We were fortunate enough to have arrived on St John when this restaurant re-opened and took advantage of it twice. The food was so good from the soup to the main courses to the dessert. The chef/owner runs a great establishment, and the wait staff...More

Sorry, I don't eat oysters, but I'm guessing that's not a good deal!! We found better dining at that price point elsewhere on island. Service was excellent though.
