If you want to sit right by the water and the fan- yes, make reservations. The restaurant is huge, you will always get a table ;) and you can cool off at the bar lounge- it’s so nice there ;)

Mediterranean and Thai but best is to ask the chef Jonathan if you have a special request. He is an Aussie born in Brazil, educated in England and trained in London and Switzerland. Fun guy to get to know
