We ate here on a Sunday night, tonight in fact. The restaurant is sunny, colorful and best of all CLEAN! There are a lot of windows and many tables face the ocean, bonus.
The fresh salad was excellent. It was light and the dressing had a sweet/tang balance. The boom shrimp appetizer was crisped well, not overly breaded. The seasoning was delicious. It was served with a couple of plantains cooked to perfection which resulted in a second full order of plantains being ordered.
Our dinner selections were the coconut curry bowl with wild mushrooms and the kaya mahi mahi fish and chips. The curry bowl arrived along with an enticing aroma of curry, coconut milk and lemongrass. The flavors did not dissapoint and each bite was as bright as the previous. In addition, the vegetables in the bowl were fresh, nothing canned here. I ended up bringing home almost 3/4 of the bowl, likely due to the fact that I ate almost the entire order of plantains prior....
Again, the breaded fish was cooked perfectly - crispy and light. It was served with homemade french fries and a remoulade with a little kick to it.
Key lime pie was great. It was tart and the meringue was tall and fluffy. The polenta chocolate cake was even better - smooth, rich and flavorful.
The staff was very attentive and someone that appeared to be the owner brought my daughter over a cookie as a gift when we left.
The menu was large enough but not out of control letting the chefs really shine with their cooking.
Great night :)
