Staff was very attentive and nice. Almost european like service. The foods were modest but the desserts were amazing. We ordered the Ceylon cup and Pineapple surprise and we really were surprised. A bit pricey though.

A very friendly restaurant that is situated on the banks of the river that can be clearly viewed whilst dining. We serve good seafood and tasty meals from curries to sandwiches and steaks.
