I was searching for a good seafood restaurant on the island and the only thing I could find were burger & fry joints. I came across this hidden gem. It is located in a tiny strip mall but don't let that deter you from entering. The inside is decorated with a lovely tropical theme and everyone seems eager to please.... More

The Snail Onglet here is fantastic. I also enjoy their Texas Fondue with Tortilla Chips. Dragonfly is a wonderful experience but I'm really hoping they add some servers soon. Consistently understaffed has been my observation.

Excellent food! Fun atmosphere. Decent service, i would say order a few tapas for your meal because it will be too hard to choose!

We live here on The Island, and this is one of our very favorite places to eat regularly! Great staff, great food, great atmosphere. You must try the Potato Puffs, but absolutely everything on the menu is EXCELLENT!

This is a cool place. Funky decor, offbeat art and world beat music are the backdrop for the culinary artistry on your plate. The menu offers many international selections. The cannelloni and shrimp featured crisp vegetables wrapped in two blankets of tender cannelloni, smothered in a cognac-infused cream sauce and topped with shrimp and mussels. Excellent!

I did enjoy their tacos but I've had better. However their drinks are awesome. I probably would just go for their drinks.

I had the special ~ Grilled mahi with grilled shrimp in a creamy white wine sauce ~ my husband had oso buco (maybe spelled wrong?) ~ for our appetizer we had clams (also... More

The goat cheese ravioli was amazing! I wish there was more to the dish but it is a tapa after all. Our waitress was pretty good even though she switched up our orders twice. The beer glasses seem really small. The shrimp cocktail dish is REALLY spicy!! Fun decor with the little marionette dolls and such.

I don't feel I can write a normal, specific review of this place given that we love it and go to it so much so I'll keep it pretty general. We have been coming here for years and go at least once a month or so. We've never had a bad meal or experience, ever. There is an array of... More
