When in season they make a great tapas. Local food can be heavy so a reasonable alternative. Nice to chill out on the stools streetside watching the world go by. Deals on beer etc too

Good Food, the food takes a long time to come out, service at the bar is pretty quick. I ate there few times and I was never let down.

They have a great burger here, worth the wait (and there will be one) but who cares? Your on island time now. Cheap beer, good local hangout and the patrons and bartenders are friendly.

Food was awesome, and very cheap. We loved the local vibe the place had and the service was really quick. If we're ever in Laborie again I know where I'll be headed

We ate there 2 different meals: fried chicken and fresh fish. The chicken was ok but the fish wasn´t cooked all the way. When we told them they didn´t really care. Go to Mama Tilly´s. It is better and tastier there

Nice place in the village of labirie, little loud music and lits of locals. Food was consistently good and reasonably priced, they do takeout, but not much local chat which you eould get if you went to mama tillys. Nice enough though. Recommend.

Ate here three times -- loved every meal. Delicious, affordable and prepared and served with great friendliness by the staff. Don't miss Thursday karaoke night (though we made local friends on every visit).

This was our second time at this restaurant since visiting last July. It is a MUST stop! Wings and wedges are great but if you want local food try the fish...the provisions are unique and delicious! The beer is cold and great prices. Thursday's is karaoke night which is priceless!!! The DJ's who supply music are some of the best... More
