We are here whilst we were looking around in St Johns and were not disappointed in any way! The menu is traditionally Caribbean and the service was excellent. Curried shrimp and rice was totally delicious!

I have been here a few times for lunch and dinner. It's great for date night or a casual meet-up with friends. The food has been consistently good, and the prices are fair. The service is pretty good as well.

The restaurant is located just across the street from the cruise dock. The conch fritters were outstanding and the Hemingway drink is also a must try!

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