“Friendly staff”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We ate here one evening after walking back from The Bakau Guest house where we watched the fish coming in one evening.
Staff were friendly. I had pan fried fish and my husband had shrimp piri piri , both were excellent. We shared a large fruit salad for dessert , washed down with beer . Bill came to approx £ 15 including tip.

“Good band, good value”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Visited here when there was a live band - excellent atmosphere, food was ok, the crazy Dutch guy next to us made the night - looked like Compo from Last Of The Summer Wine with a mullet and appeared to be a very large Bob Marley fan.
Food was pretty good, can't remember what I had because I can't remember leaving the place.... I just remember it was pretty good!
The staff were great - really friendly and having as good a time, if not better, than the guests! By the end of the night even the chef had come out to join in the dancing!
