The bar is so well stocked I was amazed. Highlights were a rum from peanuts ... don't ask, just taste it.

The fish was better than expected and there is a peanut rum that was delicious. It is situated next to a lovely stream and you can sit outside.

How many bottles of the old soak does this man have? I tried as many as I could honest. I just couldn't get through them all. I need to go back for a whole week.

I was surprised by this place. I expected nothing and ended up with a great fish meal and a good chat with the owner Trevor.

What a place to eat! I am confident in saying that there are not many places such as Poonkies. There is no menu as per se, but just what the chef cook on the day and it is always delicious!

Poonkies is an off the beaten track place, but it is beautiful with stone features and big wooden tables cut from mango trees. It is about 5 minutes from Portsmouth and 10 minutes from Picard. Just keep going past "Purple Turtle Beach" and you will...More
