Local restaurant adjacent to beach. Food was at best average. Satay was deep fried. The mango chicken was also deep fried and seemed to lack any mango. White pepper crab was good but very little meat and quite expensive. Several dogs roaming round the restaurant....More

The fish and seafood are delicious and prices are fare. You can sit outside at the terrace, just in front of the sea and enjoy the sunset while having dinner. In low season you are almost by yourself! The staff is super friendly too.

It's really cheap, we had prawns, lobster, mantis prawns, a couple of beers, and it was less than $20 a head. I would have paid that just to sit on the waterfront, it's so beautiful at sunset.
