Right around the corner from the Inn we stay at year after year. Food is always good, service is quick and the local patronize this place a lot. Can't go wrong.

Went to the Fisherman's cafe with the other half. It is a very small place to get really good eats. Ordered the Lobster Tacos with plantains. Yummy is all I can say! A good place to people watch while you dine.

Best fish tacos I have ever had! Order the mahi tacos with the fish blackened. And the yucca fries! It's just a little roadside shack, not a restaurant, and the food is delicious. Friendly staff. Great location right off the seaport. The only reason it...More
