We stopped in for cocktails before dinner. Nice outdoor seating to people watch. Prices and service exceptional. Also, the BEST chips and salsa! Salsa was some of the best we've had with fresh ingredients. We weren't in town long enough to eat a meal but...More

This Café is tied to the Palma Royale hotel. Breakfast comes with your room, and is usually pretty good. They serve standard US type breakfasts, bacon, eggs, toast, or pancakes or omelets with a little fruit and some fresh squeezed OJ. Coffee is pretty good,...More

Good relaxed atmosphere. I had the vegetable omelette for breakfast with an orange juice. The breakfast was very average, the omelette was not cooked properly and the juice was bitter. However the service was good and fast and the chairs and restaurant were comfortable.

Often USA visitors look for something that appears familiar when traveling..so they see this place and eat here...Lousy food Slow and grumpy staff...Bad imitation of the great USA Breakfast...(Why not stick to Caribbean style) Apparently they do dinner better. we didn't bother going back

We met our guide here when we 1st got in. It was a nice safe place to meet. It was easy to find. The bano was clean, and the food was yummy. Not the most amazing breakfest ever but safe and good.

This quiet restaurant is right on the main street next to the best little grocery store one can find. The food is good, service is good, and the serving size is just right.

Wish I could give it a higher rating because the food was good-but the service was just with attitude and not good. Go if you can overlook the service-the location is good
