“does not live up to reviews.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

food was over-cooked and over priced. we had the special crayfish at $34 dollars.Half a very small cray (like a lobster but no claws) but it was so dry and flavourless it didn't taste like anything !
ika mata worst we had on the island!

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Went to this restaurant twice while we were there, first time we had amazing food, my tuna was perfect so much to the point that i ordered the exact same thing the second time we went, however the second time my tuna was slightly cold in the middle, still delicious however.

Expensive but also worth it for a nice evening out

“Best Ika Mata in Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

This is a great little place, not cheap, and not amzing food, but very good food compared to others on the island and wonderful Ika Mata - we tried this everywhere and Flame Tree is the best. Also the service is just epic!

“Very good food in lovely setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Food was tasty and nicely presented. Service was very good. Setting is beautiful. A few bugs around -- maybe just the time of year (bring insect repellant)
