Reviewed May 13, 2013

They have a really good steak sandwich that has onion jam on it. It was superb. They also had very good fishburgers and by far the best banana smoothies on the island. The cafe is closed on Fridays & Saturdays. I failed to notice this and diden't get my banana smoothie fix on my last day.

“Lunch in Paradise”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

A lunch spot located in paradise - very good food and friendly, attentive service. You can almost touch the lagoon between the coconut palms and watch the waves break over the reef as you dine in pleasant casual and relaxed surroundings.

“great service, great food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

all the essentials for a lovely cafe - the owners have a good thing going on. the cafe is busy from opening hour of 9am and closes at 2.30pm. the cafe is opposite the bus stop at 6pm on the island clock - closed Friday and Saturday. You can order the food to go to heat up later for dinner - the Thai options very popular for that.
