We had a pleasant evening with good food and enjoyed the authenticity of the place! Owners don't speak Dutch and that's very seldom on the island. Creole food from Columbian couple, top!

This place is way out of the way on a dirt road in a remote part of town. We ate here one rainy night. The woman who runs it speaks no English only Spanish but no worries. I had Red Snapper cooked with garlic and butter. It was very tasty. My wife had pork chops which were ok but very... More

There were 6 of us eating and we all had dinners that were excellent!! The owners didn't speak English but that just added to the homes style atmosphere. Didn't have any problems ordering though. We were on the island for a week and only went there 3 times. Great food, great prices and great portions. Thanks Steve

It's been a year since we were here last, not much has changed - not that it needed to. Great, friendly service and wholesome food. Everything we ordered was good, and prices are reasonable. Hope to come back next trip!

When we heard that Carlos's (our excellent dive master) family ran a restaurant and that another dive group RAVED about it, we knew we had to try it. Carlos wanted to pick us up and drive us there, but we assured him we could make the walk (about 25 min) and it was well worth it!. Amazingly extensive menu. I... More

We have been going here for 10 years and have never had a bad meal or service. We usually get local caught fish, grilled with garlic and butter, but the chicken dishes are also very good. The homemade Flan is the best we have ever had. Family owed and staffed you can sit out front at one of two tables... More

Carlos (one of our Divemasters) turned us on to this place run by his parents. Delicious, well-prepared food in a quaint local spot just a few blocks east of downtown. In a hurry on Saturday to catch a plane? The burgers are out of this world and come up quickly.

Enjoyed a nice dinner in this friendly, family operated restaurant. Had a variety of dishes - beef, chicken, very creamy curried pasta (very different and delicious) and fresh local fish.

Carlos was not only an entertaining and knowledgeable dive master but also a wonderful guide above water. He took us to Mi Banana in his own vehicle, led the way for the rest following and served as our private... More
