Had dinner here and really enjoyed it. Had to book and was very busy and unfortunately couldn't get an outside table. The food was very good and we enjoyed our visit and would return. Prices are good and had no complaints about the service

Great Menu and quite excellent staff/waiters. We ate there on consecutive evenings (make sure you book in advance). Partly because it was a very decent restaurant, but also due to the lack of choice nearby. Nevertheless, I strongly recommend it (great wine list)

Right on the beach Lemon Grass is beautifully situated. Sadly it was windy and cool so the outside tables weren’t an option though I imagine that would be wonderful in the sunshine. The interior is nicely done and large. Do book as it is always...More
