We went to a higher rated restaurant but the would give us the any attention to seat us for dinner, We walked across the street and found Canoa. What a wonderful experience. The manager and staff were excellent and seated us on the deck overlooking the marina. Try the Seafood soup and plantain (spelling ??) They were fabulous. It was... More

We went to Canoa for our wedding night dinner and were treated to a complimentary glass of proseco. The food was great and the night's entertainment was awesome.. She sang us our theme wedding song while we danced in the restaurant. Sitting on the deck over the harbour was great and able to feed the fish some of our bread... More

The servers and staff were very nice but the food is the star here. Small selection but we ate there twice and the food was outstanding. I recommend the pork chops.

Short staff and things took a long time. Food was good when it arrived. Very attentive to my daughter's allergies.

Had a really nice meal here. Snapper and grouper were our dinner selections. Didn't have reservations but you might need them during high season. The fried plantain with the ragu sauce for the appetizer was outstanding, I know what your thinking but you really ought to try this dish if you go here. It's big enough for a meal.

We went here on our first night of our honeymoon and couldn't have been more pleased! The food was delicious and the service was great. We sat outside on their dock, right on the water. The view was beautiful and we really enjoyed a quiet dinner together to kick off our honeymoon week. We tried the escargot in the puff... More

Went here with my mother in April, and loved it. We stayed at Princess Heights, so it was the perfect location for an easy dinner after a day on the beach. Loved it so much that we returned on our last night for our final dinner. Two must try items: the plantain stuffed with meat sauce (sounds weird, but it's... More

After a meeting ended late, we decided to try out Canoa and I was very happy that I did. It was raining and we decided to sit inside which turned out to be a great idea because the canopy outside is not built to handle the heavier down pours. The setting is a very intimate setting and the tables are... More
