My husband and I went here for a late lunch per a locals reccomendation. Food was very good. It was a good cultural experience to eat where the locals eat; we didnt really see many other tourists. Restaurant is right near the water.

I went to Sharkies to watch a soccer game at the bar. Drink prices were fair. I didn't eat but the food I saw looked amazing.

During a recent stay in JA I frequented this place on a regular basis. Good food and value for money and the cocktails were awesome. A visit is a must!

When I was there they cooked up a lobster for the guys working at the dive shop next door. We caught it on our dive. Anyone happen to know the name of the dive shop? I'd like to go back soon.
