We had a lovely meal here, good service. I like a place to have a little more of a romantic feel to it, when you are on holiday on a beautiful Island, this place was more basic.

We ate here on New years eve. The service was great and so was the view by the water. We had entree, main and desert. It was all good, but nothing special.

We stopped by here on our way back to our resort from shopping and we were just in time for happy hour. We met some friendly locals (Australians, Kiwis, British who have been living there for years), I sang a few songs with the entertainment for the night and we also got a complimentary shot from the bar! Great night... More

We had dinner here twice and loved it. The seafood special was a delicious plate to share and the staff was super friendly. There is live music which gives a fun and relax atmosphere.
