The location was spectacular, however my friend and I had to sit in the bar before a table was available. Someone needs to tell the bartender that even slinging drinks behind the bar you should "try to keep it classy"

I would have to confess, I wasn't really all that fussed about heading to this place. It had been recommended to us by a friend though so we thought we'd check it out. The menu is a sort of fusion between Indian food and a...More

Reservations are a must at this smallish waterside restaurant. Excellent seafood, large portions. We had the Biryani, with coconut cream rice, seared squid, and rockfish. I recommend the dish, as well as a side of frites.

I called the restaurant and was told they do not take reservations on the patio. If you have a reservation for the inside and there is a table outside they would accommodate you.
