I heard about this restaurant on tripadvisor before our trip. It sounded good and I wanted to go there. Everyone who liked it wanted that local beach dining experience. People who didn't like it, was looking for a fast paced bar. Yes, I agree, the service is not fast. But when you are sitting at a table in the sand, fifty feet from the ocean, why would you want to rush it. They bring the food right out to you. We came in on a cruise. Then we had to take a taxi to the West End. We did not get a taxi exiting right off the ship. We looked into renting a car which was $50, then the taxis wanted $50 as well. I heard about a city bus that would take you across the island. Well, what it didn't tell you was that when the ships come into port, they turn those buses into tour buses. So we kept on walking away from the port. We came across "independent" taxi drivers. They try to get you into their "taxi." We said no thank you and kept on walking. We got to the main road and this 17 year old kid caught up to us and started selling his taxi. We were impressed and said yes. He flagged down a taxi coming from the port and told him the price. So I guess he served as a broker. But he told us all about the island and the language. He proceeded to take us across the island to West End. Our road turned into a dirt path that eventually ended. We walked through town, down the beach and found it. It is a cute building right on the water. We sat down with our guide and had lunch. When we arrived they were getting coconuts down from the trees. The waitress asked if we wanted some coconut water. I said sure. She went in and prepared it and then brought us out some water that five minutes earlier, was hanging up in the tree. Can't get more fresh and local than that! We ordered the coconut shrimp. It was very good. The prices are not cheap. They are $8 to $40 depending on what you ordered. Our bill was $15, we shared. But after about one hour siting in the shade on the beach having fresh food brought to our table was fabulous. It is interesting finding this place, but well worth it.
