We went there 3 times in 2 weeks and loved the ambiance. Food is not bad. Prices are high. Nelson's dock should be seen if you are visiting south of the island - English harbour area.

Popped in after visiting Nelson’s Dockyard. Beautiful location, great staff, good coffee and excellent food. The eggs benedict were great.

The Sesame Tuna was fantastic! Noodles were a little undercooked and stuck together. Beautiful and relaxing location with lots of little birds flying around.
