Great food, the tuna was amazing, we also tried the duck, the seafood pasta and a salad and all were top notch. The sunsets and the location on the beach make this restaurant a must stop. The highlight however was Bruno, probably the best waiter on the Island

This was not one of our favorite places. We stopped for lunch and it was just good, but nothing spectacular. We ordered sandwiches with chips, thinking we'd get homemade chips not a bag of Lays for the price. I had crab salad which was fresh and was good. Just didn't seem worth a $35.00 lunch, without cocktails.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review and we're thrilled you enjoyed the crab salad! Our prices our competitive for the island and definitely when it comes to a seafood meal. We do not state on our menu that the chips are house-made but will consider mentioning that they are brand name. Thanks again for taking... More

The open air patio facing the beach set a wonderful mood for dinner. We ordered the Caesar salad, seafood linguine and chicken Marsala. The meal came with wonderful warm bread drenched in oil and balsamic vinegar. Overall our meal was tasty and satisfying.

Food is overpriced - it's just not good value compared to your other options on the island. Service is slow and unapologetic I get the impression that they just don't care. And it shows in the quality of the food and the attitude of the staff.
