The best restaurant in Bakau. Very good dishes with African food, European food etc. I'd like the Chicken Sizzle the most. You can also order the beef sizzle or the fish sizzle. Really the best food in Bakau.

Max was great. Lovely, friendly local men who made our stay great. Even threw in some local singing and drumming. Was good to support the local community.

A very friendly relaxed place. Nice cold beer. A good stopping point on way to Bakau and for refreshments on the walk back.
