“Good pasta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was possible the best place we ate in Frigate Bay - tasty pasta but the desserts not brilliant. Clams and spagetti were good

“Nice but not memorable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I really wanted to rate this higher, having visited before, but the night we were there was a complete shambles. We had pre-booked our table, but waited a very long time before we were seated. Then another long wait for menus and yet another long wait for our meals. The restaurant was not full but we noticed the owner shouting at the waitresses to clear tables, seat customers and take orders. The previous night we couldn't get a table as it was really full with customers waiting.The owner looked as if she was really tired and didn't really want to be there. The food was okay but not memorable. This was a convenient stroll from our hotel.

“Three hour dinner but tasty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Have plenty of time and you will enjoy the food. The staff was great but you're on island time. We especially liked Ild and her staff.
