Went in for a bite to eat, as it over looks the street for people watching, The service was good, a nice mature lady was the owner and with care that must be family related, u could see that they care, was enjoyable

Nice place, very clean, very helpful and friendly staff. The menu was good, lots of sea food carribean style. Really good smoothies. A bit over priced but still a nice oasis in St John. Sit on the balcony.

Service can be slow, but food is worth it. Nice view of the street in the shopping district of St. Johns

Loved sitting upstairs here on a busy corner, sipping rum punch, watching the world go by. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. Right across from the shopping area in St John's.

I had the club sandwich and salad. Both were good. It is upstairs so you have a view of the traffic and local vendors. It is not in a very nice area but I felt safe. The owners are very nice and service was good....More

We bobbed in out of a rain shower-up the stairs to sit out on a balcony. I loved the decor and the atmosphere here. We stayed and had a couple of drinks, did some people watching and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's a real shame...More

Friendly staff, reasonably priced menu and a wide selection of soft drinks and beers. We received prompt service and the food was well cooked and presented. If we visit St. John's again we will certainly revisit this restaurant.

We visited after carnival. The staff were very welcoming and enthusiastic. Food was delicious and most certainly worth a visit. Also given a discount voucher for next time. Thanks!

This is a must visit. It is considered a Caribbean Restaurant, food is great. If you are a lover of escargot you should try it here. Chris our waiter was very polite and attentive.

Far from it! There's a set of very steep, long wooden steps which lead to the restaurant off the road. Very tricky.
