We enjoyed the food at this "local" restaurant, and the people were very nice. The room is plain, but that's not unusual in remote Eleuthera. I was turned off, though, by the flies which were clearly going in and out of the kitchen

Just had dinner tonight-- Ordered the Mahi Mahi and the Shrimp platter. Very fresh and exquisite...tasteful and savoury. Would give it a 5* restaurant on the island. Friendly service and great Sunset views!

They are open when the need to be, We went off season and when we called they said sure come down, It was like having dinner with friends, very comfortable. Best to call ahead in off season.
