Service here was very friendly BUT VERY slow. However, sitting looking out over the ocean and all the activities that entails was lovely.

Came here for a drink at sunset and dinner afterwards. The terrace and its view of the sunset are very nice, drinks are reasonably priced. The restaurant one floor higher however ist not recommendable at all. Out of the 8 dishes on the menu more than half of them were unavailable, there was no dessert at all and the service proved to be incredibly slow and not at all helpful. The main course (fish) we had was good though.

Our first experience here (a few drinks and a quick snack) was actually very nice.

When we returned a few days later, the service was a big mess. We sat in the dark for quite a while without anyone attending to us, and when they did it seems like none of the information came through despite the fact that we must have repeated some questions five or six times. Quite a weird experience!

We asked for a glass with our beer (which seems only normal, right?) but after asking again and again and waiting 45 minutes, my husband decided to walk to the bar and get it himself. The same thing happened with the water and the appetizers, and we got very annoyed as our kids were getting thirsty and hungry.
When the dishes finally arrived after what seemed an eternity, they were different from what we ordered and the portions were very small.

What a shame- the setting is magnificent but the service lousy. No more dinner here for us!

Brilliant view of the sunset over the ocean, while enjoying a refreshing drink after spending a full day traveling from Serengeti

We ordered for two juices and a dish.
45 minutes later, the dish arrived but it was very different from what was written on the menu.
No cutlery was given so we just waited without being able to eat the dish which eventually went cold.
The waiter was of no assistance.
The juices never came even though there were hardly any customers to tend to.
Furthermore, the food is expensive.

An awful experience and a waste of time.
