One of the few places open on Sunday for breakfast. Meal was nice and the staff were friendly. Great view of the water. Need to try the lunch menu on our next visit.

Stopped here couple of times for lunch during our stay. Good selection, licensed, great service and is very busy. Toasted sandwiches are great.

Last time I was in Raro, this place had been burned to the ground, so I was looking forward to trying it. We ate here for lunch twice and both times was excellent and good value for money.

We had breakfast - place is clean and tidy - menu not very exciting - basic but enjoyable - more could be done here with high paying tourists accommodated close by - evening meals used to be available but not now = has potential

Yummy food and reasonably priced. Good spot if you want to go for a snorkel before or after lunch. Cooked my poached eggs to perfection so thumbs up from me

Ordered hot chocolate on a rainy day and got attitude from the waitress if thats all we were ordering, as we told her we wanted more time she left and never came back, so we paid for the drinks and took our business elsewhere

We ate here on a regular basis while staying in October. Lovely breakfasts and burger at a very good price. Also has an amazing view over the water.
