Just had short stop here and had some coffee and it was very quite, and nice place with lovely music and relaxable view over the sea. Fantastic place. I will visit it again for lunch very soon.

Gorgeous location on the beach. Charming staff and the Thai green curry is amazing. We walked here from the Conrad and it couldn't have been friendlier. They had a happy hour and the French kiss cocktail is a must. 💜
