The chef does create quite a few specials each day and these are worth experimenting with. Location is OK but not great if you want a view - so better for dinner than lunch - easy to get to location and quite a large restaurant...More

Went for dinner frequently, because the food was good with a varied and changing menu. Not gourmet food but excellent cooking of Italian classics. Not a pizza palace. Price typical of that neck of the woods. Also a famous night spot nearer midnight. Good atmosphere,...More

Good atmosphere, nice staff and the prices were within what we expected for an island bar. We arrived before the crowds so we had the perks sure of sitting and taking in a sunset.

I make my reservations a couple of days in advance. From my view point I do not go to the Caribbean for pork. I tend to order local fishes prepared with an Italian/Caribbean flair. They also make a lot of pasta/veggie dishes... More
