Portions of especially the starters were huge as well as appetizing. Haloumi cheese starter could have served as a main course and was delicious. Steak was excellent and great service. The situation is ideal overlooking the Indian Ocean.

The views our to sea are lovely if you sit outside. Sadly it was a bit windy so we have to come in. Food was nice and server was super friendly.

Interesting from the point of view that within minutes of sitting down I was "wearing" an orange juice tipped over me by our waitress and later cutlery that fell from a plate. Not an apology from management nor a memorable meal.

Restaurant is in a great location on the seafront overlooking the sea. Food was really nice, especially the grilled calamari. The service was a bit slow to come and take the order, and food took over 40 minutes to arrive even though the restaurant wasn't that busy. If service was better, this place would be great!

Our group have breakfast almost every Saturday after Park Run, If we're lucky enough to get Gary as our waiter he always already knows our order. Bit upsetting to see prices increased with the latest upgrade, but accept this is part of business and we'll continue to support.

I visited this restaurant during a weekday in November. The service was friendly and fast. I ordered the Boss Burger. It consists of two roasted buns, filled with a 100% beef patty with a layer of basting sauce, a slice of ham (way too soft to be called bacon), avocado, crispy cheese and topped with two fried onion rings and...

Went for late lunch here. Both had salads, nice portion, fresh ingredients, tasty, very hulpfull waitress. Half of the other staff was watching soccermatch and some were chewing gum while serving. Its a busy place but it needs some redecoration and some good cleaning.
