I had the market fish and it was delicious! Well presented and cooked. Coffee is great too! The surroundings are relaxing and a good selection of food and wines. It is expensive but great for a treat!

Location of this restaurant is just magic, feeling you have been transported into tropical forest but without all the nasty creepy crawlers to go with that. Service is friendly, but some serving staff should have more knowledge regarding food and wine being served. Food is...More
