So nice to have an intimate restaurant right on premise. Small menu but items are thoughtfully prepared and packed with flavor. While you're waiting, enjoy some Ginger Carib beer...you can't go wrong!

We ate here most nights during our stay at Castara Retreats and loved every meal. The service from the friendly and accommodating staff was always exceptional and watching the magnificent sunsets and the humming birds was idyllic.
