What a lovely surprise! This restaurant, suggest to me by Lonely Planet, offers several delicious dishes to try absolutely. A tender beef, an incredible duck and a sparkling cocktail composed our dinner. A good and fast service completed all.

We had an evening meal here and had a selection of ‘small plates’ which are similar to tapas or raciones. Each dish was excellent. I would highly recommend the food. We had cheese croquettes, crab croquettes, chickpea salad, meatballs and spiced pumpkin, all thoroughly lovely.

Totally overrated Western-Thai fusion, AVOID IT! Good atmosphere but the food is not up to standard. Crab croquettes and meatball starter were mediocre beyond belief. Spring rolls not bad. Fish fillet with mussels and curry sauce was good, daily special of seafood platter was decent...More

I know,been back and forwards with trip adviser so many times,but as a business owner it is almost impossible to change things wich are not right. We don't have a website only a facebook page,but thanks for pointing it out.

This was a find right towards the end of our holiday and I’m soooo glad we found it! Totally different to other places on the island, and quite refreshing after 3 weeks eating plenty Thai food. The quesadilla and the jalepino croquettes were definitely our...More

A cool and hip road side restaurant where you can indulge yourself with creative flavours of the world. A wide range of delicious sandwiches and other goodies during daytime. An exciting list of small plates,starters and main courses during the night. A nice bar environment with fine wines,cocktails and spirits.
