We are locals and tried this place for lunch on a Sunday. The personnel could have been warmer initially, but eventually warmed up. We were in a rush, so we ordered take out. The food was excellently presented, even for takeout, was very tasty, abundant and very reasonably priced. Sunday lunch...here we come....

If you are a foodie like me and looking for authentic Creole food, this isn't a place. The food in the restaurant is rather plain and very average whereas the price isn't too chip (consider the taxi to be taken if you are at the resort). The service is very good though.

The food was served with salad, plantain, rice and ground provisions. Both the shrimp and ribs were very tasty and we plan to visit again. The service was quick and the staff... More

Drinks were cheap. My favorite dish was the lambi, which had great flavor. The snapper dish was a little disappointing. Each entree came with a huge load of... More
