We were in awe from the moment we saw it. We had the lobster lunch which was delish! I don't enjoy rice but finished every bite of theirs. Cooks/bar tenders were hilarious. Can't wait to go back again. Definite must do when in Jamaica.

The ride out there would be about an hour and half or so. They have standard bar menu, mix drinks and beer food as well. If you make the journey you will it be disappointed.
