Went with group of people and experienced some issues with the waiter to situate us with the tables. Location is nice but food was nothing really special to suggest to go back.

Great food and wine. Service friendly and efficient. Live music was fab on some nights of the week. Short walk out of Port Elizabeth, look out for the blue light! Another must do place on the wonderful island of Bequia

Stumbled upon this place quite by accident, but what a great find . Had a superb lunch with great service and tasty wholesome food. Would definitely recommend to others, not only for the food, but for the welcome and the fantastic view.
