The beach shack is a few minutes outside the town but well worth a visit. The layout, sand floor and the staff make the atmosphere and experience enjoyable. The menu has a variety of dishes to suit most palates from Malaysian curry to Jamaican steak...More

This is a great restaurant for casual dining. Its slightly out of town, so you will need to drive/taxi if you are staying close to Macrossan street. Not really easy walking from there. The restaurant is a beach theme, with sand as the floor for...More
