Wow what an experience and we wereŽnt even trying!! This restaurant is a must to visit. The decor is incredible with running water flowing over huge glass screens and fire dishes with flames leaping high. The seating is staggered on various levels and up on the top is a small dance floor, cos thats where the surprise comes in. WeŽd booked a table for 9pmish and had a good table quite near the dance floor, without realising there would be music. The food was great.... a mixture of Creole American , Brazilian with an added something I cant quite put my finger on. By 10.30pm we were finishing off our coffee and were suddenly aware of tables being cordoned off and chanpagne buckets and flutes placed on cleared tables. Queues were forming at the door so we stayed put! Then the entertainment started. Two huge , and I mean HUGE, bongo drums appeared from the stagefloor and playing them was an equally huge black guy stripped to the waist and glistening with whatever as he pounded away on the drums as an accompaniment to throbbing disco music.

Favorite Dish: The speciallity of the house was the Fire Pit....a selection of meats cooked on huge skewers over an open fire pit. These are brought round to the table and you can have as much as you want as they carve the meat onto your plate...and they keep coming back! Believe me after the seventh type of meat we were ready to become vegetarians!
