As noted in the last couple of reviews, the menu and style has changed from what went in previous decades. Now the food is Vietnamese with a French touch. I suspect there was a bit of a learning curve, hence the previous 2-star reviews, but...More

Worth a visit. Bring your own alcohol. We had a set menu for 6 which was very nice. Food delicious and good varied choice. The waitress explained the dishes and advised us what to put with what to bring out the best flavours. Enjoy!

sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at
