One of the highest rated palces on the island and the food did not disappoint. Service was similarly excellent.

“Worth the hype”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Given the stellar reviews online and through word of mouth, we gave it a go for our anniversary dinner. Originally, we could only get an early reservation but with a convincing phone call, we got it changed. The atmosphere is nice-very beachy like, but beware that it isn't located on the beach and therefore, it is very hot. My husband was sweating the entire time we were there, and he is in shape. We had good recommendations from our waitress- from food to drinks. The lamb my husband and friend had was well-received and the shrimp I had was pretty good- not the best, but definitely a nice meal. Yes, it is pricey but isn't all of Provo? A nice touch at the end of our meal- coconut ice cream on our plate to honor our 4th wedding anniversary.

“Looks like a tourist trap, but is not”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

As the title suggests, this place has every sign that it could be a tourist trap in the island as many other restaurants in Caribe, but is not. The coloured lights on the Coco trees, the regular service, the good music and the lack of places available when you call, and lot of empty places when you just pop in. But we need to agree that we had one of the best meals in our 20 days to Caribe.
All my 3 courses were amazing - Tuna Sashimi starter, lamb chops (one of the best I had in my life, in a remote island!, and the fruit sorbets as dessert.
It is not coincidence it is still #1 after many reviews.
As stated, the Service would be the detailed that needs to be improved.

“Best Restaurant on the Island”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

We've been to many restaurants on the island and were really excited to try out this place. We weren't disappointed, the food was delicious! We had the tuna sashimi and it was honestly the best sashimi I've eaten ever, and I go to many sushi places while at home and in NYC. I highly recommend you arrive early if you don't have reservations, we got there around 6 and were able to get in before the dinner rush. Otherwise, if you can get reservations i'd advise that as well, but we tried and they were booked 3 days out.
