We weren't offered any water but sadly that appears to be the 'norm' here in Raro. We ordered the chicken open sandwich and the fish wrap. The chicken was... More

We’ve had mixed experiences at this restaurant over the years but last year the food was good from the new menu although there were hiccups with service on our second visit. So we went there this year expecting the food to be just as good. Unfortunately, as we discovered, there had obviously been a change in the kitchen staff and... More

Absolute...WOW! Friday night dining of delightful cuisine, beverages and entertainment. Succulent pork ribs, king prawns and matching sides. Can't go wrong as a single/double or group...value for money. Ate the periperi prawns, sizzling pork platter, tarragon potatoes, tossed salad and calamari. We were hungry when we got there...but the portions blew us away. Matched our selection with wines, beers, cocktails.... More

The menu is quite limited, but the quality is excellent. Special themed nights are held which are well worth attending

We ate here most days whilst staying here, and could not fault anything. There was plenty on our plates each meal and each time also presented beautifully. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys here. Breakfast was good and for lunch the MAHI MAHI fresh fish pices with lemon and garlic aioli dressing was fantastic. When we come back... More

Stayed at the hotel and ate here a few times, all meals were tasty, well priced and good sized. Cocktails were the best I had on the island, tropical daiquiri needs its own special mention. Island night was pretty cool, food was nice and entertainment was good. Staff were vey attentive and always went the extra mile.
