Like all my reviews of restaurants I like to visit them more than once when I write a review so there is no "one-time" fluke reviews. So this was my third time at Canoa while staying nearby doing a little photography work. We had a large group of friends with us, so we knew things would take time, but that... More

Dined here with a group while attending a seminar. We were seated on the deck overlooking the docks and the harbor. Service was a little slow, but in fairness to the staff, we were a group of 13. Food was good and the wine list was very nice.

We are here the night I proposed to my husband a few years back so I have a soft spot for this place. Went back with my parents - good food, fair service and a nice atmosphere.

Enjoyed our dinner here very much. Wine was good. Service was excellent. We sat outside on the side balcony, I might sit on the front balcony next time.

This was by far the best meal we had during our week-long stay on the island. The waitstaff was very friendly and enthusiastic and the food was fabulous. Very good wine selection as well. Pricey, but worth it.

The restaurant is situated right on the marina in Oyster Pond - very nice views over the water. Service is attentive and the staff are friendly and courteous - but everything moves on island time. Be prepared to be relaxed. The wines by the glass are of good quality. Prices are similar to Go Fish across the street. But the... More

Conch chowder, coconut shrimp both excellent. .liked that curry both for taste a.nd quantity. While snapper was ok but small. Steak was ok. Service was friendly but a little slow. Bartender tried to pass a lesser brand for blue sapphire gin. Allowed us to bring our own wine, but charged a $50 corkage fee. No carafe available for breathing. Nice... More

My wife and I had dinner here while attending a meeting at a nearby hotel. The accommodated our last minute reservation with no problem. The food was tasty and the setting was very nice except no ocean view. I enjoyed the stuffed plantain. Would go again.

My husband and I took a trip to the Island with another couple. We stayed for a little over a week and spent our nights eating dinner at each of the highly recommended restaurants on the Island. We all agreed that this restaurant was by far the best meal that we had while visiting the island. The portions are nice... More
