Seafood Restaurant

“Not one to miss! Go directly before sunset to enjoy the beautiful scenery and…a large flock of parrots that fly to the palm trees surrounding the restaurant. Early risers can also watch the parrots leave at dawn. You do not have to eat at the restaurant. Just need to be in the vicinity. It is a bit pricey but the food, view, parrots and service make it worthwhile. ”
