“Can't go wrong here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We enjoyed the lunches so much, we ate here 3 times during our one week stay. The shrimp vera cruz is delicious as are the tacos and the curry coconut chicken salad.

We love this place... Outdoors and tropical, very reasonable prices... Had the seared tuna and the shrimp tacos which were out of this world. Best food on the island so far!

“Only Restaurant We Visited Twice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

If you like to sit outside and not on the beach then this is the place. It's located in Mongoose Junction Shopping area so you can browse the shops or enjoy a drink while waiting for your meal.

My daughter ordered the chicken philly both times we ate there and my husband loved the shrimp vera cruz and the French Country Turnover. The Burrito that Ate Cruz Bay was amazing and according to the kids the Pig was delicious too.

They have a big menu and I'm sure you'll find something you'll absolutely love.

“Great food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Ate there last night. I had the blacken mahi and it was very good. It has limited seating but if you are tired of spending $35-$40 for a main course, try this place out.
