“Choose your own snapper.”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Our party of six had a very nice meal here. The wait staff was very attentive and you can pick your own fish if you like. The chef grilled the fish perfectly and right before your eyes. A nice little cafe.

“Good but not excellent”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

We had the lobster and pork tacks. The lobster ($15usd) had great flavor but the pork tacos ($7.50usd) were pretty bland, but not terrible. We thought the service was great though, but unfortunately a drunk woman in the restaurant thought otherwise. She started yelling and made a huge scene because another family got their meal before her. Turns out she ordered from the non-english speaking cook instead of her server. The staff handled it well though and everyone in the restaurant kind of giggled her redicilous scene off.

“excellent meal”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

great food , excellent host who was very friendly, we very much enjoyed it. the only bad thing was the inconsiderate smokers who lit up while every one was still eating, wanted to crap on there table and see if they liked the smell

“Fresh fish, but poor cooking and service.”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

The restaurant looks pretty nice, with enthusiastic host. I ordered grilled snapper. When i got it, it was undercooked, after returning the dish, it was put back on the grill, and i got it back, dry and overdone.. Very poor handling as the fish was perfectly fresh, The sidedishes had also cooled down, although they had returned to the kitchen as well. Poor value for money. Would surely not recommend this place. Service all in all pretty poor.

“good grilling, poor bartending, not much food for money”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

We ordered 2 different mixed drinks that tasted the same and neither tasted of the rum there was supposed to be in it. We had shrimp and fish kebobs with rice and mashed potatoes which were pretty good, but you don't get a lot of food for the money (1 kebob for $7.50 US).
