Then after crossing an open porch we reached the dining hall.

The dining hall had a very cool wall – made with luggage boxes. The ceilings of the restaurant were high & we just loved it.

The Malibu ( coconut rum) flavor expressed itself well in the lowest layer. The body of the tiramisu was thick and nice but not the best I have ever had. Fresh mangoes were very good quality and tasted YUMM. Overall taste was very good. Rate it 4/5

Mango pickled grilled prawns with cucumber and onion slaw. Mango pickle was obviously made from raw mango and the quantity used in the grill was minimal.

That ensured that the prawn flavours and taste were full blown while allowing the pickle flavor to appear….. The prawns were just outstanding. They were one of the best I have had in a while. The juices in the prawn head were heavenly. The prawn meat was super soft and unbelievably YUMM. Rate the dish 4.95/5

The wait was worth every second. One of the finest desserts I have had in months. The ice cream was caramel based and hence bitter sweet, intense and excellent. The tart was soft and molten inside with nuts and the taste was a combo of sweet, salt and bitter. Mindblowing good. Loved it as it is, with the ice cream, with the peanut brittle and caramel ring…rate it 4.95/5
