We only ate here once and had drinks a couple of times while visiting the beach. Beautiful location on the beach. The food was average.

A beautiful beach and we went for lunch ...didn't mind having to wait but the food was cold and it took forever! It was a disappointment. The poor waitress was stressed and very busy for one person.

Had supper here. Lobster meal was good. You have a beautiful view of the beach and water and sunset. Beers were cold.

This restaurant is in front of the beach on the south side. Although they have a great location, their customer service lacks quite a bit. The food was okay but not "wow" and it was highly priced. If the service had been better I would not have minded the prices but since it was slow and without a single smile... More

It rained a lot during our visit, but this place was a great place to sit under the bamboo hut and have beers and eat food! We brought cards and played as well! Great place to watch the locals play games as well!

Very nice and tranquil location! Best beachfront view IMO. food wise, satisfying but not gratifying. BIG portions (specially the pasta) price wise is a bit overpriced compared to others but for the view that it offers it makes it worth it. highly recommended specially for the location :)

This place is worth the taxi ride (all taxis are 20 correct, about 75 cents) to the southern part of the island. We had an array fid of the menu and everything was good. Quick prompt service. Highly recommend.

Since we got in this place the smell ga e me nausea and wanted to vomit. To tell you the truth I did not ordered anything from the menu. Nevertheless all my friends and family ordered and I was right-plates were awful and seafood did not smell fresh. Prices were surprisingly more expensive than everywhere else and they charge the...

Right on one of the most beautiful beaches of the island. Average quality of the food pretty good. Prices little bit too high and poor service. Personnel not very friendly and long wait.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant - being the only spot on the beach we didn't have high expectations, but it turned out to be our best lobster meal of the week! Two big lobster tails, served in an 'island style' sauce of coconut & chilli, with tostones (fried plantain) & rice. Excellent service & good drinks too.
