The best in Native Cuisine and it is located on the beach front. Conch Soup is a must have and fresh catch of the day daily not to mention the finger licking lobster done any style

This is a great place to visit for a local experience. You'll meet a lot of local entrepreneurs, each selling their unique trade. We enjoyed talking with Copper and Cook Food while waiting for our snapper. The food was delicious, these places dont' have menus...More

We were attracted by great reviews. We were slightly dismayed at the area- dark and slightly dodgy appearing (sort of place where you might find someone up to know good). We went up to the restaurant with a gaggle of pimps yelling and bargaining. The...More

Ate fish here twice, escovitch and coconut, both times good but a bit pricy (1500/2000 JMD) food for local standard. The service was good, only the toilet didn’t work.
