This place was recommended by a local in the island. So we drove the 20 miles. It was not bad but wish we just went to one of the ones on the island. We had fish, stuff shrimp, claw crabs and shrimp. Tasty and pricey.

I promise, these are the best crab claws you'll ever eat in your life. Their speciality is definitely fried seafood, so stick with that.
