This restaurant is incredible! Such a beautiful view and a cool vibe. They had 2 vegetarian friendly dishes that looked good (an Asian meal with tofu or veggie risotto which I got a loved). Really good drinks and THE MUSIC. I knew they had live music, but I was not expecting a full on show. Highly recommend!
Very nice atmosphere and good service. I've been there twice and ordered the fish and coconut milk. The first time it was amazing and the second time it was disappointing. I plan to come back here again as the overall experience has been really good, it's a shame that the food is not consistent.
