Our group included both adventurous and picky eaters. All of us enjoyed our dinner at It Rains Fishes. From the catch of the day (mahi or snapper on the night we visited) to a simple burger--the food was well prepared, and our server was charming! Right on the waterfront, no rush and no hurry. We enjoyed the food and the... More

This is one of the most expensive restaurants in the island. Their food is way too bland for my taste. Nice and friendly staff, but the food was not that great, for my taste.

I don't understand all the rave reviews because this place is mediocre at best. The location is lovely but the rest is just "meh." The service was spotty and when one of our orders came out wrong (it was unclear whose fault it was), the waitress rolled her eyes and sighed. The wine pour was stingy. My daughter got the... More

You can be casual yet enjoy a fine dining experience. With friends just finishing a dive and starving our friends said we must eat at It Rains Fishes. I was apprehesive as I had on my suit under a sulu and t-shirt and the restaurant looked very nice. No worries, we had a delicious dinner with delightful staff.

It Rains Fishes did not disappoint. Everything we ordered was delicious, from tuna sashimi to grilled wahoo in creole sauce. One criticism, another nearby table was offered homemade french fries instead of just french fries. They were dutch and their fries really looked good.

We had a nice evening at this restaurant. The service was excellent and the food delicious. Although it was outside there were ceiling fans that kept everything very comfortable. We would definitely return.
