This restaurant does not really look like much from outside. It gives the vibe of a cheapish beach bar, but could that first impression not be more wrong. It is laid back and it is at the beach, but in all its positive senses. Waiters...More

Hi Sabrina- Thanks for the great review. Unfortunately most of our goods are imported from South Africa and we pay a big surcharge for goods having to be transported from there. Best regards Rob Parker

A great place right on the beach. Perfect for meals and drinks with a sea view and watching the boats, dhows and water sports. Accommodation is clean and comfortable. Bar and kitchen service is very slow though and could do with improvement.

The restaurant is located on the beach. The road leading to the restaurant is very bad . I recommend walking to them if you do not have a 4x4. Menu limited and a bit pricey. Food fresh and tasty.

Thanks for your review. It would help if you could be more specific about which meal you found to be average. Elsewhere you will find flattering comments on just about every item on our menu. I wonder if the Woodhut could say the same.

Yes they do, connectivity is a problem at times. But they make alternate plan when there's connectivity issues.
