Was recommended this place by a local for lunch and it didn't disappoint. The grilled fish with rice and salad was simple but absolutely delicious. Excellent value too.

This is a great lunch stop with fresh sea food that's delicious and not at all expensive. They also have the menus in several languages, which is very handy for foreigners who don't know the name of the fish.

The crayfish was delicious. I didn't mind the very high price, as this reflects the scarcity of a resource that needs control over consumption. I certainly won't be having any more in a hurry. Quite nice presentation, but the amount of garlic bread was stingy....More

Recommended by Lonely Planet. Freshly cooks seafood to order on BBQ outdoors. Very good and cheaper than the local restaurants. Everything served in a sandwich or with rice and salad. Open daily weather permitting from 11am
