We have eaten here several times over the past year or so. They always have interesting food and always incredibly tasty! A must try is their brussel sprouts with bacon...delicious! I had fried okra last week with aioli sauce that was incredible! And plenty of food! Don't miss this one-of-a-kind specialty restaurant! Worth the trip to AMI!

We had the fried beets, and they were great. I had Chicken Coq Au Vin and it was good but nothing special. My wife had fish that was fresh and cooked well. Wine by the glass was decent. Most places on these islands take advantage of the captive audience and dish out poor quality. Eat Here was definitely a cut... More

What a great little restaurant. Nice place & decor, staff were really friendly and helpful & everyone's food (10 of us) was fantastic (the ribs especially). We've been in the US 2 weeks (NYC & Orlando so far) and this is the best place all round so far. 👍

I went in with the intention of settling for the grilled cheese sandwich that's included on the menu because I'm incredibly picky and don't usually try new things. I ordered the French Onion Soup as well. But, I didn't stop there. I also ordered the pot roast with the intention of trying a little of each that evening and eating... More

We ate here on our last night of our vacation and really regretted leaving it till it was too late as we definitely would have returned. Lovely welcome and a very busy restaurant. We were seated quickly and we ordered ribs and garlic chips to start - the ribs came with coleslaw and fries..... But they came in handy! Both... More

I have brought my family and friends to this establishment several times. Best fish tacos I've ever had. And kids get to make their own pizza! It has no curb appeal and a quite vanilla name, but the menu and quality can hold its own with anyone on this island.

Interesting menu and everything very well cooked. Coq au vin and ribs a stand out although the heart attack hot dog is worth... More

We turned up after 9:30pm having found a number of other restaurants closed. We were welcomed despite there being 9 of us and our arrival close to closing time. The waitress could not have been more helpful and patient. The food was good and interesting. I had - shrimpcargo - like escargot but with shrimp instead of snail, which was... More
