This was a good meal especially in an area with not much going on. The lobster was cooked perfectly and the price was reasonable. Give this place a shot. The service is not the greatest.

We tried this place for dinner because the Rough Guide rated it so highly. The only high thing here was the prices and not the praise for the food. It was fine but it was not as it was pitched to be. I expected something pretty awesome for the dinner price.

Saturday night in August was not the time to dine here. The mosquitos feasted on us despite the staff providing a small mosquito burner. We were the only 2 people for the first hour and then one family showed up. Maybe that is why the service was so listless. The food was very mediocre and every dish had copious quantities... More

Half the items on the menu were not available. Tuesday night, we were the only diners. Ended up with the chicken burger which was tasteless. Service was mediocre.

Customer service was a 2, food was a 1. The cost for the quality does not match up, and there were 14 of us!

Do not eat there! I repeat, do not eat there! Tasteless, overpriced food and expensive drinks. The starter was supposed to be a brochette of steak wrapped around cheese. Couldn't even chew the steak. My, what should have been, main course of stir fried mixed seafood in a garlic sauce, turned out to be a boiled up, under seasoned plate... More

Our group of 20 sat outdoors and enjoyed dinner. Nice ambiance, delicious food. The seafood kabobs were excellent!

We had dinner there. Food was good, but if you are a wine drinker, order beer or a drink. They have only one white, one red, and the red was not good. They were nice enough to take it away and not charge us for it. The Belikin Beer was good and cold. Food was good, but nothing earth shattering.... More

Tasty selection of local and classic cocktails to start. I had the Icy Blue Ocean. Very refreshing. I had the "catch of the day" red snapper--very delicate crust--always a favorite and this was very good. My companion had the coconut shrimp--also excellent. I'll eat there again.
