We ordered fish and prawns in the morning, the owner arranged thereafter while we sat 10 feet from the water, listened to the waves and ate fresh catch of the day. The owner was a charming man, the food was great, the beer cold, price very reasonable, the experience unique - catch it before it disappears.

Lovely owner who's v friendly and serves great fish and beers right on the beach. His place was destroyed in the tsunami and rebuilt on a smaller scale. Please support this great local restaurant, some of the best seafood we've had anywhere in the world. He works alone so give him time but its worth the wait!

Lovely little seafood shack on the beach. Great garlic prawns. Good value and highly recommended. There are sunbeds and some shade and it's a great spot to while away a few hours, refreshing yourself now and then with a cold Lion beer and then enjoying their simple, but well cooked and delicious, food.
