Had the baracuda but it was dry. Served with french fries which I'm not fond of, coconut rice & coleslaw. Nothing special & a little priicey too.

What a delicious restaurant! I had the fish soup and mahi mahi. So good. My husband had stuffed pineapple with curry shrimp and rice. The Aruba Ariba drink was the best I had on island! So awesome.

The service was poor and we were the only people in the restaurant. My red snapper was the smallest that I was served all week and the most expensive. The drink was good.

We were extremely happy we made this stop. After our cruise vacation was over we all agreed that this was by far the best meal we had. And, we went to the highly recommended steakhouse on the cruise ship and this was still much better....More

We stopped in for lunch concerned we were a little damp from our cruise ship excursion. The hostess and staff welcomed us with open arms. The food and the drinks were delicious. Would definitely eat here again!
