“Don't expect a late evening....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

We ate here twice on a recent trip, and both times the food was good, service was excellent. Always busy so you may have to wait, but with many other places quiet, at least this had a good atmosphere. Funniest part is that the 10.30 close time - it is prominently displayed - is strictly observed, with the owner playing 'time to say goodbye' by Andrea Bocelli to emphasise its time to go! Anyway, worth a visit, good value all round.

“Good food but....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

We ate here 3 times as the food is really good and cheap. However, the boss (?, anyways, the guy, who makes the music) can be pretty rude. After a friend of us has asked whether he could change a few dongs into dollars, he was furiously yelling at her... By the way this happened after the music and electricity was apruptly turned off at 10.30 p.m. even though our drinks were still full...

“Bof... Nothing special at all”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

Was so disappointed by the food. After reading all those reviews I thought the food would be good but seriously the quality is really really average. Go there if you want to have a nice spot in the beach otherwise don't expect to have a great food experience. Disappointing.
The only place I consider a good restaurant on the island anyway, is Itaka.

“Very busy western owned place right on the beach.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

This restaurant is worth a visit just for the location and being one of the few places that draws a big crowd on long beach but quality suffers a bit as it turns out. Some dishes, like the Thai hot pot, are excellent but others like the sesame Shrimp and steamed crab where a hit and miss. As written in the beginning I still recommend the place but I would keep my expectations just below the raving reviews that will likely surround this one.
