It's a few blocks off the beaten path nut not more than a 10 minute walk from the cruise terminal. Had conch fritters and plantain for an afternoon snack. Really enjoyable. Would visit again and recommend it. Seems to be a genuine local place.

We stopped here last month while we were in port. They were getting ready to close soon. However, they were more than happy to accommodate us. I would go there again if I am ever in town again.
