Recommended by a waiter at the Tini Martini Bar. We walked over the bridge and arrived and was promptly seated. Not the greatest ambiance, but turned out to be a fantastic meal with great service. Definitely eat here, you'll love it

I live in Saint Augustine and enjoy this restaurant. The Tuna is always my favorite here. Mostly known for seafood. The chef seems to use French techniques combined with Caribbean flavors.
