Large menu, variety. Open Wednesday thru Saturday for lunch and dinner. JT makes the best mojito. The fried pork chops and mac and cheese are great, also mussels and red snapper.

Very relaxed outdoor dinning. The menu is a mix of Mediterranean/Caribbean food. We had mussels, conch and swordfish which was very good. The owners and staff are very attentive and friendly. They are only open Thursday-Saturday so plan ahead. We will go again when we return to St Croix.

Great, comfortable, mostly open air restaurant with the most welcoming proprietors, Angie and J.T. Fresh fish, conch, chicken, goat in stew....y'all good and quite reasonable. A fun place to go. Just check the days they're open.
