Super weak drinks and okay food. Prices were reasonable and service was good though. Better places on the island for food and drink though for sure.

Restaurant is quite Nouvo and Preppy. The Coconut Shrimp was good but different with the red and green peppers, baby corn and water cress. Like most places the wait staff do not listen when taking orders. I'd ordered a vodka martini, with olives on the...More
