I really enjoyed the food here. It was tasty and fresh. We ordered drinks, sides, main and dessert. It's pricey but worth going if you just want to stop off for lunch and want to try something a little bit different. The view was beautiful

The food is fantastic, but so is the price. The location is great, it is worth sitting out on the terrace and watch the jet boats taking tourists to the Hukka falls and making impressive maneuvers on the river.

Was a little weary of a prawn farm meal. But I was greatly surprised the prawn skewers were Devine, the chowder was just the best. And the fish and chips were plain amazing. Overall I would love to congratulate the staff on a visit that...More
