This restaurant is on a beautiful stretch of ocean, and it is very pretty. We especially enjoyed feeding the cats on the property. My son and I had shrimp skewers, which were very good if not of generous portions. Drinks were great. The drawback is that it is very expensive for what you get.

We were looking forward to this well reviewed restaurant. Disappointed that it fell short. This is a seafood place that only had one fish on the menu Mahi-mahi. Our kids were with us and they ended up with pasta and were shocked to see them combine plates when they wanted to take leftovers home. Dessert was grilled pineapple and ice... More

We stayed next door at Casa Bonita and ate here every night. We spent each night having supper meals and drinks as we watched the sunset. The restaurant staff were friendly, and took very good care of us each night and made sure food was PERFECT. Cant wait to see Angel and Louis again in December.

Mahi fish tacos were great! Cold beer and the guacamole was very good. Quiet and an amazing view and good service. Can't go wrong with this hidden gem.

Went and had lunch today and were the only people there.... which was sad and surprising because the food and service were amazing. Will 100% be heading back and hanging out on their beach.

This side of the island is lovely, and the ambiance of the restaurant is really nice. The oysters were fresh and good. The food overall was good, but not great.

I have eaten here several times and have experienced excellence and flat out awful? Even with the new owners of this place the lack of consistency remains.

Over two years, we have had three dinners at this small beachfront hotel and restaurant. Service is most friendly and food very good, though it's a limited menu. Excellent fish, well prepared. However, sadly, they appear to keep their inventory of wines at a bare bones level, thus, were given a sample sip - which was great - but could... More

My husband and I went for dinner and the sunset. My mojito was very good and the catch of the day could not be better. The cliff view towards the west makes the view of the sunset spectacular.

We had a very nice meal here aND I decided to try the lobster. An indulgence, but it was something I'd planned to treat myself too while on the island. Served with a rice dish it was nicely presented in the shell.
