“Great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

This seems a popular place as we found it was quite busy and lots of activity and busy vibe.

Food taste was excellent, even though we waited a bit, quality seemed high.

Found the staff to be very helpful and the two managers who came to check on us, Lungi and Nsika made us feel quite nice.

Highly recommended

“A great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

If you want an ocean view...this is not the place to go.
But if you want good food, friendly service and a great atmosphere I recoomend it.
Great at the price.

“Not the Best...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

Calamari was rubbery, staff were friendly and the service was good. This restaurant sometimes puts out great food, but it seems they also quiet often lately have their off days...

“Situated ok but only street view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Good food. Very busy at the time we visited. Waiters were attentative, our waiter was over-zealous, spilling our wine on two occasions when pouring into our glasses. Otherwise, a nice casual experience.
