“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

We were very excited to go to the Little Polynesian Cafe for lunch. A fabulous setting but we came away feeling rather disappointed with the food. Shame really. There needs to be some maintenance done around the cafe and sadly the tablecloths were very soiled. Think they had been left on since breakfast time. Such a lovely spot on the island, beautiful beach but unfortunately there food is letting them down. I did enjoy a lovely cocktail here all the same.

“What a view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

Great view from the deck and infinity pool.
Food was good, although I would skip the seafood tapas.
The rest was great.

“Dont bother!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

Really over priced, awful, pretentious food, fries were good luckily! or we would have starved. Surroundings were'nt bad apart from the slimy green pool? with pump and pool cleaner on as we were trying to have dinner?

We came here twice, firstly for an evening meal & then for a midday lunch.
Both visits were faultless, lovely people, great food & fantastic views.
