We weren't able to get the second beer even if we had ordered. prawn and avacado coctail was full of other vegetables while you hardly find a quarter of an avacado inside. the staff was sitting next to us and cleaning the plates and making a lot of noise while making preperations...

Go one day and get a good meal the next time not so good, it happens everywhere. No complaints with this place, the prawns were excellent as they should be in a mild curry sauce. Not expensive compared to the restaurants either side.

Arrived fairly early for dinner so the restaurant was near empty. Received attentive and friendly service and the food was superior to most places. Situated on the beach but still suitable if dressed up for the occasion. Little bit more expensive than most other places but you get what you pay for.

My wife and I decided to splurge on seafood last night and ordered huge jumbo prawns and a large serving of calamari. It was a beach BBQ dinner, where you choose your selection from a display platter, and they cook it for you.

Our 2nd visit with these guys and the location was beautiful. We got lost looking for the place since there was no name board but the people around directed us towards the location. Ideal spot to chill with a good book and a cool beer. The staff was welcoming and kind.
