We went there due to a recommendation from our apartment host. We are both vegetarians and he promised us more than one option on the menu. And this was true. To our surprise we had a choice of several vegetarian options which were all really delicious. The portions were also really big that I could not even finish my dinner. Our waitress Alli was a star. She was really friendly and supported with recommendations. I always think it weird when staff doesn’t know what they are serving. But Alli knew everything. I can only recommend going there, especially if you are a mixed group with veggie’s and normals.

We loved our dinner at this place. We had no reservation but were treated as most welcome guests and very quickly got a nice table outside. The personnel was most attentive and friendly and we greatly enjoyed the delicious meal. Greatly recommended the Picanha steak!

This was our last meal on the island. Wish we had eaten there sooner in our visit. The staff were attentive and super nice. We had the veggie pad Thai salad, French onion soup, seafood medley, mahi mahi and picanha. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly. Definitely make reservations while on the island, you will not be disappointed.
