Pelican's nest does a great dinner. Their snapper and plantains are to die for. I wish we could have eaten here every night!

At the end of a pier over the water sits this restaurant. We first discovered this place for lunch. I ordered the grilled grouper sandwich. This was the best, freshest fish sandwich I have ever had. The piece of fish was such a good size, it hung off the roll on both sides. It was so good and reasonably priced... More

My wife and I had a nice lunch on pier. I had the fish sandwich which was great and my wife quite enjoyed the shrimp salad. Needless to say the view was awesome. The staff were very friendly and watching our waiter dance as Michael Jackson was playing was quite amusing.

This restaurant is located on wharf in front of Hyatt. Location was great but very disappointed with quality of food. For appetiser we had conch fritters. These were deep fried balls of overproceesed seafood. Didn't seem much more than something out of a packet you would buy in the frozen section of a supermarket. We also had Martins Platter which...

Outside table on the water for dinner watching an amazing sunset. Pretty extensive menu, very good food and large portions. Will most definitely eat there again on our next visit.

We went for dinner and enjoyed the opportunity to dine so close to the water. The location is the highlight. 2 dinners of mahi for the adults....overcooked and dry. Kids ordered cheeseburgers, one was charred, the other cooked right. Not spectacular, not terrible, just ok all around.

This restaurant is absolutely amazing and the views are stunning sunset or during the day it is amazing. I would recommend making reservations to have the corners for sunset views because that is truly where you want to sit and while you're eating you will see so many schools of fish swimming by which really gives you the Caribbean feel....

We had a great table on the water. The food was delicious and portions were large. Loved the atmosphere. Our waiter seemed to forgot we existed. He brought our main course and disappeared after that. We had to track him and ask for our bill. We then waited for another 20 minutes for him to finally bring us the bill... More

The restaurant is located right in the water and has great views. The back of the restaurant is more of a bar and looked like it could get a bit rowdy and fun. The restaurant itself sits over the water. The food was average. Cocktails were delicious. You'll need a reservation for dinner but you may be able to persuade... More
