Tried better suckling pig at the restaurant across the road. They segregate tourists from the locals in this restaurant. Better value for money elsewhere.

Really not tasty, tourist trap, don't go! The pig is tasteless, the dessert is horrible, only good thing was the melon soup at the start.

I would make a reservation for 2pm. You can arrive a bit earlier (1:30pm) have a drink at the entrance bar and wait to be seated. Go for the leg. The ribs are very fatty.
