We went here a bit exhausted after our flight to Puerto Rico but determined to taste the local ambiance before leaving the next day for the BVI. This bar and restaurant fitted the bill - we could relax at a table out front, enjoy a couple of drinks and enjoy the flatbread - bit like pizza but local twist. Staff... More

I went with my wife in a romantic dinner and was a great surprise! Very cozy place, maybe just to 20-25 persons but very nice decoration and beatiful setting. Because of this, the owner-chef welcomes you and personally is serving your table along with an excellent team. The food was great, good presentation and marvelous taste. It was our first... More

The same chef from the bistro (David) opened this wonderful new restaurant. It's a small cozy but very modern place. David gives an extra touch by greeting his customers and explaining the menu. The food was delicious and large portions! Most try the guava mojito 😋

It Is located inside the Acacia Boutique HoteI .The restaurant has a very small intimate dining area which includes live music. The food was a little expensive but spectacular. The food tastes are distinctive. It's not for every night consumption but for a special meal.We loved it.

Outstanding experience! Food and service were excellent. The chef welcome you at the entrance, explain you the menu and make you feel that you are not a customer but a guest at his table. The restaurant feel intimate, romantic and really exclusive (the restaurant seats around 31 people). The food is authentic and delicious without an outrageous high price tag.... More
