The food for myself, my wife and our triplets, ranked in the top five meals I have ever had!!! The soft shell crab with pork was absolutely superb. The presentation and combination of flavors would make Gordon Ramsey sit up and take notice. We had a window seat and the high surf was an incredible back drop to such a... More

We sat outside on the deck and watched the sunset and the divers going in and out through the swim out off the deck. Gorgeous sunset, casual atmosphere and EXCELLENT food. Calamari is a must. Highly recommend stopping here after your visit to the turtle farm. Very close by.

The Cracked Conch has a fabulous setting overlooking the ocean. While the restaurant itself opens at 5.30pm you can easily have a few drinks downstairs at their bar Macabuca beforehand to watch the sunset - it is the perfect location. The restaurant has a large patio area and once the sun sets they have underwater lights for the bay below... More

Our waiter was very friendly and the service was excellent. They have a very good wine list as stated by my wine snob hubby :) We had delicious appetizers - the... More

We gotta say this place was really good! The nice waitress recommended the tuna tartar, wonderful. The conch soup was very tasty as well. Lobster and the snapper were fresh and prepared perfectly. Great experience overall. The mac and cheese they served was amazing BTW

This is a wonderful location, literally on the lava-rock with 3 restaurants on site. We always use the outdoor section, and by choosing to go for dinner, can watch the scuba divers enter from the adjoining access, and see their high powered lights illuminate the reef. We had our favourite coconut shrimp dish. Amazing.

Liked..superb food; upscale; some local items which were a big attraction. And...excellent Mojitos. Our server, Abbe, made them. On one visit we had our drinks plus just appetizer plates to split amongst the three of us. We returned later for dinner with additional friends and asked for her again. Naturally, she made our mojitos! And we went for main course... More
