We were staying at Coral Beach and didn't feel like calling a cab, catching a bus, or cooking. So we went to what we heard was an award winning restaurant. The positives: Very convenient as we were staying there anyway Beautiful weather for outside dining Reasonable prices Friendly staff The negatives: Cash only - we have stayed at Coral Beach... More

This casual beach bar is not fancy, but the food is excellent and the staff couldn't be more friendly. Fresh-caught snapper was the special the night we dropped by. We've never had better cole slaw or fried plantains, the wine is poured generously, and the prices are very reasonable.

Gwen and Colleen are the servers/bartenders and they are extremely pleasant and personable! Also, if you order a cocktail...they will not short you on the alcohol so don't order a double!! Their...

We were staying at the Coral Beach Condos that are part of the complex that houses this restaurant. We did not really contemplate using this place as an actual restaurant because it just seemed to be like the pool bar attached to our pool. However, after seeing a lot of the island and eating at other places, we realized that... More
