We were staying at My Lucaya, and we asked the lady that hands out the towels "If you were to go have a meal of your own, where would you go"? Same question asked to several beach salespersons, and the answer turned out to be...More

okay, this place is not five stars but what I wanted was food that tasted like it was made by someone's mom and that's what I got. Delicious home cooking that my mother would have been proud to call her own. I really wanted the...More

Simply Native is one of my favorite eateries in Freeport! If a spot is frequented by the locals, then I want to eat there. There is something for everyone. Great spot for lunch. Good value!

Nothing earth shattering, just good local food. I had a fried whole snapper with good sides. My wife had lamb and it was also really good. What was also nice is its CHEAP. There is a lot of overpriced food in Freeport and this place...More
