We ate here every night of our trip. The food is delicious, the service is friendly and helpful, you just have to relax a little and then it all is fine. For whatever reason the link between the Kitchen and Serving staff breaks, so just check when your group meal is delivered and one person's is missing, that it's coming,... More

Just enjoying our delicious mango shake and eating a great quality food on the beach, with a sea view and the sky full of stars. Amazing place to relax !!!

Great place for a sundowner or a meal. Their 2 for 1 cocktail happy hour is a good way to wind down from a day of diving (I particularly liked their Tequila Sunrise and their gin and watermelon concoction). Had dinner here and although the food took a little while to come out it was well worth the wait. Pork... More

I recommend this cosy place by the beach. Nice staff and probably the best food on the island. Drinks are very good as well! Seemed like a popular spot for both locals and visitors. Very lovely!

Super nice place by the beach to hang out on a bean bag, relax and enjoy the great BOGOF happy hour cocktails. Try the Island Caipirinha, it's delish!

We visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. Easily the best meal we had on the island. Good service, nice atmosphere and great food.

I stayed at the Ocean Vida hotel and dived with Sea-Explorers, each time I had a wonderful experience. The food at the restaurant was amazing, but both times the service was very poor. If the manager was present to receive my feedback I would have not left this review. The waitress brought our drinks out all separately, and only 2/6... More

Where my feet led me while walking down the Bounty beach was absolutely perfect! Colorful bean bags beautifully placed over the place I wouldn't mind couching the whole day. Great service from the waiting staff, they even accommodated my last minute order and not to mention their ever cordial manager, thanks Steff! So yeah, no wonder why I came back... More

After traveling through Asia for a while we felt like eating food from back home. Having a hospitality background I am usually a bit skeptical when a restaurant menu has it all from Asien food to Italien and European food but we have it a try as the atmosphere was great at the beach in the bean bags. I have... More
