The woman/owner can make a hell of a cocktail (don't drive afterwards) but her cooking-skills are not the best. So enjoy the view with a drink.

This is a good restaurant in the middle of Arikok, with delicious food and great atmosphere. Enjoy your meal with a nice breeze - they have stone cup holders and menus on wood so they won't bow away! The staff is friendly, and the fish was fantastic.

We stopped here on our UTV ride through Arikok National Park. The restaurant was a much needed oasis and was in a great location. Given the remoteness, it has a unique feel and look being in the 'desert' yet near the ocean. The menu was great with lots of food and drink options. The staff was wonderful. Prices were pretty...

We have been here four times in four years, very unique location. Off the beaten path but the food is fantastic. We had fresh snapper on the grill which was cooked to perfection. A beautiful oasis!

First of all, the food and service were both great. The views are nice, though the surrounding area is exquisite. It is very remotr. The road in is a bit of a stretch so be extremely careful. It is a bit tacky to have bathrooms available to customers only and then to ask the customers to pay an extra dollar... More

This is a great stop while on your way through the national park. The view is pretty. I thought the food was pretty good and we were starving so it was a good quick bite to eat. The service is not very nice. We heard the bar tender speak poorly about some of the customers in Spanish while they were... More

First of all if you hanging out at the national park all and this is the only place with a bathroom then you a bound to end up here. They will not let you use the bathroom unless you make a purchase. At this point most do not have a choice. Food is ok .

I am not a spoiled person when it comes to food, I like pretty much anything and rarely dine in high-end restaurants. But other than a rather special setting, there is nothing special about this place. Food was mediocre at best at prices that could not be justified. The food wasn't even fresh. On top of that, staff was not... More

Found this little island restaurant in the middle of the National Park! Friendly service great food, please take the time to stop and have a beer, frozen cocktail, snack or full on meal, it is worth it. The BBQ snapper was excellent, the shredded chicken with gouda was delicious, they top it off with complimentary cookies all with a beautiful... More

The food was average, not the best. Stay away from the fish sandwiches, they were expensive and all bun no fish. The staff were friendly. When you enter the park, let them know you are visiting the restaurant or they make you pay a fee. The restaurant has a great view of the ocean.
