This was the best meal I’ve had in the island by far! Arvid was super hospitable and treated us like family. I can’t wait to go back.

Here's the thing - we love eating at truly local restaurants and are willing to go out of our way to get to them. All hail TripAdvisor! This was definitely worth trying. We had the beef ribs, the Cajun beef and some of the oxtail....More

Not sure why its so highly rated for the island. Its totally not worth the trip if you are staying on seven mile beach. Ribs were a bit dry, but not terrible. Decent jerk chicken. Pretty bad fried plantains - were very thin and drier...More

Great food and pricing. Went there 3 times in a 2-week stay. The only thing I did not like was the fried fish. It was evident it was not fried fresh, but prepared ahead of time and then reheated = over cooked.

Our 1st time but not the last. We enjoy local restaurants on all the Islands we visit & this is another great find. Excellent food and great service we enjoyed eating outdoors under a large shade tree.

Awesome ribs, jerk chicken! Arvid(?) the owner was a very pleasant young man, actually sat down and answered all our questions about the island. Food was delicious, all fresh and well prepared. One of the cheapest meals we ate on the whole island, and one...More

What a great place off the beat path. The Cayman beef is something to be desired. Enjoyed trying the Stewed Turtle, very much like Chicken, the Baby Back Ribs are tender and full of flavor! Proprietor is very cordial and made a great meal even...More

This place is right across from The Wreck of the Ten Sail (which didn't look like anything to us - not worth the stop). He had just opened for the day but he still had everything ready! We weren't too hungry but had wanted to...More
