Our local guide for the day suggested this as a stop for lunch. The name drew us in, and the menu kept us there. :)

Only one small tip - bring bug spray. The skeeters were on full alert!

The chicken sandwich was great, the mahi sandwich was great - and we're pretty picky eaters. We wanted to sit at the bar, but we became lunch for the mosquitoes, so we moved out back. Which was on the bay with a water view, so bonus!

We also tried the local guavaberry colada. Yum!

Closed on Tuesdays.

We were visiting the island on a cruise and were brought here by our tour guide. There were only a few other people there when we arrived. The service was friendly and quick. I was able to try two things I had not had before (ox tail and Johnny cakes) and they were both very good. The prices were a little higher than we expected for a small place on the side of the road, but not unreasonable for being on an island.

Came here with my friend to have dinner and a drink. We both got passionfruit margaritas (so good, and our bartender did not skimp on the alcohol!!) and I got the Mahi Mahi fish with fried plantain and rice n peas, my friend got oxtail with Johnny cakes and potato salad... we both loved what we got. Very tasty! And we loved our server Camesha! (If that’s how you spell it)

Walked by looking for a new place to eat dinner. We were invited in and the place was very welcoming, positive, and friendly. Hostess took me by the hand and walked us to the dining area. We had a few choices for tables to sit at. The server came over immediately and took our drink orders. Food and service were great.
