Nice old building with some indoor and outdoor seating. Some tables down by the water are a great spot for an afternoon drink.

The food was really good. The drinks were also. Hostess was a bit of a mess. She was nice to some guests that she clearly knew, but rather rude to us and another table.

The island has gone upscale in terms of places to dine and this place did not get the memo. Ordinary food, ordinary service and more expensive than it deserves.

This restaurant is well worth a visit, we ate here a few times in our stay the Ahi Tuna on ribbon noodles was exceptional, I would highly recommend it, all the seafood is fresh daily so any fish of the day will be delicious.

Unbelievable views of the harbor. The lunch menu has a nice selection. Service is slow at best. If you are interested in spending an afternoon, great place but otherwise would avoid

Thank Sginder
