We stopped here for a view of the beautiful scenery. We were here during the day and it was breathtaking. There were a few vendors selling their wares. We were here for the view and did not eat at the restaurant.

We were taken here for lunch on a tour of the island and the views are fabulous as it overlooks English Harbour and Nelson's Dockyard. The jerk chicken, rice and salad was nice though nothing special but the view is stunning.
