Food Scene
Rainforest Resturant in the centre of the town! Canopy bar for drinks then ask for a table on the Forest Deck (our fav) and prepare to be amazed with the food and service. Very special, well worth it.

Your local cafe - just walk out of resort, its on the Roundabout Shops. Rave about Curries /Pies but my fav is the Vietnamese salad for lunch. Grab a curry from the fridge for an easy dinner! Coffee is excellent too!
