This restaurant is perched on a hillside edge overlooking the green forests below and the ocean off in the distance. The views alone made the trip worthwhile. We ordered the fish tacos and had to take a picture of the dish before eating to capture the beautiful presentation. The flavors lived up to the presentation. As if the views were not enough, there is a beautiful garden to explore as well. Well worth the trip!

You might almost miss this place as you drive past on the main road, as it's pretty unassuming from the front, but the food is delicious, the service was excellent, and the view down into the bight and down the island is unparalleled. Dining is outdoors, with both open air and covered options. Prices are also extremely reasonable (far below what you'd pay near the cruise ports). Be sure to grab a seat cushion from the stack on your way in.

My group of 8 had dinner here one night on the deck overlooking the island and water. Terrific view and great place to watch sunset. The menu has good variety, and everybody liked their meal. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Casual open air restaurant with a great hilltop view. The fish tacos were great, as was the chips and salsa appetizer (unique homemade chips). A couple notes before you go... they only take cash, and call ahead to make sure they are open as their schedule is somewhat limited.
