Our guesthouse suggested this restaurant for fine dining and arranged to book us a table as this place gets quite busy. The food and the service were equally good and a nice variety of vegetarian meal choices. Amazing atmosphere. We highly recommend it.

Is this restuarant appropriate for international visitors? We were warned from eating raw fruits and veggies due to the risk of travelers' sickness. Any suggestions from prior travelers would be appreciated!
