Very nice setting along Biven's Arm. There is outdoor seating alongside the water. Sure to see something, Anhinga's diving, a turtle etc. Food is fabulous! Fresh, lots of veggies, best flavors. Service a tad slow, but worth the wait.

Pad Thai and a shrimp noodle bowl (soup) plus an order of shrimp summer rolls and jasmine tea, with tip, cost us $40. Not real cheap, but servings are generous and ingredients were fresh. Flavors were excellent and the food came out fast and piping...More
