We had lunch here almost every day during our week at Andilana Beach resort. The views are gorgeous all around, and the buffet offers fresh seafood and other options.

Beautifully located; for lunch you can eat here at no extra cost (buffet-style); for dinner, you can pay an extra and spend a romantic night <3.

Lovely restaurant, romantic setting. You can have lunch there on all inclusive package but have to pay extra for dinner. French wine was lovely!

Hotel offers a free Honey Moon dinner. As the hotel is all included we had chance to taste foods in here. There are variety of options. I will miss the shrimps inside coconut. They also prepare vegeterian foods for my wife. It seems a bit expensive but we did not pay for the food.

Regular buffet food, with great seafood. The view is absolutely unique! You are eating on top of a rock with panoramic sea view.

Fantastically located with a beautiful view, but overrated as far as food goes. It specializes in seafood (always fresh catch of the day).

This restaurant is within the Anidlana beach resort, but it's not inclusive in the all inn price. We had the VIP lunch which was excellent. A private deck with a stunning view over the sea. The four course lunch was sublime and if you opt for the seafood, you will a huge lobster freshly caught of the coast.

Lunch is at the direct service of the village Andilana, dinner is open access. Council to reserve a table at the beach, because the evening is dark, and you can not enjoy the exceptional view of the day. Very good menu, impeccable service, utmost privacy and tranquility, with the touch of delightful sound of the sea.
