“A must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Great little spot! Opens early for breakfast & the staff is beyond amazing! They helped us find a place to change money, gave suggestions on a cheap grocery store, & were even willing to be there late for a Monday night football game! Only place that had the NFL games on & the food was just delicious!! Great happy hour 4-7 & the fresh juice was to die for, have the beachcomber :)

“Good food - not too bothered service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Wondered across to here after swimming with turtles. Great veggie food and smoothies and a quiet and peaceful setting. I think though that we must have arrived at an inconvenient time for the staff as the service was somewhat indifferent - neither friendly, nor unfriendly, just seemed as if he could not really be bothered. Shame really as everything else was great. I was going to withhold the service charge that was automatically added but it did not cost a lot, did not really spoil our meal and it seemed petty to do so.

“Best Fish Tacos Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband walked over to this place after snorkeling in the bay. Its a cute place that's tucked back under some trees. Very shady and cool. We both had different variations of fish tacos and all I can say is WOW. They were by far the best fish tacos we had ever had. I had the blackened fish and my husband the grilled fish. Amazing. So fresh, so flavorful. This place was also very inexpensive. We had fish tacos, chips and salsa and 2 beers for under $20 US. This is a wonderful hidden gem!
