One of the many restaurants on the Lake, this one offers a surprisingly clean and pleasant outlook with a welcome, albeit minimal, breeze to combat the heat. The meals are quite good and they serve ice cold beer, something lacking in most other places we have dined in. Owned by the same people that run Inle Princess Resort, this is a welcome lunch option.
