I had the best steak of my life at this restaurant. My wife could not quit raving about her meal as well. Great value for what we paid.

The food was tasty but if you are an extremely picky eater, like myself, you may not find the four course worth your while. The soup was amazing however.

Dinner was one of the best ever! I suggest making reservations. The entire staff is wonderful! Relaxing time right on the beach. Never felt hurried during meal. Four course meal was incredible! I can't wait to return!

Chef Rob serves a 4-course fixed price meal that includes soup, salad, entree, and dessert. We especially liked the pork tenderloin and steak. Desserts really aren't needed after the preceding courses but are excellent. Salad was a watermelon mixture with just the right dressing to complement the fruit. Could have made a meal of the soup. Wine list a little... More

It was ok, I like the appetizers better. The chicken/shrimp meal was I think overcooked but flavorful.

We stayed at Villa margarita which is next door to the restaurant so we just had to try this place. Let me just say do the 4 course meal it's so worth it. We did learn its smart to make a reservation. We were lucky that they could squeeze us in.

We had a very nice dinner here but I think our expectations were too high reading other reviews. I will say it was not as expensive as others have said. The food was good, but not out of the world.

Hi Kim, Thank you for a kind and honest review. My intention never has been to be 'over the top' with our restaurants. My intention always has been to offer a very good meal, friendly 'real people' service, for a honest price, while using the freshest, locally sourced, ingredients. All served on a beautiful beach. That is what we try... More

Chef Rob changes his menu on a daily base inspired by the freshest products delivered to us by the ocean and the land.

Enjoy a 4 course gourmet menu or 'a la Carte' options while zipping a tantalizing cocktail overlooking the Caribbean sea.

We do welcome vegetarians and will cater to any menu restriction, within reason.
