“Great view, crappy service and Caterpillars”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Only thing going for this place is the idyllic location and superb view. Food was OK, but the time it took to get a simple sandwich was truly astonishing. The waiter didn't have any idea what was on the menu and kept going back to discuss with the other waiters and chef before responding to the most basic of requests. And they still got it wrong. The place also had caterpillars crawling all over the place. This didn't seem to bother the staff though.

“Great location and good food.....kids menu too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed our evenings. The vista is 5 star, the food really good, especially the curries. The kids menu was excellent offering a great selection, first time we had seen a kids menu. The staff and service was excellent. It is just a giant bungalow with an open kitchen, the kids played happily on the beach, whilst waiting for diner. Highly recommend!

“Million dollar view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

Went there for lunch with business associates. The food was good but not outstanding. It did not need to be, because the location, the breezes, and the waves were perfect. Service was slow. They have recently renovated the restaurant and just reopened a week before our lunch. Credit card telephone hookup was not working, so we had to pay with cash (USD, fair exchange). Portions are large. Total bill for lunch for 6 adults with soft drinks only was $53.

“Nice beach setting but below average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

The waiter said it made them nervous in the kitchen when customers had special requests, but they succeeded in delivering my fish and salad without dressings as requested, but really the food was just average, not a good cut of fish and my husbands curry was lacking in favour or texture. On the day we were there the staff seemed a little 'off-hand' but it was the end of the season.
