Gorge on the seafood spread by the sea
First thought.. our cab driver tricked us into getting to this specific sea side restaurant in lieu of his commission.. Sure enough, but worth the experience. The waves crashing right in front of you, musicians playing your native language song (turns out to be a little embarrassing when you're literally being forced to tip them and you're carrying no cash on you). The mix sea food platter was humongous! Lobster, Crab, Clams, Shrimps, Calamari, Snapper, Rice, Soup, avocado & coconut drink... Phew! Insanely expensive at $100 for a meal though.

Frankly, apart from the nice setting, the experience was disappointing. The seafood was poor in quality and taste. The crabs in particular were not very well prepared. Everything was just bland. Not worth the effort.

Nice seafood and sunset but lacking the finer things!
It was a nice experience on the beach, with a beautiful sunset. If you can get past the little touches that are missing, it was a good experience overall. The chairs we sat on on the beach were ripped on the padding, and the toilet block was not clean at all. But the seafood was weighed in front of us and cooked fresh, served with generous portions of sides such as beans and rice, and tasted delicious. We had the squid/calamari and the barramundi and both were cooked beautifully. Overall we enjoyed it for the sunset and lovely seafood. But it didn’t have the touch of class that some people might be looking for in a romantic dinner. Note - drivers get a commission for taking you there, so we felt very rushed in when we pulled up in our taxi unknowing of this fact. We didn’t mind so much as the drivers have to make money somehow, but it was definitely a ‘tourist catch’ to be mindful of.
