Someone would expect a tacky, beach rip-off joint from the name of the restaurant (and the neighborhood).

A "lucky" find that we've visited twice now. Interesting menu selections but we've always been drawn to the lunch buffet. All selections excellent, except desserts which seemed a bit old/dry. But who needs dessert after a nice assortment of pleasant Caribbean dishes and wonderful fruits....More
