Good food, good vibes.

Get the fried edamame and the fish tacos! Oh and definitely try the homemade ice cream! We are here for a week and have eaten here twice already and will probably go back before we leave.

Wound up eating here twice during our stay in St Croix because many places were closed for the "slow season". Food was very good, with interesting preparation and excellent quality. The crowd ranged from college girls doing shots to older couples. Definitely worth a try if you're in the area.

Great food on two occasions and a blast to hang and drink here too. Had the Cubano and wife and kids had the meatloaf. What great portions! If your on the northshore its close. We will be back for sure next year

Food was decent but portions sizes were small and prices a little expensive. The macaroni and cheeses is a bit spicy. The Asian salad was good . I picked up so I can only comment on the man who handled my transaction. His customer service was average.

Great spot for casual dining. Very rustic and relaxing. The food was very good - it was recommended and didn't disappoint. Highly recommend.

I've been here several times, and I'm always surprised that a place that looks like a hole in the wall can serve up such interesting and innovative cuisine. There is a nice Caribbean vibe here too....they usually have live music in the patio. I'd highly recommend it.

This place is a nice little place right on the ocean. I was suprised by how good the food was. They have a great regular menu with many daily specials. The fried cheese appetizer was so good. This is one place you don't want to skip for a nice lunch.

Best blackened fish tacos on the island! The menu is creative and the flavors local. I asked for a rum drink that wasn't sweet. Our server recommend ginger beer, dark rum and bitters - awesome!

This off-the-beaten path restaurant is worth the drive. I had the baked brie with mango chutney for the appetizer. Their soft-shelled fish tacos with mango coleslaw is a must! Great friendly service, too.

This place is one of those hole in the wall types. The food though, AMAZING!!! So much so that we ordered to go order after our lunch there. We had clam chowder and fish tacos. Wow...I have never eaten anything like that...Amazing and unexpected flavors, very generous portions. Their menu is one of the kind. I am devastated by realization... More
