Loved the food, extensive menu, great service and cocktails. Not far out of town. We would return in a heartbeat. We were referred by locals so wouldn't have known about it otherwise.

Excellent food at a reasonable price. The seafood platter was overwhelming and delicious! Friendly staff - happy to chat as we waited for our bus driver. Great location. Quiet and beautiful. Very peaceful, and loved the noises from nearby tribes across the water. Very natural.

Visited today for a drink and was kicked out by the owner for staying too long and using the WiFi without. The owner was rude and left me feeling badly.
