Been there so many times they all blend together but each one is unique in itself. the staff has mostly all been there awhile and know their regulars and take good care of the first timers too. If not, they want to know about it. Well run shop with a fast kitchen and food served hot and ready. the bar is nice to hang and watch the tube, or talk sports, or ask questions when the bar keep has a moment for you... It is not on the regular drags but is easy to find and free parking can be found. Ask ahead for specials and if they have a wine tasting go to it. Just don't beat me to it... You will have a good time or tell the manager or owner and they will make it right.

We ate here after a fun and strenuous snorkel trip. Nice vibe, really friendly and attentive staff. We had the ribs, which were fabulous, and the mochiko-crusted catch of the day (it was ono), which was beyond fabulous, The fish itself was mild and tender, the very light crust tasty - but not spectacular. However, with the mix of flavors from the vegetables and sauce - wasabi, a little ginger and lime, each bite was a little different and each terrific. I wouldn't have thought sweet potatoes would work in this context, but they did! Not a cheap meal, but very very worthwhile.

Great location, lunch staff and menu is top notch. Tried the Kahlua Pork sandwich, also the Calamari, and the Pork Spring rolls, all excellent.

Somewhat strange location, out of town on what Brits would call a small business park. We hadn't booked in advance, but took a chance on a mid-week visit & were surprised to see the place was full - seemingly of local residents. We waited & had a drink at the bar, & my early impressions weren't overwhelming. Nevertheless, a table became available after about the 20 minutes that we had been told to expect.
The food was excellent. My wife chose the swordfish from the daily fish special, & she said it was absolutely fantastico, well nice (her words & description, not mine). For dessert we had the macadamia nut bar, which was absolutely tremendous. Service was very friendly & attentive.
Tip for holidaymakers - you get a discount upon production of your hire car keys, although our server could tell we were on holiday & he didn't need any proof. (He thought we were Aussies however). Wish we had visited more than once during our 10 night stay on the island, but will put that right next time

It was just amazing! After an initial bad experience with cigarette smoke coining in from the parking lot, we were moved. It was just exquisite! my son is a chef in Napa, and it was as good as something he would have made. A high compliment, for sure!
