What a superb restaurant. Excellent staff friendly and helpful, the menu has a good selection of food, with good portions. If you get to book early you can have a romantic meal overlooking the Indian ocean.

My sister and I needed some time to bond and catch up. We had some smoothies and starter portions. Tried their Le Mint smoothie and im hooked. Great location and sea view. Great tourist attraction.

We came in the afternoon for a cold drink. Sat looking out over the amazing turquoise ocean. We loved it so much we came back for dinner in the evening. It was very busy and a bit loud, but the food was delicious. My husband had steak and I had sticky ribs. All wonderful. The service was friendly and efficient... More

I had the carpaccio and my friend the calamari, both washed down with a great Chardonnay while enjoying the beautiful scenery, life can hardly get any better.
