“Very good bar food, but only average drinks”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Positive:
Very cool location, right on the bay (not the ocean). You can sit outside and have cocktails. The burgers are good!

Negative:
The drinks are really average, the Mojito was not good. I literally ended up going and getting wine from the West Indies Wine Company because the drinks were so marginal.

“Great view and Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The menu was limited but the sampler platters were a good choice and had something for everyone. Sitting outside is definitely the way to go if you have the option. It almost reminded me of a Spanish tapas restaurant.

“not a lot of character”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

upscale looking facade, staff good, food and drinks ok, not a lot to set this place and all of Camana Bay apart to make this a definite stop for the future.

“A sterile setting”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice place. The menu is pretty limited but what's on it was good. We had the fish basket (nice), Parmesan and herb crusted fries (nice) and chicken quesadilla (very nice). The cocktails were good, though the lychee cooler would have benefitted from lychee juice, not just lychee liqueur, to give it more flavour. The service was very good with our waitress looking after us well. However, the setting was very sterile; you could be anywhere in the world sitting outside. Crafted walkways, fountains...all a bit predictable. Inside was a bit soulless.

“Great food and drink; service spotty”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Would give this 5 stars but for initially horrid service. Once the manager realized we were being completely ignored, we got extra good service, but we were ready to walk at the outset. Food was very good. Drinks were all good. The picante margarita is to die for - must try it if you like margaritas and spicy stuff. Nice setting. Will definitely return when back in GC.
