... this is a great place to relax, have breakfast/lunch/dinner before or after a swim in the lovely eel garden... they have a convenient shower for post-swim... and the staff is really nice. I never once felt rushed when I was there.

Good food, amazing location and nice staff! Perfect place to snorkel, relax or do some work (good free wifi). Try the tuna salad (no mayonaise and lots of herbs) and their great tahina!
