Our car rental guy recommended this place nearby our hotel to us. Foods here was delicious and their spicy lime juice steamed fish was extremely burning lips. Fast food serving and reasonable price. Yums 🤤

Awesome! 11 people, 30 blue crabs, one whole fish and lots of other dishes and drinks. Total bill $150! A great meal in a local setting. Don't let the street front outdoor venue put you off. Everything is fresh!

Very friendly atmosphere and good selection of fresh sea food. I always look for where the locals eat not the tourists and this place is packed with locals.
