This is a great spot to go and the food is excellent! We came here a couple of times in Feb of 2014 when we were staying at Oyster Bay Beach Resort, so it was very convenient. I would suggest to those staying elsewhere, to make the trip it to Canoa and try this great restaurant.

Yummy- it's a must get. The lovely little place was a bit slow with service, but the food was fantastic and the view was lovely at sunset.

We were on foot and decided to try Canoa based on reviews we read on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! We tried the plantain appetizer and thought it was very yummy, almost like eggplant parm but a little sweeter. I had the stuffed snapper, and my husband had the Mahi el Greco. We shared a slice of cheesecake, and it... More

One of the best meals we ate. Food was very good and had a decent selection on the menu. Tables sit out on the dock. I would recommend to others and we already did. .

Great presentation but the seasoning and taste along with the ambiance on the marina, makes it the best spot in Oyster Bay hands down!

We had just one dinner at Conoa during our week at a vila on Dawn Beach. We had certainly planned on returning but we just ran out of time. Definitely try the chef's signature appetizer of plantain with meat, cheese and tomato sauce. It is absolutely delicious. We were dining with 2 girls age 11 and 16 and everyone really... More

This place was awesome. Our favorite meal of the trip. Ambiance was good and the owner was cooking the night we were there. Small and intimate setting with tables on the dock outside. The food and service was outstanding.

We loved Canoa! The food is excellent and the service is fun and friendly. The Plantain Canoa is incredible! A strange combination, but it creates a perfect mix of savory and sweet. Order it! We had several of the fish entrees during our visit and each one was excellent. The portions are generous and fresh. Save room for dessert, they're... More
