I've had several very good meals here. Each time, by chance I have also met my island friends eating here. Great dinner of fresh seafood and after dinner drinks while. I strongly recommend making a reservation for dinner.

I wasn't impressed by this restaurant which comes very highly regarded. No menu, No problem. service was glacial. maybe 20-30 minutes between courses. they were very nice but I wasn't that impressed. small portions tasted very fishy.
