The good is not fresh. The service was really long even for drinks. The prices are not cheap. This is the same that the €€ restaurants. Except the view and the feet on the sand, I don't recommend this place.

Delicious seafood (we got seafood tapas and seafood soup), amazing drinks and very relaxed and tranquil dining experience right by the beach, especially during sunset.

Among all the restaurant standing in the beach this one is a good address. The fish is good and the waiters are so kind. You don’t wait too much time to eat. I recommand.

The sea food was delicious, the waiters friendly and the cocktails very good. Happy hour for cocktails is from 5 to 8 pm! We will definitely go back - the ocean view is amazing!

My partner paid 45000tsh for the jumbo grilled lobster. It was massive and really nice. Happy hour cocktails (5pm -8pm daily) are awesome. 5000tsh each from a big list, very boozey. Free WiFi too. What more could you want?
