Love coming here. The tuna in curry & coconut sauce was divine as were the fried sweet potatoes. Attentive service and stunning views. We came to the 6:30pm setting and lovely to see the light changing over the superb sea view.

I had the tuna fish in a curry which was really nice. The place looks cozy although it was a bit windy outside on the terrace.
