The food was very good, fresh seafood, with several local delicacies not available in other parts of the country like Tuaran noodles and some vegetable dishes. I quite liked their soft-shelled crab dish.
Service was a bit slow in that it was very difficult to get the staffs' attention, and drinks took awhile to arrive, but food was served hot, and all at once.
There's not much of a view, but the restaurant's open-air architecture and location atop a low hill ensured a constant breeze during our lunch, keeping us cool despite the 37 degree temperature.

A nice restaurant with reasonable seafood. Fresh and a wide range of offerings available. However, the quality of food was not as good as other eateries in town and the dining atmosphere is nothing to shout about.
