Nice place

It's really nice and a cozy atmosphere, good food but a bit pricy compared to other places. Great location on the beach, free wifi and you can leave your luggage there for the day if you're waiting for your check in or a boat etc.

Nice location, but the food was only ok. As I said in the title, don't believe the hype. You'll know what I mean if you stand outside the restaurant.

Best taste value is their grilled seafood special platter(ylo fin tuna), served on a sizzling iron pan, w/crisply sauteed veggies, Book before noon to save 10%.

Nice food, nice views, nice owners and staff, wifi, what more can a traveller want? Two extremely large chairs and a table to dine on? They got it! Books to read? They got um! Bean bags to revolver on? They got um, they also got any information you may need about Port Barton!

People might not fully understand why at this place the food are expensive.. There is a lot of restaurants that they are free to go and try there meal with very cheap offer and value for money..

Food in Jambalaya was great, but still bit over priced. Staff was nice and friendly. Smoking was not allowed in eating area, they had separate smoking are, which was just next to tables, so it did not make any sense. Also all those quote posters all over in walls was ridicilous. Did not made the restaurant any better. It was... More
