Probably one of the most fun quick lunches I have had....as a restaurant owner you tend to get a bit fussy...if you like sand under your foot and a real island experience then you will enjoy this place....a bit like Subway but looking out to a lagoon ...plus its byo and the owner is a friendly fun lady !

Fob sandwich became my daily lunch, the best fresh food on the island. The service was fantastic. Will be back this march for another visit.

If you want a fresh fish sandwich made with fish caught the same day then make sure you head here. I ate mine and my sons and would happily have gone back for another..............
