“Interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

a nice change from the Resorts for a drink but dont expect too much! there is a upstairs facility which essentially is a floor supported by some poles, safe and reasonably comfortable with a view over the beach. Just basic but still a change from the resort

“Skip the crappy food get a beer instead!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Perhaps it was an off night, but I just finished some of the worst (over-cooked) prawns I've ever had. Granted it is off seaon here and quiet but I wouldn't expect fish done this poorly in a place 100 meters from the water.
The setting is quite nice, and the owner seemed sincere, but the dinner @ $20 U.S was more than disappointing.

Thank you for your comments we are in the process of revamping our menu as in rainy season we are unable to use our outside BBQ. We will be sure to brief our kitchen staff accordingly.

“Great place for breakfast and a meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Although we didn't stay there we did have drinks and a meal. Great atmosphere with a really cool beach hut. Meet the owner who was really friendly and gave us help with our onward journey. Would visit again.

“Excellent value food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Excellent value beach restaurant which is part of Aqua Inns.

Situated under a Robinson Crusoe type open building made using reclaimed wood and gives a nice beachside atmosphere.
Food good, they are starting to offer more local food which personally I prefer to eat local.
I had a really good fiery prawn curry and rice......they can make less spicy if you prefer.

“Great spot, the only bar on the beach, could do with an extra staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This is a great little bar, we ate here 3 days out of 5 and had a drink most days.
It helps being the only bar on the beach.
They could do with an extra staff.
While the place was not very busy the one guy running round did not work.
have a drink and watch the sun go down
