Raul gave us great advice and we had the conch fritters and cerviche. They were both fresh, flavorful, and yummy. The atmosphere is casual and the view amazing. It gets a nice breeze thru the deck and is so peaceful. We will definitely go back!

Reasonably priced and very casual. Fun menus! Can be a bit noisey Due to the proximity to the road. Lovely view of the beach.

WEB site says they open at 10:30. A sign out front says they open at 11:00. We arrived at 10:50 and asked if we could just have a seat on the porch and wait for them to open. We were the only tourists in the area but the manager said "If I let you in then I have to let... More

Went to The West Deck twice during our stay. Always accommodating and very friendly. Sol was our waitress and did everything to make our meal enjoyable. Food was excellent and ocean view really amazing. Management was always checking to make sure everything was good.

We returned to the West Deck twice last week on vacation, and we once again enjoyed great margaritas, really good food and good service. The fish and the shrimp were excellent. Our waiter, Francisco, was delightful. He was attentive but not too much. He is a good part of the whole operation. Thanks, Francisco and chefs at The West Deck!

My girlfriend and I arrived shortly after the sunset. We asked if we could be seated and eat at the bar which was no problem. The restaurant is perched right on the beach with a deck like atmosphere. To the side of the building is a quaint little area on the beach where you can dine with your toes in... More

Beautiful view but food is just average. Calamari appetizer was terrible. My husband and I had chicken salad sandwiches, and they were just okay. Our daughter had a steak wrap that was very good. Hostess was rude, but our waiter -Franklin was fabulous. Very mixed experience --and we will not return again. Better places to eat on the island.

This was a casual beachfront restaurant with friendly hostess and waitress. We had fun with Solika and she gave us some good drink recommendations. We ordered a bunch of appetizers that were very tasty!
