“Decent enough local food”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Food was fine, not exceptional. We made it up the hill as the bar goes off on a Wednesday night (worth checking out for the atmosphere) Nice pumpkin soup and tuna for main course. If I was heading back to the bar I would eat here again but would not make a special effort just for the food

“fun place”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

we went twice and had the most fun and value for our money on the bottom level around the bar area..... a walk up the hill

“Good food but be prepared for music”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

This restaurant is about a 15-20 minute hike up a hill from the water at Marigot Bay. We had seafood, & it was prepared well. The owner's daughter (I think) was training to be a server, & the owner & another woman helped her. She lacked experience, but made up for it with sincerety.

Be prepared for loud music rom the adjacent bar area as night falls. The area on the street outside the restaurant is a gathering place for people admiring the scenery & doing some portable cooking of their own, too.

“Lovely ambiance, but lacking quality”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Perhaps I ordered incorrectly, but my steak was chewy and not well-prepared. My husband's fish was ok. Set on a dock-like property right on Marigot Bay so excellent views, but not the best food. Lovely service though! There were some party boats docked right by the restaurant and the people were loud, so if you want a quiet dinner, might want to check if they are there.
