We really enjoyed the show and the buffet had a huge selection of food! It was pouring the night that we went which made us a bit nervous, but the areas are completely covered and make for a perfect night.

Highly recommend for a day/night of cultural learning, good food and such great fun. Topped with an awesome cultural show. My husband and I were just in awe by how they told their story in dance and music.

This is your opportunity to experience the buffet of local food not found in any restaurants on the island. The music and dancing follows with a spectacular show on the water. It is a little pricey, but well worth going to see. Camilla & Doug

Apparently it's busy each night it's on. We went on a Saturday night only because it was the only night we could go.
