Good service, nice view, good food, fairly priced. We enjoyed a whole cooked spicy fish. Value for money ina friendly atmosphere. The beach is fairly nice with small waves for kids to enjoy.

Love the location, right on the beach with seats built into the rocks. Great for a drinks at night with music playing, but not always reggae! On Tuesdays and Thursdays there is a fire show which was brilliant. Very relaxing place.

Lovely setting, food was good. Disappointed to hear a large group being given a discount on the proviso they gave a 5star Trip Advisor review......made me doubt the legitimacy of other reviews!
