“Gourmet Mexican”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

A delightful little restaurant with food that could compete for awards anywhere. Make a reservation for a table on the patio where the atmosphere is very romantic. The service is excellent, too--this has become one of our favorite spots on the island.

“Fantastic - highly recommended!!!!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We would eat here again and again. This was a wonderful restaurant in a quiet location and with a beautiful courtyard setting. It had an extensive menu and some of the very best food we have eaten. A lovely dining experience with an excellent and honest waiter. He was bold enough to say that they took one dessert off of the menu as it didn't taste right...that was good enough for us. The service and food all round was above excellent.

We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough and so please form your own view and eat here. It will be worth the wait....

“Great outdoor setting”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We have eaten here many times and the outdoor courtyard is lovely. I also enjoy spying the black kitty that lives on the property roaming about as patrons eat. Very cute! We love their cherry bombs-filled with a spicy fish concotion-but you must ask about them as they are off the menu. In other seasons they have delicious squash blossoms!!!
The fish is wonderful-fresh and beautifully prepared!

“Great food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Loved our dinner here. Ask for the waiter's favorites or specials - they may not all be on the menu!

“Nasty Experience...”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Odd combinations abound. Location way off tract, atmosphere an absolute ZERO. They attempt to be in the worst way an upscaled establishment, but fail poorly. Food, over the top attempt to be a fusion styled cuisine. Results...devastating, heavily overpriced, poor quality and substandard service. To add insult to an overrated "joint" where if your not in the inner circle you can sit in the mosquito infested garden and scratch more than you head why you even stepped into this place. Then you have the displeasure of meeting the owner, an obnoxious American by the name of "Christian" please save us for this horror... Buyer BEWARE..!
