Great Caribbean cocktails, friendly welcome, reasonable menu of local dishes and standards, up-stairs in a traditional 100 year-old house, right downtown. The food is not gourmet standard, but a pretty good offering against the local market, and reasonable value for money. If you get your...More

Nice little cafe serving local food. It’s on the first floor, try and get a balcony table for a spot of people watching. Good fresh fish, lobster, chicken wings, conch fritters etc etc. Friendly service and open for breakfast too. My 3rd visit.

We had fish burgers that had wonderful crispy coating and a nice little side salad. Place is very busy at lunch and especially when lots of cruise boats are in just a short distance from mooring.

In a wonderful, relaxed, fun atmosphere, complete with original art, dangling metallic fish, and a glorious veranda with sun and breeze we sat in complete awe! After an agonizing decision, we ordered the best conch fritters, crab, fish "burger" ever! OMG, it was amazing. I've...More

A very characterful place to have lunch from a balcony overlooking the street, watching the world go by. A very friendly welcome from the proprietor and efficient service. Food was well prepared and presented and flavoursome. Highly recommended.

Far from it! There's a set of very steep, long wooden steps which lead to the restaurant off the road. Very tricky.
