All I am going say is you've got to go! Coconut Rundown and a Hummingbird was the best combination! My husband had the Curry Chicken and he was happy!

There seems to be no management as I observed as 6 chefs were talking and not working. Our server kept on making excuses, poor gal as she tried to keep us on... More

We were after the lobster and it was on the mark ! Can you say lobster overload ? I had 4 lobster tails that were absolutely delicious. We ordered the... More

The food here is wonderful (especially the fried shrimp)! But be prepared to pay a hefty price for a small portion. It is on the beach so is quite lovely.
