  • 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.
