“Food was good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2015

There was no menu and there were no prices and they don't take credit cards. It was a stressful meal for my husband - since we don't usually carry lots of cash when we travel... The lobster was tasty, but the restaurant is in a scary location that required an escort.

“Thumbs up.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2015

We went to this restaurant at the end of the holiday, but it was worth the wait. It was about 8/9pm and we was seated right on the coast so the atmosphere was nice with the sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks & moonlight reflecting in the sea. I ordered the curried shrimp which was soooooo good & the steamed fish was also top notch!! If you ask for directions its better to call it "fishermans beach" as thats what its better known by the locals

“Truly a shack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2015

You walk into what appears to be a Shanty-town, and there are no menus. You get to choose either shrimp, lobster, or fish. There are a couple plastic table and chairs on a dirt-floor patio, and it feels like you're really roughing it. The lobster had a jerk-barbeque sauce on it, and was pretty good. But the area is kind of unsavory and the shack was not exactly clean. Definitely off the beaten path and a local hang-out....probably wouldn't recommend to the average tourist.

“High - but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2015

It was expensive - $100 two people, but I enjoyed every bite! We were staying at Club Rui and it was adjacent.

“Suprizing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2014

looks are very deceiving. This place looks nothing like the food taste. I ate there twice in one day. The vibe can be a bit confusing,no menu posted.If you are kind of a paranoid individual,then you may want to go with a local,like your driver or tour guide. You in a real local hang out,and they can be a bit aggressive with wanting you to support then .There are about 4 or 5 little shops that sell beer. and they all want you to buy from them,for this is how they survive. I bought a beer for every single one,and view it like a block party..lol
