Nothing wrong with this, but didn't dazzle. Prawns and tuna both slightly over-cooked. It was after sunset so didn't get to see the view.

We came here for lunch as part of a tour. Fantastic curry and rice and the best dhal I’ve ever had. Scenery, overlooking the water, is fantastic and the service was very friendly. They cooked a meal especially for our daughter.

Went here for dinner and can't see how this restaurant could be so highly rated. Owner was friendly enough but the whole restaurant is a fairly average affair. Nothing special about the food and the battered prawn dish that we had was a shocker -...More

Found this restaurant at TripAdviser and was disappointed by the quality of the fish, the roasted chicken and a mixed sea food plate for two. No finesse at all in these three dishes, dry chicken, seer fish (acceptable), but the worst was the mixed sea...More
