Their huevos rancheros was very good. And, you probably won't believe this, but the Bloody Mary I had was just about the tastiest I've had anywhere. Others in our party had the crepes and a unique version of French toast...all really good.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We stopped by the bakery near the airport, but this is not the restaurant, so the owner had to go to the restaurant and let us follow him to downtown Simpson Bay. It is not easy...More

Most places on the island take credit cards. Zee best restaurant I believe, takes cash only.
