All the great restaurants are off the paved road, and this one is no exception. The food is well prepared, and presented. The atmosphere is rather rustic, with almost a log cabiny type feel. The drinks are strong.

We hadn't been to Dragon Fly in quite a few years, and I must say, it has improved with age. I can't recall a better piece of Mahi Mahi, so cooked to perfection. The staff is just as attentive and helpful as ever.

Delicious meal. Highlights were the black bean hummus and the fiery Thai beef. Easy to recommend and worth the walk.

We were pleasantly surprised by this little hide-a-way restaurant, we had read some reviews but were unprepared for its quiet beauty. It is a wonderful atmosphere and the service is fantastic. Truly the best Mojito I have ever had, really amazing, I just wish we were as impressed by the food. I had the pork. The portion was ridiculous, impossible... More
