We had lunch here. The menu is very limited but the food we got was good. The view is the reason to go there. The service was good although not very friendly. They have limited hours for lunch/dinner so make sure to check prior to heading out.

My husband said after our last meal there, it was one of the best meals we have had on the island. The views are... More
