“We got in a little late but not that late and we wanted to order dinner. Shouldn’t be a problem we thought, the restaurant was open. As it turns out, a restaurant needs to be a bit more than open to be able to order food. The chef, a tug boat of a man lumbered out, took a look at us, grumbled and went back into the kitchen. Apparently he acquiesced to our dinner desires, and wound up preparing us a delicious meal, going so far as to leave us with a plate of sliced mango as an after dinner treat. Now I want to be clear about something, the hotel CLEARLY stated that they serve breakfast, and the hours were given. The restaurant was supposed to open well before we woke up, so when Lachlan and I walked down to start ordering we were dismayed that things were inoperable. Walking back to our room we ran into the owner. “How are you boys? Going to get some breakfast are you?” “We were,” we replied, “but it turns out it’s not open.” “I’m sorry boys, I’ve got a good cook here, but he’s a bit of grump. To tell you the truth I’m selling the place, just need to keep it together for two more weeks and I am out from under it.” “We understand.” “Hey, you boys married? I’ve got a daughter your age.” Later we had breakfast and it was wonderful.”—Kyle von Hoetzendorff
