Went for dinner as a group on a Thursday during the Creole theme night. Setting is amazing, food is ok but service was very slow.

Very tasty food and very quick service. Wonderful location, right next to the beach so you can hear a bit the ocean. It looks like every evening they are fully booked.

We visited twice during our stay, which is a recommendation . The first time the food from the days specialities was better as there was more choice from the Chef's Blackboard but overall the food was very good. We ate tapas and main and desert courses and between five of us tried a wide range. The location is great but... More

We arrived on a busy Sunday lunch time without reservation, there was high wind and the only table available was on the exposed beach front with amazing views. It's a shame about the slow service because the food was very good it's just that we were very cold in the high wind by the time it arrived and couldn't wait... More

Twenty minutes to order food and drinks and nearly one hour to get the food. Even at an ambient temperature of 22C we began to feel cold. I had a squid salad (cold, would take less... More

Hearty portions of good quality food in lovely atmosphere and setting - the carved wooden furniture is beautiful and fits the stunning beach backdrop perfectly. Service is good, but slower on weekends and better if reservations have been made in advance. No problem if so or on a quieter week day. A number of friends have independently enjoyed this place...

Great place for drinks and food on the side of the Indian Ocean. A bit pricey but location is worth it. I had the tuna creole and my wife had the takamaka dish. Coktails were good!

Didn't really think this was good value. Food was average. Seats by the beach were rather uncomfortable
