Still a very good choice 4 years after my first visit

Made it a point to go back to this establishment as I remember the great food and views from this "outdoor seating" only restaurant. Generous portions of very good Italian food, extremely casual and fabulous views of the Oyster Pond area.

Food was terrific - and what a surprise - little beach hut with exquisite food! This was right next to our villa on Oyster Pond. It is very easy to find. The service was also terrific.

Great Breakfast, dinner. Friendly, happy hour is great. Staff are awesome. Great chef. Great view of the beach.Too bad the view of the beach wasn't nice due to a lot of seaweed.

Picked out a nice live Lobster and beer. Great atmosphere of a tropical beach bar. Massive amounts of pelagic sargassum have bee washing up on the nearby beach but is far enough away it stink as much as directly on the beach.

Their view is outstanding, of Dawn Beach. The breakfast is very good. The egg sandwich is very American. Fish lunch very good and the Philly steak sandwich is a real plus. Yum.

Never tried this place during the day, (for all I know it could be worlds better), but by night the menu is oversized and full of subpar dishes. ATMOSPHERE: Absolutely delightful. Plenty of seating, but all with a good view of the gorgeous beach! Very airy and breezy, this restaurant just drew us in. And when it rains, they draw... More
