Visited this restaurant with two friends for dinner. Service was good and they fit us in pretty last minute which was great. Caesar salad with the yoghurt dressing to start was tasty but mains were average (though generous portions!) and overall, I thought the food was overpriced.

Our family ate at Black Sheep this weekend. I will say, everyone, except for myself, did enjoy their dinner, Pork Chop, Black Drum, and Linguini. I had the special of the night, the Seafood Risotto. I had asked the waitress about how much seafood. She told me it was a large piece for Black Drum, 2 ocean scallops, and shrimp.... More

Our meal was excellent. Flavor was top notch, especially the crab, and was thoroughly surprised. The restaurant is in an unassuming strip mall and we drove by it twice. However the effort was well worth it. I would not hesitate to return!!! Be warned however: the portions are large. I'd love to see them try a tasting menu as I... More

In a touristy town like Port A, there are plenty of places to eat. We were very much surprised by this small restaurant. Atmosphere was inviting, food was superb, service was great. Wine list was also excellent. My wife left her jacket there and we returned home the next morning. Dianza FedEx'd the jacket to us after we notified them... More

When I want a great meal on the Island I go to a few places and this is one of them. The food is prepared perfectly and the service is unbeatable.

Stopped in on Father's Day for brunch. The menu was pared down but delicious. The broccoli and cheddar soup was delicious. Kids menu is available. Food takes some time to come out so come if you have a leisurely pace. Closes at two, but saw them turn people away at 1:20, so arrive early. Best if you have reservations to... More

We've eaten here several times and it's been excellent each time. A tad pricey, but they deliver on quality and quantity. The pork chops are excellent - huge, tender, juicy, and flavorful. The Sunday brunch is better than average. They offer plenty of options and also have a la carte items.
