We ate here as an alternative to El Gato, as it was closed. We had only eaten here once before, in 2006, and it was poor then, nothing has changed. Food was tastless and over priced we now know we do not have to go back

We visited or tried to visit this establishment. We sat down, ordered our drinks. However decided to not stay and eat as evwrything is old and falling to pieces. Tables and chairs sticky and dirty. I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone.

We have been going there every year and look forward to eating their famous family seafood platter in the next few days. Kids absolutely love this place and the food is excellent. This is the 1 place we look forward to each year....

After a long day on the beach the drinks and good service were very welcome. Used the entertainer app and got 3 free meals. Great seafood had by most. Drinks were good and the prices reasonable. Would definitely go back

I love coming across different looking out of the norm restaurants and this is one of them. An inside oasis and jungle feel but delightful. Great service and great food. Relaxed ambiance and enjoyed the music selection. Worth a night out.

We arrived without a booking, they made a plan as quick as they could despite it being peak season and a Sunday lunch. My partner had the Sunday lunch special which was outstanding. I have the crayfish thermidor. The service was excellent and the owner really cares and makes sure her patrons are cared for. If back in the area... More
