We had excellent snapper and it is a very nice setting. However, the service was very slow and largely indifferent. A fine place if you aren't in a hurry.

Authentic Island food. The Coconut rice and jerk chicken are Very good. The fired Whole snapper is also a must. A real nice change of pace. Will return. Kids love it as well.
