Came here for a taste of the Caribbean & wow did I get it & more. Situated on the marina, the location could not be more perfect especially at sunset. The vibe is very relaxed with good music & even better cocktails. I started with...the seviche with mango & the funchi fries both tasted amazing & the fish was fresh. For main I decided to go for the tabooshh platter as it gave me all the local delicacies on one plate, the portion was huge so make sure you come hungry here as you get incredible value for money. I have to give a big shout out to the owner Martin & supervisor Nishaila they made my stay super enjoyable.More

Lovely setting in the marina, really authentic food passed down through generations and such fun staff. Tasty reasonably priced cocktails and delicious food with the catch of the day options. The goat curry is delicious and spicy, the ribs are the best on the island...by far and if you have the chance try the red snapper or the lobster from martins grandmothers recipe 😋More

We started our night with a delicious cocktail Malibu Blue, original creation of the barman. Totally recommended. Afterwards, we had keshi yená and a dish we cannot remember it's name (chicken with mango and coconut milk). Both were spectacular. The restaurant is amazing, the service...perfect, the waterfront setting beautiful... we had a wonderful time. We will surely be back!More

My wife and I really enjoyed our evening here, the service was easy and relaxed, the way we like it, and the food was really good. Not the best food ever, and drinks are expensive but great setting, and food prices very reasonable.

Nice location, but that's about it. Waiters are friendly but service was very slow. Actually they missed out on making money because we could not get the drinks. waited 1 hour to get food on the table!! Place was busy but that is no excuse...to not being able to give faster service. When food arrived it was not as tasteful as expected. My lomito dish was really tasteless. Not even salt & pepper. Other 5 persons at the table did not really enjoy their food either.More

This was a great find. The Caribbean food was made to order, fresh and flavorful. Would go here again if we go back to the island. Starting with Tapas and going on to the main courses kept us very happy.

We had a very good dinner here. The owner Martin is great about going out of his way to talk with you. He took time to tell us a few places to see on the island.

A unique place...is right on the water but the restaurant seems to only be open for dinner, so much of the time you are there it is dark...so the view cannot be appreciated as much. Food was good.
