Just up the road from Holetown a great little unpretentious eating place, serving a selection of fish dishes and some wild deserts - seacat sensation & seacat surprise when we visited. Can be busy so you may wish to make a booking. My mahi mahi...More

It serves fresh, tasty and down-to-earth local seafood mainly cooked...More
