This is quite a cool place to go for a drink or some food - quite dark and atmospheric inside - no windows, red walls with big pictures on, mood lighting, and lots of black mosaic. The cocktails we had were great, but we were here for food mainly. We shared some croquettes to start, and they were possibly the... More

Had a great dinner out with a small group of couples during our stay on Payne's Bay Beach. The ambiance is charming and overall vibe of the place is pretty good. Service was typical of "island time" but that's what I'd expect in the Caribbean. Being vegetarians, my wife and I appreciated the selection and the lentil dish I had... More

This relatively small restaurant was pretty full when we arrived and not having a reservation we were offered seats at the long bar which wasn't an issue for us at all. The place was quite buzzy and upbeat. There was a good choice of cocktails that were served promptly. We chose chicken satay and chickens wontons to start and when... More
