Description
Fresh caught seafood straight from the Indian Ocean is on displayed at your very eyes to be cooked just the way you want it, grilled, deviled, poached, fried or any other style that you prefer that would leave you with great satisfaction. Enjoy the romance of live Seafood, a tables set right on the beach facing the ocean, candle lighting, warm ocean breeze and the surf breaking softly just a few feet away with the many catamarans at sea. Watch the flickering illumination of hurricane lamps throw shadows of history on the soft sand under your bare foot. Designed to make your heart softly beat. Shades you from the sun and shelters you from the rain. Perched on the pristine sands of the paradise beach overlooking the Indian Ocean .It’s a quaint yet stylish venue with the signifying natural aesthetic beauty. A setting that is nothing short from your expected dream. The cool night breeze will caress you while waiters at island style attire cosset you.
