Best food on the island

We were staying at a nearby hotel but came for dinner at Mahamaya on 3 occasions. Every Wednesday and Saturday is fish night which was delicious but the food on the other nights is also excellent, the crispy calamari was a particular favourite of mine. The atmosphere is lovely and on some nights they have live music. Both the restaurant staff and staff from other places on the island perform and all are worth going to listen to. However, for us the absolute highlight was the desserts. White chocolate creme brûlée, sticky toffee pudding, chocolate brownie and Nutella cheese cake were obviously inputs from David, the British owner. We would highly recommend!

Nice views but poor food - go somewhere else

Southend-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Lovely view for a sunset but the drinks are really pricy so wouldn’t suggest going there on a budget. The food was rather bad and very overpriced. We had steak with dauphinoise potatoes and vegetables and the best bit were the veg. The steak was meant to be medium mine was good well done and my partners was medium well and the potatoes were just stoggy. They clearly didnt know what they were so would suggest they take them off the menu as an option and just get it right with other types of potato. It cost 225.000 for the steak which is nearly double what other items are on the menu but I’d say this was the worst item we could of picked. The chef should really be getting this right and although they came and asked how the meal was we had already finished it so was too late to change it. They also offered us no discount for how bad it was either so walked away very disappointed and wouldn’t recommend.
