Food was good, atmosphere very lively, can't complain. Great place for those with kids. The floor is sand so you either will like that or not.

Grabbed a seafood marinara pizza and garlic bread takeaway tonight as we are exhausted from a huge day of rainforest walking and couldn’t be stuffed to dine in anywhere. It was amazing!!! Definitely try it!
