The restaurant is nice on the 1st floor with a great view over the lagoon. We had a nice dinner and the atmosphere was good: music was played live and the staff was friendly. The prices are around 10-15 dollars. We would come back again!

The food here was good, but they lost us when they served store bought naan-bread. The drinks were really good though! :D and the atmosphere overlooking the water was excellent!
