The food was very good here. It is a little above average price but nothing extortionate. There is a view of the inlet to the harbour itself with some of the fortifications to the right. The staff are nice enough - not in a hurry...More

Excellent Friday night seafood buffet - fantastic value. Many different choices, we took seafood combo with prawn, fish and mussels and loads of sides. $17.50 per person. Lovely old building, lots of outside seating. Can be very very busy. Great atmosphere, lots of locals.

Food is ok and it's a nice place to sit for lunch, but service is very slow. A drink, menus and order taken promptly but food was slow to arrive. Still it's the. Caribbean!

Randomly picked this restaurant to eat lunch at 2:30. The burger and fish and chips were really good. Prices were decent as well. There are views of the boats when you eat outside.
