“Great place for snacks and a drink.....or two.”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We went for appetizers and drinks and sat at a table with our feet in the sand watching the sunset over the bay. The food and drinks were very good and we came back for drinks another evening. We sat at the bar and had a good time. Good atmosphere and good tropical drinks. Excellent mojitos.

“good food and atmosphere, unreliable service”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

It was packed when we arrived around 6:30. It was just my wife and myself so we were still able to get a table about 10 meters from the water on the beach. It was a great romantic setting.
We had tapas for an appetizer and split the mixed seafood plate...both were very good.
We had to ask for our check. Our waitor brought our check and our complimentary rum shots.
He then forgot about us. We sat there for an 45 minutes to an hour waiting for him to pick up our check. Eventually, I had to go meet him at a table where he was taking orders and give him the our money with the check. I told him how long we had been waiting and he didn't seem to care. He just told me to come back on that thursday because they were having live salsa music.
When I ask for my check it's because I'm ready to leave and may have somewhere else to go. I would probably go back here for the setting, but definitely not the service. Other than that we enjoyed the dinner.
This probably left a more negative impression than the restaurant deserves, but it was my first impression.

“Amazing lil restaurant”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Had a handful of wonderful meals here, and Sunday night was simply amazing, especially the live jazz music and 12 year old drummer. Cyril was a great waiter and took good care of us. Food was just amazing, price was perfect. Alcohol was also great. This is a must-see in Grand Case. Definitely a very relaxed atmosphere, added with great views.

“Mixed Review , location great , service great , food so-so”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We were there on June 26th . We celebrated a friends birthday . Much fun was had with rum !!! The service was great and friendly . The food was average . the person's in our group got the Calamari as an appetizer , it was fried to death which as you know makes it a bit rubbery , so before the main comes out we were a little put off . Positives were great service with a smile and great location. Negatives were inconsistent food quality .
