Lobster!!

We had lobster tails at this place. They were HUGE!!! And they were absolutely delicious. Our meal came with a complimentary beverage and I tried their sangria which was delicious. Great service, reasonable prices. Loved it, will be back for sure.

My husband started with French onion soup that he said was excellent. I had a huge Caesar salad which was huge and tasted great. The lobster and... More

We wanted a very plain breakfast since we had been sick. We decided on a bagel 69mp with bacon 30mp and pancakes 80mp. Took a while to get our food. Waiter was attentive and the bagel was good.

Lobsters painted in the ceiling - Michael Jackson picture on the wall. Don't let that stop you from trying this place. Not a place to go if you want Mexican, but a great place for a good meal.

Centrally located, we stopped here for our first breakfast on Isla. Food was decent, large portions. Lots of fresh fruit with the waffles and crispy bacon. The cappuccino was pretty, too. Staff were attentive and friendly. Will return.

We stopped for breakfast one morning. We had a cappuccino, which was delicious. I had the french toast, which was really very good. My husband had a Croquet and he liked it. Service was great. Neat little café atmosphere. We would return.

Loved the crepes! Also had coup monsuir. I just know I spelled that wrong! Both were excellent and service was top notch! The older gentleman even held our hands walking down the steps to help us out.

We met a lady while walking through town our first morning here. She advised us to go for the french toast. We did and it was wonderful. Two large pieces of french toast and a large portion of ripe fresh fruit and crisp bacon were included.

We ate there last night. Good location, service was top notch and the food was very tasty. I had the rib eye steak and it was cooked to perfection, baked potato with butter/sour cream on the side, rice, vegetables and bread. Good size portions, not too small or too large. Price was reasonable and in line with surrounding restaurants. The... More
