We love eating here as a family when we are in Florida. It has such a relaxed island vibe. The menu is very reasonable and the cocktails are amazing.

Nice atmosphere upstairs....Thanksgiving week. Busy everywhere....Had a nice lunch including fish tacos and then browsed the square of shops after lunch. Finally, we enjoyed a brilliant sunset over Lido Beach. All of this was within walking distance from the restaurant.
