On the road going away from the bay towards Super U. A 3 course meal for 2 with a beer and water for MR 989 (£20) was good value. Starters were Aubergine fritters, followed by beef curry and then pineapple. All outside table were taken so we sat inside which was nicely cooled by fans. All tables and chairs were covered in which, reminiscent of weddings and spotlessly clean. Service was slow and appeared somewhat bizarre as all set menu diners were served each course at the same time as one another. This worked well for us as late comers but may not have suited others who had been there longer than us. The food was good.

We ordered draught beer and and could then watch how they poured the beer from bottles into the glasses.
Nothing wrong about bottled beer, but why didn't they just tell us that no draught was available instead of trying this cheap trick.
We also ordered chicken with chips and salad. The salad was just skipped without any Explanation, but the Price was still the one published in the menu Card for chicken with chips AND salad.

A great night here with a very entertaining host who says he makes his own rum !!! . We tried this as a night cap , and wow it was good .
The food was very good without being excellent and fairly priced , curries although tasty were very mild , the host explained most tourists don't like hot food , maybe staff could ask how hot customers want them when ordering ?
Four of us had seafood grill and although very good could have been a bit larger with more sauce which was barely more than a spoonful each .
If you want good food a fun host and fun atmosphere it is well worth a visit .

Good food and service. Absolutely at place to visit - for the wine and nice cooked food. Or take at break in midday and enjoy the homemade french fries with Arioli.(garlic mayo)
