A familiar revisit, same staff beach side bar and restaurant, all very efficient and polite under "Big Solomon" watchful guidance. Friendly and helpful without being patronising. Has a bit of an ex-pat feel outside of mass tourist trade times, given the Dutch run bungalow operation...More

Do you serve vegetarian food?

Response from Nightowl0808 | Reviewed this property |
Yes there is a limited vegetarian section, several Africa dishes are meat free, if you advance order the chefs are very accommodating. Lunch time always very busy with sun seekers off the beach, be prepared to wait.
