4 took orders and cleared (some) glasses.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

We had a front seat of the sunset, great views and great service. Happy hour was also great value. Wine was cold and refreshing and service with a smile.

“Could have been fantastic....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

It's a great little bar, at the end of he causeway, uninterrupted sunset views, however!
Maybe I was just unlucky, but the place was overrun with small kids, running around, screaming. Either side of me on the sofas, the adults were playing electronic games/ watching videos on their phones, with the sound up! Smoking was not allowed on the sofa's but a few times this happened and the bar staff had to tell them to move, so on the basis that you go there to have a nice drink, to watch the wildlife and the sunset, all of the above somewhat ruined it for me.
The staff were lovely though, dried banana chips were provided with the drinks, happy hour meant 2 for 1 wine or beer, just could be much much better
