This is a quality gem and the owner, Lela, is so entertaining. Food and drinks are divine. You have to go here!! We went with 6 couples, escaping the Ocho Rios Sandals all inclusive craziness. It was a lovely dinner and the perfect food.

All around a terrible meal. Pasta was too thick, over cooked and the sauce tasted like chef boyardee. Bruschetta was not seasoned well. Apparently the owners were ill tonight so maybe the oversight of cooks was what was missing. We did like that the restaurant...More

We didn't see a set menu when we were there. But, we didn't find it over priced for the portion and quality. It was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere and owners!
