Friendly staff and great food

great food and very friendly staff. We had grouper and a tuna steak for lunch. Both very well prepared, just how fish should be, not raw and not over cooked, just perfect! After we finished our lunch they gave us a shot of their home made flavoured rum (banana and vanilla) which was surprisingly... read more

First off the owner/bartender is one of the best and most hard working people I have ever seen. We often sat at the bar just to watch her work. She never stops and all the drinks are made fresh with NO MIX. The best piña colada I have ever drank. All fresh with fresh coconut. All the servers are great... More

Wine was very reasonable, starting at $5 a glass. W shared an appetizer platter for $20. It was a generous serving for the money. Aloha sits right on the beach only a few feet from the water with covered tablers on the deck and lounge chairs on the beach.

Such a fun place.. and the food was to perfect. I am a picky eater and a picky drinker yet my group and I came back here multiple times during our visit. The owner is intelligent, fit, friendly and welcoming. She remembered all of our drinks and it honestly felt like we were old timers every time we walked in.... More

I LOVE this place! The rum drinks are really good, and the food is excellent. The staff is so friendly. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Bring cash -- it will save you a good bit of money. They take credit cards, but if you pay with cash, one dollar equals one Euro.

We stopped for lunch and I was feeling a little "queasy" from lots of drinks the night before. I asked for a spicy Bloody Mary and Coco made the best ever!! We had some fish tartar and it was amazing!! All 3 of the staff that day were so focused on customer service and kept checking to make sure we... More

A cute little spot on Orient Bay. They are very friendly and welcoming. The food was fresh and delicious. The prices were mid-range, high for a beach restaurant but not high compared to other restaurants in the area. They did offer a 1 USD = 1 EUR if you were paying cash. For the American traveler this is a big... More

Have been visiting this bar/restarant evry year since it opened under Natalie's ownership and impossible as it may seem it gets better every year. Nat and her young team produce an ambience second to none. Welcome is fantastic and once you have asked for any special little thing it automaticaaly arrives every time you visit without asking! The drinks especially... More

This place is absolutely charming. Natalie, Coco & Fredric go above and beyond to make your visit delightful and memorable. The food is amazing, along with the presentation and selection and if you can't find a drink there you like, then you better quit drinking. We made two trips there and stayed all day. As soon as I'm able to... More

Had a wonderful time at Aloha... That we went back for a 2nd day. Nat, Coco, and Fredric were a blast. Chairs included a drink with purchase. The food and drinks were amazing! They had their own homemade rum too. If you like fruity drinks go with the Tutti Frutti or just tell Nat to make whatever she wants and... More
