Great stop on south side of island

A little Rasta bar, Great place for a fresh mojito, guacamole and fish tacos. My husband really loved the fish tacos which had big pieces or fillets of local well seasoned fish. I thought the guac was excellent. I just wish the owner would clean and update the grounds a little more but there was a... read more

We stopped in for a drink and lunch, and couldn't get service to save our souls. Apparently they are understaffed, but we won't give it another try.

The Joint is a nice place with great music, food and drinks. My favorite ate the nachos. The Joint is very laid back and a relaxing place.

Very cute roadside stop with a beautiful sea view through the trees. Guacamole was fresh and delicious and beers were cold and cheap.

When we go to the Island we always have to hit the joint once a day for a few beers. There is always good music and the beer is cold. For the people who complain about exchange rates gets some pesos would you like to keep track of that for every check. Plus they got a cool dog there named... More

All I have to say to most of the other reviewers... You are on an Island. You are on Island Time. If you don't know what that is, you don't belong and can't be one to judge. That's the perk of a small island isn't it? The slow pace, no rush, hassle free lifestyle. Please remember that at most places... More

The service is slow and waiters never come around to check up. Then they expect a 15% tip. Exchange rate is 10 to 1 American! The owner is a nice lady from Canada but when she's not around they could care less if they serve you or not. The owner Charlene also owns El Patio. Same kind of service there... More
