“Best place on the island”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Once again The Mooring is my favourite place on the island to eat, They have a small menu but what they do, they do it well, like others should! Food is delicious and service is award winning. Other restaurants have a lot to learn! Thanks again!

“Fresh & Delish!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Absolutely beautiful fresh fish sandwiches at the cutest little cafe on the island, stunning spot. Staff are super friendly & sandwiches made super fresh. The mahi mahi sandwich is delicious, washed down with fresh coconut juice yum yum!

“Best fish sandwiches”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The staff here make the best fish sandwiches on the island. The fresh mahimahi sandwiches are the best (caught daily). We had to keep coming back for lunch everyday, and really good price (I think $8 or $10). They have other options (chicken, pan fried tuna, BLT etc) but these were my favourite. There are also good views out to the lagoon with casual type seating.
