The food was ok. Nothing to brag about. They serve 4 different kinds of fish. Fritters are like pita bread-very little flavor. Only open Wed.-Sun. 11-6/10-10pm. Or when they sellout. It's a walk up place and you sit on picnic tables but the view is very nice during sunset. Off the main road heading toward the Turtle Farm. Hidden behind... More

After traveling all day we wanted something simple. Just happened to find this little place on the water. They have a full menu of fresh fish. Service is very friendly. If you want alcohol feel free to bring it with you. Portions are large and prepared for each order. Don't miss this gem!

It is very local food, I have to say that it is tasty, good prices, generous portions, but definitely not my type of food, very very heavy (too much oil) so after I ate there I got heartburn. Sorry, not for me.

Had the full red snapper and it was wonderful. Dish came with rice, fritter, and sweat dessert on one plate. Outdoor under almond tree. Great view of sea. Menu is only fish.

My favorite meal on the island - fried the fish just like I wanted it, plain - so I could taste the fish ! Service with a smile and joke. Watch the locals do their version of "a drive thru" but not selling fast food, selling good fresh fish ! Would love to visit again.

Can't miss for lunch to grab and go sit by the water. Best lunch stop for us by far after renting bikes and making the West Bay loop. Beautiful beachside view across the street.

Heritage Kitchen is located right off the Yellow/Light Green bus line past the Fosters. They are not open Sunday through Tuesday and are only open until 6pm Wednesday and Thursday (9pm on Friday-Saturday I think?). The food is classic island fish shack: 4 fish choices cooked 4 or 5 different styles. All amazingly fresh with ocean views from picnic tables.... More

The fresh catch was ok but pricey. Picky eaters should not try the chicken tenders. It was like eating roadside food. The view was great and the atmosphere colorful.

If you want local food that's reasonably priced with not a lot of extras, this is the place. Right at the end of Boggy sand road, this hidden gem is a local favorite with great food and no frills. Love it, would go back in a heartbeat.
