This was one of the best curry's I have had in a long time. The lobster was cooked perfect. Dawn offers a mild medium and hot. I got the hot and it was perfect in my opinion, if you like spicy this hit the spot....More

This is where you go for real local seafood and other Garifuna delights! The seafood is always fresh off the boat and the daily specials are worth checking out. I recommend the conch ceviche, the portion is easily big enough to share with 2-4 people...More
