So glad that my husband and I were talking to a local, and he recommended this place! The minced fish was delicious. We were so glad that we got to meet Vivienne. The place is so unique, and the view of the water is beautiful!...More

Such a quaint restaurant! Great local food too; try the beef stew and tamarind juice. Turtle stew was not bad too. And the 2 hammocks in the restaurant are a great plus too! The waiter Patrice is amazing and the staff are so friendly too.

The view from the outside is beautiful, a patio looking out over the sea. The view from the inside is literally right into Ms. Vivine's kitchen (and if you stick your head in a bit further, to her living room). It's local, and genuine! We...More
