“Pickled Onion had some Mussel!!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I am not a seafood person. I ate the mussels like they were a gift from some higher deity and the wahoo fish as though I had 2 days left to live. Menu was varied and had a great cocktail list. I would recommend to anyone visiting the island.

Glad you enjoyed the mussels! I can say that it is also my 12 year old son's favourite as well. We dry roast them in the oven on a cast iron skillet (allowing the natural juices to remain unadulterated), and then put a dollop of herbed compound butter on them which melts hitting the skillet and causing the most delectable aromas to spread throughout the dining room as the servers carry it to the table. Once there they liberally squeeze fresh lime juice over them, which mixes with the butter and creates a delicious sauce for dipping with the crusty french bread it is served with. It is funny to see, as once one mussel dish comes out and the scents permeate the dining room, we invariably get a multitude of orders!

Thank you so very much for you patronage!

“Great place for casual dining”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Arabian wrap is to die for. Left Bermuda a year ago and have yearned for it ever since, with the spicy coleslaw. First port of call on our return trip recently. Still as good as ever.
Feel the outdoor area could be spruced up as could the toilets.
Hate the chain decor, just not in keeping with what could be such a great bar/ restaurant.

“Yummy lunch!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We sat outside which was great. Server friendly and attentive! I had chicken and pesto panini which was delicious and my husband had a quesadilla which was also good! Reasonably priced! Lots of interesting options on the menu!

“Great Fish & Chips”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We were greeted by the DJ welcoming, "two pretty ladies" -- a little embarrassing but hey, it could be worse! Try the fish and ships -- excellent! Not too much batter. Light and clean tasting! Yum! Great pina colada too!
