We had a great meal, my 13 year old had the grilled octopus and loved it! I had the grilled lobster... Amazing and the hubby got whole red snapper! Everything was delicious, the margaritas are large and strong! Super friendly staff and owner/manager. It was the most expensive dinner we had on the Island, but it was worth it!
