Probably one of best places for fish of which was ok if you have enough hot sauce. Beer was best thing in the place. Fans try to cool the place but still are limited.

The bar/restaurant overlooks the bay and has a great view no matter what time if day you go. The prices are a little high, but there aren't many places that are to this level of western standards in labuan bajo. The food isn't anything special....More
