Had fish with the special garlic sauce and prawns and both were delicious. Owner was friendly and helped us decide what to get. Great spot right on the edge of the beach.

I loved their big portions. When ordering fish it comes with a big plate of rice and tangy salad. I’d love to come back only for this sweet sour salad. Service was also very warm, welcoming and attentive. Recommended!
