My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on a rainy day with our 8, 7 & 3 yr old girls. Food was outstanding and the service was excellent! Will be back again for sure!

“Gracious hospitality.....outstanding food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

My husband and I chose to eat here during our vacation on ami. Some local shop owners recommended it and we looked at the reviews on tripadvisor. We had a reservation, was greeted nicely.by the hostess and our server was excellent. The food was very good. We eat out a lot and are very particular...this doesn't deserve the bad reviews from what we experienced. The server even offered recommendations at our request. This was one of two of our favorite restaurants while we were visiting. The appetizer of fish tacos was wonderfully done. Tender...perfect. Our entries were both very flavorful....we are glad for the memorable experience.

“Bad reviews are hard to believe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We have eaten here numerous times and have always had excellent food and great service both inside and on the veranda. We have had to wait for a table at times; but the bar provided us with adequate (LOL) libations to keep us "happy". It is somewhat pricey (between $$$ and $$$$); but the food is delicious.
