Limited menu but what they produce is very good. Seats about 40.
I had the steak in regional sauce. It came with a nice selection of greens and potatoe wedges. The steak was excellent and cooked to my preference.
A couple of minor glitches: The butter arrived a bit late after I had finished the convert. The pepper grinder was offered halfway through my meal, although it did not need any further seasoning.
I passed on dessert but had an extremely nice Calem tawny port with my coffee and a free sample of the island’s Pineapple liqueur. Will be returning to sample the Bellypork.

The owners are so welcoming! This dinner was a highlight of our vacation - so much fun and great food! We went back on our last night to see the owners and get one last piece of the best pineapple cake on the island. The food is fresh, the kebabs are excellent and you won't be disappointed!

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path in a residential neighborhood, but it's definitely worth the trip out there. We got there at 2:30, even though it closes at 3, but the owners were more the gracious and never rushed us once. The fish is fresh, and the food is like home-cooked. We had the clams, shared a fish, and had the stuffed mackerel-- SOOO good. Don't miss it!

Great local cuisine specializing in fish. While the décor is plain, it has a great local flavor.
Friendly service with owner on site serving tables.
