This was a random stop as we took the wrong road from where we thought we were going. We had seen this place before but it never was overly busy despite the look out views. We were suspicious about the food when we saw the size of the menu but ordered two lattes and an omelette and congee for me.... More

Wow. It was sooooo delicious. Had a deep fried fish with deep fried green vegetable things (don't know the name). Great view with great food.

We stopped there for a snack and had a good time, friendly staff, really good smoothies and lemonades and a nice view! Definitely worth a stop on the way to the Old Town or back. When we left we had a little motorbike-accident and the staff immediately came to help us!

If you're staying at a hotel, don't eat the overpriced mediocre food there! Get on a motorbike or bundle yourself into a taxi and come here instead.
