We came here to try the lobsters in coconuts sauce recommended by our local dive guide. As it's highly recommended by local, we both ordered the same dish, and the result was a bit disappointing. Maybe because we expected too high, so when the surprise...More

Great spot to eat. You can eat here economically, too. I think I paid $5 for chargrilled chicken, beans, and rice, although one night, I had lobster for $20. In the evening time is the time to go. He's not open all the time, but...More

I had eaten a few dinners in the kiosks area and this was by far the best. But if you are looking for a $10 dinner, you won't find it here. I had the lobster in coconut sauce with rice and loved the taste, texture,...More

This kiosk spot came highly recommended. Everything is in a coconut curry sauce, which is mild and delicious, no overpowering curry or coconut taste. It comes with rice and beans. Add beer and you enjoy a delicious dinner for 2 - $30.

This restaurant in the Kiosks area is typical of them all. Fresh fish with rice, potatoes and salad, plus cocktails and beers.

We had read and heard how fantastic this spot was and were both really disappointed with the coconut shrimp we had here. They were dry and hardly any coconut sauce with them. Highly over-rated.

It's like a street food joint....with a small kitchen and most of the seating outdoors. It's a couple of blocks inland (off the main street where most of the "nicer" restaurants are). The food is excellent, fresh and cheap. ($15 for a pair of lobster tails).
