We stopped in to experience GC cooking the way the locals like it and we were not disapponted. The food was amazing and plentiful, and the prices were so much more reasonable than most of the island. Highly recommended!

This is a relaxing, casual, authentic Island kitchen. The setting is somewhat rustic but is overlooking the water. Friendly people and tasty food.
