Conveniently located but the minute you walk through the gate you'll feel like you are in a remote rainforrest. Trevor was an amazing host, bar tender, chef and decorator extraordinaire. Loved the stories he shared about his world travels and art - we ruly felt like guests in his home and the food was great.

The Watermelon Cottage is simply stunning. You are immersed in the rainforest, while being served excellent food and drink. And to top it off, Trevor, the owner is wonderfully gracious. So good that we're going back again during our visit. Jackie O

This place was AMAZING! The owner was so sweet and really set the tone for a romantic evening. We were on our honeymoon and it was our 3rd day on the island. Do not miss this place! It is gorgeous and the food is delicious! Make sure to call ahead for a reservation.

Eating dinner here is like eating in the middle of a rain forest. The food was excellent but the service was a little slow. However when you're eating out with your Significant other speed should not be a concern.
