We ate here on a Sunday for lunch. There wasn't much going on at YHG because there weren't any cruise ships in port and some of the shops were closed. I had the fish sandwich which I recommend. Service was so-so.

If you like looking at enormous yachts this is a good place to go.

Good place to sip on some beers and imagine you are in one of the million dollar yachts that are right in front of you in the bay. Didnt try the food. The service was just OK.

Great, view, good food, reasonable priced, great location. All the servers were very friendly. Resurant was surrounded by duty free stores. At night beautiful boats were docked.
This is priced $$$

We ordered pizza and sandwiches. Beautiful view over the water. It was a safe place to eat after dark.
Food was good.

Except for the cost of the cab ride from our hotel ($6 per person each way) this was a nice dining experience on the harbor next to some amazing yachts.
