Had for lunch and dinner. Great food, great staff. My rare yellowfin grilled tuna was excellent and everyone's meal was great. My wife raved about the corn fritters too! Highly recommend for a great lunch or dinner!

Ate here for the first time last night and I was deliciously surprise of the quality and quantity of the food. Amazing escargot, great shrimp scampi, and the chicken marsala was tender and full of flavor. The owner Frank was very accommodating and pleasant. Great local place not too many people know about, and they are definitely missing out!!! YOU... More

Very nice atmosphere the bartender very attentive. She had the chef make a special dish for me that wasn't on the menu that night. The mussels were out of this world. And my husband loved his meal also. And the owner even came out and asked how was everything. Wonderful evening.

Maybe if the pool was open we would have enjoyed it better but the restaurant itself is outdated. Food was ok, we had soup & sandwich. Bar area looked nice.

Great burgers, wraps,and fish! Staff is friendly and the cook is fantastic. I love finding little restaurants hidden away.Tiki bar was good, and right on the beach, easy access to the beach right from the restaurant. Recommended for lunch and a early dinner type restaurant. Hooked to a resort,so its easy to find. Will go back

A little hidden gem! Friendly staff, great service, small and quaint. We ordered the escargot appetizer for starters and wow, the best ever. Even my husband who would never try escargot, thought it was amazing! Out of our 4 night stay, we actually ate there twice because the food was so good. The clam scampi was delicious, with an abundance... More

The restaurant and bar were very quaint. there was a separate lunch and dinner menu. Service was great, prices were good and the food was great, the best we could find in the Coco Beach area. The shrimp scampi and the seafood entries were great. The outdoor Tiki bar was a real plus.
