So I ordered fish soup to start & chicken yassa. No starter and got fish yassa. Girl was unapologetic saying I didn't hear you? Saying that the fish yassa was good, plenty of it. Staff were attentive & the beers cold. No entertainment on the night I was there but on walking past other nights it does seem to have some good acts. £7.10

We ate at Smiling Coast on a Friday evening in January with a view to watching the band. My partner ordered grilled fish in a banana leaf. What appeared was mushy garlic fish in tin foil. We spoke to the waitress to say she'd brought the wrong dish but she was adamant it was what we'd ordered but that they had no banana leaves left. The fish was inedible and at 350 dalaisi was a rip-off. The only redeeming feature was that the portion was small. We didn't stay for the band.

Such a shame as we've had many a nice meal here over the years but this was the worst meal / dining experience we've had in 25 years of holiday travel.
