We chose to have lunch here based on great reviews. Yes, we saw a turtle and a stingray swim by - and this was the highlight. The service was absolutely fine and the people helpful and friendly, but I think something was lost in translation....More

We went for lunch, it's a nice place to go for a meal. The service was OK we did not feel very welcome but it's OK we wanted to have lunch and this is what we got. Prices are OK for the area.
