My wife and I enjoyed our night at this famous restaurant. We sat out front overlooking the boats on the harbour listening to the live local jazz band eating high quality local cuisine. A beautiful night. I recommend wholeheartedly.

I'm a regular for cocktails when on the island. The bartender makes the most perfect Mojitos and Frozen Margaritas! Staff is attentive and welcoming. The Crab and Fish cakes are excellent nibbles.

Fantastic experiences. We've gone for drinks and we've eaten there a couple of times. The staff are wonderful and everyone seems to be so happy at work, lots of giggles. They have time to say hello and chat. Nothing pushy here. Excellent food and fantastic customer service.

I popped in to have a refreshing fruit punch (I was told they were the best here) and they were right! Friendly staff, great service and a lovely setting!
