Off season so limited menu. But the broiled shrimp were just the ticket. Service was great and friendly…and, well just nice. I got a custom concoted rum punch based on my description….just right. Pricey for what yo get to eat…but worth it. Great views and serene,

We were driving by on Tuesday and I said we should stop by and see about dinner on Wed. We were cheerfully greeted by the chef at the bar when we walked in. He told... More

We drove from Governor's Harbor for a Sunday afternoon 1:30 pm lunch. We called ahead because there were 7 of us. The owners are actually the chef's, and the servers. The food was absolutely delicious. The Back Porch had a nice view of the water. It is small and charming. The best part is the Back Porch has a nice... More

We were treated like guests in the owner's house! The food was delicious--most of us had the salad of the day, which included watermelon and pineapple--and, he customized it to everyone's needs! Beautiful views and great atmosphere!

Frances is a great chef. He stopped being a cook years ago. The fish was so fresh, since he caught it just that day! The guava mango crepes were fantastic, and too fancy to be called just dessert pancakes! Great little store inside the serving area as well, and sells the hard to find "neer soap". It's made from a... More

I could eat their crab claws every night! Cutest couple owns it! I would call a day ahead with your party size because they serve all fresh caught island fish.

Francis treats you like you are dining in his house. He catches most of his fresh seafood himself. He takes delight in you dining with him and enjoying the food. Go before sunset to take in the pretty views - boats, harbor.

We went there for dinner tonight instead of our hotel restaurant. The welcome was warm and friendly. The whole family is there. We had a nice high table with a romantic view on the small -at that time quiet - harbour. After a short and very friendly chat with the owners, we got our drinks and ordered our food. They... More
