This is now closed and shows no signs of opening again. If you stop and look through the right hand gate you can still see the falls. Let's hope that someone buys the place and does a lot of work on it

Owners have locked down this place. It use to be a very lovely restaurant and bar with relaxing backdrop of the falls. However this place is no longer operational so be careful of "tour guides" and taxi operators taking you here.

Our tour guide, Rusty, stopped by here when we asked to see some gardens. The place is closed, but a caretaker took us through the gardens and gave us a history of the former plantation and the many plants and their uses.

The Ruins Restaurant has been closed since last year. Too bad as during the day a lot of tour buses would stop there and the tourist would enjoy looking at the falls and the beautiful big Koi fish swimming in the ponds around the dining...More
