“nice view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Breakfast at Mr. Busby's was good. Most of the staff is really nice and attentive. It is right on Dawn beach with a nice view and $1 beer for happy hour. What more can you ask for?

“I have eaten here twice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I have eaten here twice and have had good food overall. Breakfast at Mr. Busby's is good. They have a nice offering for everyone and their Johnny Cakes are delicious. Marc is a great waiter who magically appears with coffee right when you need it.
Daniel's is their name when they are open for dinner. It is more than a little strange that the same restaurant has different names but it works for them. This is a very popular place for dinner so you can expect a wait if you arrive late. The food was good, but not great. Their conch stew was chewy which is not what conch is supposed to be but their pasta dishes were very good.
We walked over the rocks from the Westin but got a taxi ride back. I did not want to try the rocks in the dark. The grocery store nearby is a nice way to pick up food to take back to your room. They also have a selection of Cuban cigars.

“Taste by the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Busby's by day, Danie's by night, whichever it was was a great meal and a nice time. About the same price as you'll pay at "fancier" places, but a much more relaxed, personalized atmosphere. Grilled lobster was great, and a particular highlight was the lobster bisquue, which we were not expecting to be so tasty. another nice thing was a special spicy grilled calamari, which was quite original. Go for a walk on the beach afterwards!

“Great meals.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

this restaurant had a great selection of seafood and terrific steak on its menu. There were also daily chef specials available. There is a two for one happy hour with fantastic drinks. The seating is all open air and facing the ocean.This restaurant did not need a reservation although if a large group I would recommend you make one as it is not a large place. The beach in front is also a great place to spend an afternoon. Dress is casual and takeout is available. There is a great pizza place attached to the back for takeout as well.
