We are staying at the grand-next door to the lava lounge and had bad music thumping throughout the night until 3am. As well as that a girl constantly screamed and yahooed. So be warned if you are staying in town

Manager is great. Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Fantastic long island iced tea ;) Can sit on a jetty with a cocktail and look down at urchins and fish. Pizza has a nice thin base. yum. Mexican chicken wrap is really good.

I enjoyed going to the Lava Lounge. As a solo traveller it was comfy to sit on a lounge outside just a stone's throw from the water's edge! Some restaurants feel awkward to sit at but this was casual and cool. Happy hour was great....More
