Really enjoyed our meals here. The service was fast and the food was very nice. Not badly priced either. Great bar and outdoor dining areas. Was so nice we visited twice.

Smaller portions than I would like. Burger was small. Fries were a bit on the mushy side. Pork and chicken tasted good but portions were small. Fried breadfruit was good.
