We visited several places on the island and this was best place to eat. It was also the most expensive but worth it. We ate here on Fathers Day and it was great. I highly recommend.

Fabulous shrimp and fish. The tuna was awesome as well. Very nice staff with our party of 5 even though they were busy they were attentive. I would go back but I always like the beach restaurants.

The patio by what I understand is for guest waiting to get seated or for those who do take out! Service, just a bar is on the outside patio. Hope this helps.
