I ordered the 'fish and chips' but was told it was unavailable. The waitress suggested the boneless grilled fish. But, there were bones. Only paid for the Coke, left and never looked back. Skip it.

Nice location at the beech, probably good for a drink while the sun is going down. High prices, but food quality was poor.

This restaurant is beautifully situated at the end of Takamaka beach. But that is the only good thing about it. We tried the lunch buffet. For 300 SCR you get average food, no more. Good to fill you up, but nothing special about it. Enough for seconds though. The bar area had an untidy look and feel. Pint of draught... More

A normal pizza, some overcooked squid and octopus for USD 177 is a rip-off! Order took an hour to be served; drinks are average. NEVER EAT HERE!

"...This is a definite must-do on any given Sunday...you see as a Trotter, I have always marveled at places, museums and sites but never thought that cuisine could be this good in large quantities... the set up here was a Buffet Style and yet the food was fresh, delicious, restaurant quality, full of variety and the right temperature at all...

We went there to eat something small in the afternoon. Pizza's were not available so there was not much of a choice left so we decided just to have a drink.

Ok Sunday Creole buffet with the usual creole dishes. Unfortunatley the Curries are all of exactly the same flavour there are four types, the rest of the food is mediocre. Located on a stunning beach with great views.

Another fantastic location. Great beach bar in every sense...especially as the floor of the bar is sand ;-) Had a very pleasant lunch and some nice cool Savanahs. Love this island.

Price for a la carte are a little steep but their Sunday Brunch is well worth it! Why don't you try the bat curry? My fave was their amazing garlic sauce that I can eat with almost anything.
