From the moment you enter this restaurant the effect is intoxicating. The dim lights, the pebble stones, plants, trees and an abundance of wood that decorates this establishment makes you feel like you have been transported to a village in the Far East.
Once you decide on a table the staff welcome you with complimentary vegetarian spring rolls: crispy on the outside but soft on the inside.
You are then escorted to pick and choose from the seafood market. You know the deal: a bed of ice on which sit, in this case, very fresh looking fish that could have landed there straight from a boat.
You then tell your waitress whether you want your meal grilled, steamed, sautéed or fried. The variety is good and we recommend for starters the calamari that was cooked just right. The baby hammour is good steamed and the dorade is superb with the Thai herbs and lemon grass.
You have two choices of prawns; opt for the local prawns in green coconut curry unless you want to seriously do damage to your wallet with the jumbo prawns!
Steamed rice and a mix of vegetables cooked in oyster sauce will complement your main course. Fresh mango and papaya or ice cream will serve as a clean finish if you have enough room.
