I had the crab roll and some nigiri sushi...all fresh, all delicious. The cocktails also very good, and the beach and ocean views could not be closer. Very pleasant dinner, and i hope to eat here again. Also reasonably priced on an expensive island.

Hello I do believe I saw high chairs, but I personally didn't ask for one, or have a cute toddler with me to have a need for one! There were families there, however, so I would assume they have them! :)
