Was told to go here from a friend and I’m glad we did. It’s off the path of crazy hotel restaurants which gives you more of a local vibe. The food was very fresh and authentic, and the staff was hospitable. Highly recommend this place!

If you are looking for delicious fish, this is the best place on the island. We eat here every visit, and it never disappoints. We love the barracuda and yellow fin tuna!

You can call them directly but they only answer the phone at certain times of the day. The way we got them was through our hotel concierge. I contacted the hotel (as soon as I knew what day I wanted) & they did it for us .
