Expensive and Mediocre

This place is in the perfect location with an amazing view. The food, however, is nothing special - especially for the price. There are quite a few other places nearby (Wil's for example) that crush this place. If, however, you decide to go then be sure to make a reservation. The waterfront... read more

...but, stick to the seafood. The fish, shrimp, etc. here is always excellent. Very fresh and nicely prepared, although on the pricey side. I had a lunch entrée of pasta and shrimp (6) which cost $30. I also had a "hamburger" that left a lot to be desired. I'll simply say this: when the name of the restaurant is "It... More

We saw this restaurant advertised in many pamphlets at our hotel and decided to give it a try. Be sure you call a head for a reservation! We happened to get lucky since it was just two of us but larger groups had to wait an hour minimum. Many of the specials listed also had fine print detailing many exclusions... More

I made a reservation for Valentines dinner. The table was reserved up front with a great view. The restaurant served complimentary champagne and a couple of sample bites. Very good professional service. The food was excellent, with good size portions and arrived hot.

You feel at home in this restaurant, unlike At Sea restaurant. The chef is much better. He deals with the food in a respectful natural way. Just a great fish on top of some pure vegetables and a delicate sauce. Simple and delightful. Try also the soups, you will love them. Great venue.

Want fish, go to Kite City. Rains Fish is a silly hype, small tasteless portions high prices for nothing out of the ordinary.

Wonderful location across from water. Upscale menu. Excellent service. Interesting daily specials from the sea. Pricey but worth it. We were there for a week and ate there twice.

This was my favorite restaurant meal on the island this trip. The service is great, the view outstanding, and the food and beverages top notch. They also sell fresh fish that is caught daily, so that you can take it with you to cook. Next visit we plan to do so.
