One of the only places open late for food and drinks on the island. Hungout here on our last night with a bunch of friends we met that day. Good drinks on a large outdoor covered deck.

Got a prawn dish which was $14 USD, prawns were small and it came with dry beans and rice and a very boring cold pasta salad. The place is run down and not very clean or nice. Wouldn't recommend it.

The restaurant is not really pretty although it could be. The food is average. I had fish in coconut sauce and I couldn't taste any coconut unfortunately. My boyfriend had fish in the peanut sauce and it wad average as well. It's a place that you go to to get full, not to enjoy really.

We tried the lobster tails and piña colada! THE HEAVEN! the order was taken/served really fast. It's a place in front of the beach easy to access. If you are in Bastimentos do not hesitate!

On the waterfront in Basimentos, you can get a water taxi to drop you and collect you from their own dock.

The staff were friendly and cheerful and the Caribbean style food is decent but not amazing. Possibly a little over-priced - mains around 12 dollars - but the octopus ceviche was only 5 dollars. A bottle of beer is 2 dollars. Yes it's a little ramshackle but that is part of it's charm. And the setting, sitting out over the water watching the boats go by and soaking up the local ambience, is fantastic.
