Reviewed 26 December 2016

this is definitely the best sea view for an afternoon treat. My wife and I came across this cafe by accident and were absolutely impressed by its great sea view facing the airport. we sat in the open area (smoking area) next to the sea. we can see coral fish swimming less than a few feet away from our table. the food is good and inexpensive. we spent almost an hour there feeling so refresh and recharged when we left.

The burgers were dry and the bun was like rusk. The fries were loaded with salt. The Coke was not fizzy and the waiter said it was poured to a cup from a 1.5l bottle which was stored. And apparently the food was bad because the kitchen was busy. Not worth it. Service was slow and bad and food was not worth it. Started to rain and there were no outdoor umbrellas and everybody had to leave their tables and go.

The view is fantastic and the food is yummy! I came here for breakfast buffet and it has wide range of food, from Indian to Western. The staffs are very friendly and price wise, slightly expensive.

We visited Citron for an early dinner with a group of 12 europeans at the end of a dive safari. We were placed at a large table all the way to the right of the outside (smoking) area. This is a bit too close to the kitchen exhaust duct to my taste.

Pros:
- Friendly, helpful staff, all indian that night.
- Good thai food. Separate dedicated kitchens for western and thai dishes.
- Spacious outside area, right on the sea wall

Cons:
- Slow service
- Some dishes only available after 19:30 (this is described on the menu as 'only dinner')
- Separate kitchens means the last orders were brought out when other guests at the table had already finished theirs.
- No lighting. By the time dinner was served we were using our phones to find the food on our dishes.
- Some tables are right in front of the toilet.
- No toilet paper in the toilet, just the 'bum gun'.

I recognize some of these gripes are specific to the western costumer demographic. All the same, I feel there is room for improvement.
