I was served the best fish sandwich I have ever eaten which was only topped by the coconut "bomb" with homemade coconut ice cream. We have gone back every year since. Last year we stayed with Porter and Haidee at the Twighlight Zone... More

This is one of my favorite hangouts, not just in the Caribbean, but of all time. The food is excellent, and if you're fortunate enough to enjoy an extended stay, the hardest decision you'll have is which meal to have for a second time. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is perfect for a Caribbean restaurant. Porter, Haidee, Apol... More

I had a hard time picking which meal I wanted to eat again because they were all so good. The It is the best place to eat on the island. The variety of drinks available could suit everyone's taste. It was a warm, welcoming and fun place to eat and hang out.
