This place has a long history of poor service and mediocre food ie: tourist trap and in the sixteen years I have lived in this area it has not gotten any better, and that is a shame.

Lovely American style diner with a varied menu (Hawaiin and American style food). Especially appreciated the excellent service and the chilli con carne and platter meal was generously portioned!

Our breakfast was fine but it took forever. We were in the restaurant for 20 minutes before coffee arrived and our order was taken. Since no one apologized for the wait, we were left to assume it is routine.

We had a fabulous breakfast here - ok not the most modern environment or spotlessly clean and as it is in the middle of a rain forest you will always get bugs. If you have had a bad experience why do you go back.
