Lively weekend spot if money is no object

This is a tough review to write. This was the most expensive meal we had after staying a week on the island. The difficult thing was the fact that it was the least amount of food too. It all tasted good. It's just so expensive. Since the portions are small, i.e. one slider that fits in the palm of... read more

The restaurant is on the corner with views of the water and fountains. We sat at a lovely table with two couches. We enjoyed drinks for a while before our food arrived and were just able to wrap up our vacation with a bow here. We ultimately order a tapa for four that was just delicious. It included their special... More

When I first took a look at the menu, I was underwhelmed and was expecting something pretty average. We chose this location because it was around 9:30pm and none of the other restaurants were serving food at that hour on a Monday night. I decided on the fish tacos and salad (which I don't see on their online menu). My... More

Just wanted to give another review of this place. The service is still slow about refilling water but the food was better. I tried another dish, the curry chicken skewer with cole slaw and salad. Tasty. Their happy hour is 20% off drinks only.

We approached the hostess about an open outdoor table one weeknight. Most of the patio was full and inside as well. We took that as a good sign! She grabbed menus for us and sat us. It took quite a while before we finally approached the bar and asked to order drinks, and then our waiter came to the table.... More

Good tapas. Decent wine. Nice location by the water at Camana Bay. A bit pricey. When I was there, there was a mix of patrons... some tourists, som local families, and a big after work crowd (lots of expats).

We liked this place. Located in Camana Bay. We took one of the buses (tiny mini buses that you just flag down vs about $20 each way, for a five minute ride, in a cab from the Ritz) for only 2CI or $2.50 it stops right in front, just a short walk to get to the water. While most of... More

Had a late dinner here and was pleasantly surprised. Fish tacos are the best around. I had a stuffed burger that was delicious. Sweet potato fries were excellent as well. Would be good for lunch or dinner.

Great location in Camana Bay with a view of the water. We just had drinks and tapas while enjoying the evening entertainment of a talented steel drum group playing in front of the restaurant. Check the Camana Bay website for schedule of events from Farmers Markets to entertainment. We were greeted and able to select our own table. The staff... More

Great service, great location in Camana bay center, great staff, food amazing! We had a few dishes, but the beef kabob/skewer was fantastic! It was raining that night, and we still had a perfect dinner al fresco!
