“Always nice at Sun Dog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Good food, nice outdoor setting in Mongoose Junction, and kid friendly. What's not to like? Don't go too late or they run out of the fish special...

“Grouper Tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This Cafe is situated within the Mongoose Junction buildings and shops - open air, only about 5 tables. Our 2 teenage daughters enjoyed virgin daquiris (Mango) that they said were the best they ever had while us parents dropped Spicy Bloody Mary's that were excellent! All of our meals were awesome - Grouper Tacos were in the top 5 I have ever eaten and I'm a Fish Taco snob. Jerk chicken and Chicken BLT Wraps rounded out the other wonderful lunches. Dont miss this great cafe.

“Lunch and shop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Located in the middle of Mongoose Junction where lots of stores to shop. Outdoor eating tables under umbrellas and small bar with delicious rum punches. Good evening menu of entrees, but my favorite is the White Pizza for lunch with a rum punch!

“Warm dining, no view, but tasty.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This restaurant has dining in an interior courtyard amongst stores at Mongoose Junction. There are only five or so tables, and it's warm because it is outside but the ocean breezes are blocked by stores. Our server gave us great advice for our meals and she was very friendly. Our fish was served hot and was prepared perfectly.
