The food is authentic, delicious, and beautiful (good foodie pics). The staff is very friendly, and really knows the menu. The vibe is amazing...feels like going to a relatives house for dinner

This was our favorite place to eat in the island. My wife enjoyed her chicken kabobs and I had the evening seafood special and it was great. Can't wait to go back in November for our next visit.
