Excellent location right on the beach and always bustling with people, but this can be a problem. The food is really good but due to it being so busy they tend to neglect the service. We waited for over an hour for breakfast and when we complained we were told it is because of the toast that is taking so long. If you are prepared to wait a long time I would recommend eating there as the food and menu are good.

Cafe Neo was extremely busy however every attempt was made to assist with seating. We were taken to the bar for awhile and then seated. The dessert and drinks was our agenda for the evening and it was definitely absolutely awesome. Very noisy and busy because it was peak season but very highly recommended, they have the coolest cocktails.

This place has a very nice ambiance for evening drinks, and that's about all that's good about it. The food (beef and prawns) tasted like it had been kept in a freezer for extended periods. Very poor quality and an absolute waste of money. I definitely do not recommend it.
