The food was great - especially the squid teeth with bread (sounds weird but delicious). The spirally shelled snails in the coconut sauce were also fantastic. If you want a local and authentic experience then this is the place to go. Highly recommended if you...More

Taste is good with fresh seafood. Price is reasonable. Space is large but it so hot at the afternoon. I think you can go at after 4h PM.
