You enter this restaurant via a very brief 30 foot pontoon ride over the water. The Houseboat is very quaint, and has a warm, romantic atmosphere. Service is very friendly and professional. Menu is varied and our food was first class. Excellent value for money and a delightful experience.

This restaurant is a "must go" if you are in the area. We sat upstairs and the atmosphere was great. We all had good food - the gnocchi, the lobster pasta, the fresh catch, the calamari, and others - nothing was bad or boring. The service and the bartender were great as well. I highly recommend.

Stopped in for "Happy Hour". Two for 1 local drinks. Enjoyed a couple Red Stripes and a fabulous Tenderloin Satay appetizer.

We sat on the upper level, and received fantastic treatment by Kamar. We were not rushed, which was a lovely aspect. We had two starters, grilled calamari, and pork satays. For main dishes, I had the snapper, and my husband had the special lobster shrimp pasta. For dessert we had a slice o banana cake, which was similar to American... More

Even though we were staying at an all inclusive we had to try this restaurant and were not disappointed. From the Huck Finn ride to the houseboat to dessert, everything was great. The drinks were fantastic. My wife had the gnocchi and loved it. I had the chicken and couldn't get enough. Service was top notch. This place is not... More
