We ate here on our first night in Lucaya. I ordered the cracked conch with macaroni and cheese and cole slaw. The conch was crispy, the mac n cheese extremely cheesy and cole slaw sweet and tart as it should be. My daughter ordered the grilled grouper with plantains and rice n peas. All perfectly prepared. Although both entrees were... More

Had a great dinner here. Fried conch was delicious and not overcooked. Hearty portion for the price. Standard sides of fries and rice & beans did not disappoint.

This place just really isn't so good. The overall level of food, service, environment was just about 2/5 stars. It wasn't bad!!! Just not nearly as good as the other places we went: Taino Restaurant, Zorbas, Pices, and Sabor.

A group went there, selected for menu choices after looking around. The hostess was asked, directly, if they could handle a party of 14 and the answer was of course. Not so. The seated us, then delivered our drinks, finally, and eventually took orders, nothing out of the ordinary, from the menu. After an hour and a quarter of absolutely... More

I ate here one night and had the alaskan crab claws. they were delicious. I ate here a second night and had the stone crab. It was the best crab I've ever had. It is a fun place for dinner. The staff is amazing. I would highly recommend this place for dinner.

I ordered the Shrimp and Avocado Pita. What I got was a tortilla wrap with pickle relish and shrimp. It was not good. There wasn't a single piece of avocado! I don't recommend it.

My mom and I split the seafood platter. It was $50, but worth EVERY PENNY!! It had a broiled lobster tail, tender friend conch, fried grouper, fried shrimp, and two sides. We left being beyond stuffed!

Imagine yourself ariving on an island paradise after 8 hours of travel; you're starving and excited. A short ferry ride later you're in a popping marketplace of restaurants and shops. As you walk you notice a cool looking new Orleans themed restaurant that promises great food and great music. You're sold, or at least we were. Unfortunately for us the... More

I didn't really care for my food, my husband did like his, Though he didn't eat his entire meal. The prices were too high. I did not enjoy my time there. Fine Dinning prices for a hamburger shop atmosphere.
