Hoe the good fortune to taken here by a friend & had the most delicious & unique item, salbutes. Came back the following day & had them again. My only regret is I didn't find this place earlier in my visit. Off the beaten path...a must try in San Pedro!!!

Cool place that cooks in a traditional oven - delicious conch fritters, and wonderful food with a friendly staff. Don't forget to check out the cool homemade sink in the bathroom.

Enjoyed a good meal in rustic surroundings but for a basic place it was very expensive for what it was - and wine is a silly price.

Nor had any of the five of us ever heard of... More

12 visitors and 11 loved their meals. I got the stew beef. Dirt floors and picnic tables. Most in the group liked that, others not so much. There were raves all around about the food.

I've dined here many times since first giving a try two years ago. Every meal has been consistently excellent and full of flavor. Reasonably priced and attentive service. This will always be my go-to restaurant for great food. I've had too many excellent dishes to list them all here, but it's worth pointing out the conch fritters, they are awesome!

We found this place by accident on our first night in San Pedro. The food was fabulous and the service was even better! We tried a number of different cocktails and they were all well done. Alberto and Farid gave us truly excellent service but also took a few minutes to chat. Must try the frozen key lime pie! Olive,... More

I absolutely loved this place! Highly recommended by the locals - they were not wrong! Excellent wine/drink list, and good service. Staff was friendly and trained well. Food was AMAZING. My friend had the blackened fish, I had grilled shrimp. So good!

A must do restaurant. Had a great atmosphere and delicious food. Would like to get back there someday for lunch and see them cooking on the traditional outside grill.
