Asha welcomes you into his restaurant as if you're a guest in his home. The food is made with love and the location right over the sea is unbeatable. We've come back year after year - our restaurant home away from home.

Great food but be prepared to wait. Sit outside if you can. Eat Lionfish to help get rid of this invasive species. It's delicious.
