Went here for lunch and the burgers were very good. Good friendly service. The real thing is that it was the least expensive meal we had on the entire trip. what's no to like?

If you want a steak that is HUGE enough to have some leftover for lunch, this is the place to go. It's not the greatest atmosphere, and there isn't much else worthwhile on the menu, but the steaks are worth the visit. Try the garlic sauce, just don't plan on any close talking w/ anyone for a day or too!

We started with their appetizer special -- ribeye quesadilla - DELICIOUS! My husband had their grill seafood platter which was perfection and I had a Greek Salad with their homemade balsalmic dressing. The salad was huge salad (we split it) and the dressing is the absolute best I have ever had.

Made this our first "real" meal on the island this year and it was just as good as we remembered from last year. Seafood Alfredo and Caribbean Chicken (ham, swiss cheese sause and pineapple), which were delicious and huge portions (took half back to our condo to enjoy the next night). We saved room for the Banana Xango, which was... More

We almost forget to seek out this restaurant. It is tucked away up on the hill. We weren't even sure it was open this year. But a walk up the stone steps found us enjoying a quiet lunch. Both the food and service are very good. With fans running and a view over the rooftops out to the bay, it... More

I am not a seafood lover so Caribbean travel is always interesting when it comes to food. We pick a good place for my wife for seafood and me to have something. We want for her birthday dinner and we were pumped to have a server from back home in New England. She suggested the steak as the owners are... More

Went with a group of 7 for dinner. Good selection on menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Dessert was delicious not to mention the pain killers! All outdoor seating.

Came here October 28th with my sister and our spouses. The food and service was great with great recommendations from the server for the ribeye, seafood sampler, and mahè. This is a good choice.

Great food! Local options- loved the fried plantains and my pina colada. We especially loved the casual ambiance, nice outdoor seating on a deck under the trees, great view of the Bay. Try to be there for sunset. All the food in St John is expensive, but these prices were totally reasonable, especially for the size/quality of the meal.
