We visited the bar on a few evenings while staying locally, always a very pleasant welcome, good cold beers, and nice seating area to the front. Highly recommended. Food served also but we didn’t have time during our stay to try it out.

There are few things I appreciate more on vacation abroad than local cuisine at an unassuming hole in the wall type of place. We stopped in for lunch and I tried one of the island’s staple meals, fried flying fish with macaroni pie and my...More
