The food was 5* quality along with the very friendly wait staff. We had tuna steak and ribs. The wine, cappuccino and mouthwatering dessert completed the meal perfectly. The food was delicious and highly recommend it to Families or couples.

A very different look from Punda. Lively with all the shops you would find at home. A different style of housing.

It is realy "the other side". It is more lively and less touristic. People really live here. Some houses have been restored, while other ones nees serious maintenance.

There are many beautiful buildings worth looking at but there are also many abandoned structures that spoil the overall effect. We took a van tour through and did not receive much info.
