We go here to see the sunset, have a glass of wine and listen to music. Its location is right on the beach and its a popular place. We don't choose to eat there but plently of others dol.

Nothing special. Food was okay, and warm. Found it odd that soft drink refills were not free. You can do better.

Had pancakes and fresh fruit. Service was great. Another customer started smoking a cigar and the server quickly put an end to that. Can't beat the location right on the beach. Very popular place with the locals. That tells you everything you need to know.

Beach shack cafe with convenience of food right at beachside. Walk up ordering with tables on the beach. Surprisingly large menu good for breakfast with full menu but all u can eat pancake offering. Quick service and friendly staff. Not gourmet but still well done.

Very busy place! The food is good and there's only so many places on the island that serve breakfast so that's why it was so busy!

Been coming here for years with my grandparents, this was their fave breakfast spot. Anytime I can dine near water I'm happy. Good basic fare and all you can eat pancakes.

If you're at the beach, there's nothing better than to be able to grab some food as well. This fits the bill perfectly. You're on a great beach, with full facilities (changing rooms and bathrooms), life guards and a bar. With a great view of...More
