Wow....we enjoyed the best rock lobster that we've ever experienced. The food was outstanding and the waitstaff and management were outstanding. No doubt you would enjoy this establishment. It's also very convenient to the cruiseport.

We had a quick lunch here of chicken wraps. The food was okay and it was nice sitting on the balcony people watching while eating and having a cold drink. I would not recommend using the toilets here, it was filthy.

Hemingway's is upstairs across the street from the duty free zone, and is very conveniently located. The open air balcony has a nice view down the street. The food is excellent. Full menu with great coffee. Friendly staff. Amazing art work sets the tone.

Far from it! There's a set of very steep, long wooden steps which lead to the restaurant off the road. Very tricky.
