Owner/waiter just didn’t care for us, trew menu on the table and while walking by shouted ‘drinks?’. We hadn’t even finished our meal or he yelled ‘bill?’. Extremely rude and the food was average.

I can't say too much about the food here. Never had the pleasure to taste it. After sitting at the table for 10 minutes, while 3 servants passed us by. No one even greeted us, never got the menu. We decided to leave. It was...More

Tusker Restaurant opened in May 2011 to cater to every food loving people. The cozy atmosphere and lots of open space is very relaxing. Beside Tusker Restaurant being solar powered we are using a lot of ingredients from our own farm, like eggs,pepper,chilies,bananas,mangoes,lime and lemon. We also support very much feeding mothers,children with or without special needs and our dear friends the dogs. Our restaurant is of course wheelchair friendly as well. Come with your family to enjoy the evening. We speak French,Dutch,English and German.
