The food was amazing and very refreshing fare. It was light and fresh. This restaurant has real bacon and AVOCADO!

Very tasty. Portions adequate. Service pleasant. Many vegetarian options. The only thing that bothered me was that, in this FUNCTIONAL AFRICAN STATE, my receipt was hand written and not fiscal. I would prefer if Hilary paid her taxes in her host country.
