Thank you, Ricardo, for your review. The dog you mention, is my personal dog: she is locked on the verandah of my personal quarters and usually does not even bark unless someone tries to take too close a peek at my quarters or tries the locked door handle.... I live alone and, as a woman in business, I feel it... More

Food was very good and the service was good an overall very good dining experience. I like the location nestled in a quaint secluded area of a busy town away from everything.

Celebrating my boyfriends birthday i emailed for reservations and was accommodated in the best seat in the restaurant. Seriously it was soooo beautiful. Dinner was delish and I loved the fact that Eva the owner came over to chat with us! The birthday singing had my boyfriend for a loop and he was very surprised. I will definitely be back!

Beautiful view of Ocho Rios, every portion of meal was great from hot bread, soup, salad, and pork medallion with penne pasta cream sauce Fantastic. Dessert was great as well couldn't bet the meal. Service was good. If you want a nice night out with dinning and a view you cant beat.

I had the beef tenderloin, potatoes, mixed vegetables and it was cooked to perfection and very tender. I would very much recommend eating here. Sweet potato cake was awesome.
