The food is absolutely delicsious!!! I am a vegetarian so I wasn't expecting all too much, but the vegetarian curry was sensational. Good service and even better food. Lots of good cocktails.

Loved the food, loved the views, and most of all, loved the fast and friendly staff. The restaurant itself sits about 6 meters above the ground overlooking the coastal forest and onward to the ocean.
