Breakfast is very good, and an excellent bargain. It's also nice because there's no A/C, and it's cooler in the morning. Quieter too.
Lunch is pretty good, but spendy. Service will usually be slow since it is packed. If you're not ok with shade and open air, then the lack of A/C and the bugs will get to you.

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The owner seated us and checked on us regularly to see how our meal was going. I had the special - a half Caribbean lobster with a shrimp/scallop skewer and found it to be outstanding and reasonably priced compared to the cost of lobster elsewhere on the island. My Mom had a shrimp wrap that she enjoyed. My husband's dish was by far the best though. He chose the mixed meat platter. All of the meats were cooked nicely and deliciously spiced. The rice that is offered as a side was some of the best I have ever had - very flavorful with an excellent assortment of veggies mixed in. The only complaint we had was that we were thoroughly chewed by mosquitoes by the end of the meal. If you choose to dine here bring your citronella bracelets or spray some on you so that you can fully enjoy your meal. With the very nice tropical jungle garden ambiance comes the tropical bugs!

Excellent place to chill and relax after a long day. Love the feel of being in a tropical paradise. The service is great and the food is worth the price.

Thanks to receiving a gift certificate , we tried the kangaroo court for lunch. Can't say enough about it. The owner served us, very very pleasant and welcoming. The atmosphere , outside in a sort of courtyard that makes you feel like you are completely somewhere else in the world adds completely to this gem of a restaurant. The menu has something for everyone and the baked goods are mouthwatering. I have searched to find their email address as I would like to send a formal thank you again to the owner , however I have been unable to locate one. Location is fantastic, behind the courthouse. Definately going back there. The menu can accomodate children too and we saw her doing just that with a large family that had come in.
