Food was delicious and service was exceptional! Wished we had time to dine there for a second time during our trip. The sweet plantain appetizer was a standout so was the red snapper.

Haven't eaten here in a couple of years, stopped by the other night to a great meal. Ambiance, service, and food was top notch. Adding to our list of regular meals when on the island.

During a recent stay at Oyster Bay, we tried several of the nearby restaurants and Canoa was the hands-down favorite! We loved the atmosphere and every dish was delicious. Mahi with creole sauce was a favorite but our best meal was when we shared four appetizers and a salad - fabulous. Don't miss the snapper ceviche.

We had avoided Canoa for a couple of years after a bad experience. Not so much the food but the staff. This time our party of 4 had a great meal with attentive service.

food and service were great and the prices were reasonable It's right in the Marina. It is a seafood restaurant with a carribean touch. We had a party of eight and received excellent service and food and drinks.

The food was good but waiting over a good 30 min plus to get your food was not something I enjoyed. Staff was friendly; food wasn't bad; but again the time we got anything to eat was very long.

We enjoyed eating here on a quiet evening. The staff was very friendly and the food was also very good. The seafood pasta with lobster cream sauce was a bit heavy but still nicely done with plenty of seafood and a very generous portion.

Our dining experience was wonderful, our waitress Doreen was very attentive and did a great job! The good was all prepared very well, the stuffed halibut and red snapper were both fabulous! Highly recommend this while on the island.

The service was friendly and pleasant. I ordered the duck spring rolls. I was not a fan. I really wanted to enjoy them but they were bland and the sauce was not a good compliment to it. The prices were decent. The food took a while to come out.

Excelent! We ordered the catch of the day it was great. Service also very good. This is quality. The scenery also was beatiful and they have a good wine selection.
