I ordered coconut shrimp with fries which also came with a pineapple dipping sauce. Very good. Very fresh. Make sure to try the sauce with the shrimp. My wife ordered a fried chicken sandwich and it was just average... no complaints. We paid $60bz/$30USD. It is priced a little higher than some other places but the atmosphere is better and... More

Very good restaurant right in the heart of town with good menu selections for lunch and dinner. We visited for lunch and the tacos I selected were very delicious.

I had the Lobster a la Caramba, probably the best decision I ever made in my 24 years of being alive. That thing and sauce was so good I wanted to lick the lobster shell when I was finished because they took my plate before I could. 😢😢 I also had the jalapeño Margarita... it was cool. But that lobster..... More

Stopped in on a recommendation from someone who grew up on the island. We had an awesome blackened whole snapped. It was delicious. See the photo. We would highly recommend Carambas for dinner.

Try the whole fish or pulled pork. Great bar, air conditioning, kind service. You can also relax and watch underwater videos while you dine. I've eaten here many times, and it's highly recommended!
