The rum punch is FABULOUS!!, be careful:). The chicken from the grill and fish were tasty and the location on the beach is perfect. Fun spot for a daytime visit.

The food is great, the drinks are great, the staff is great, Gwen is great but Scratch Band Sunday's are absolutely awesome. They start in the afternoon and run until early evening. If you are in Anguilla on a Sunday it is a must do!

I'm not a sandwich person, but decided to try the mahi-mahi sandwich. It was DELICIOUS!!! I asked for extra pasta salad and coleslaw and it was DELICIOUS!!! Ate here 2 times during my 8 days because I could walk down from Shoal Bay Villas.
