I had one of the house specials (something with fish) and it was delicious. Great service and friendly staff. Would recommend.

Had walked past this place a couple of times, needed somewhere to eat with air conditioning so this was the winner. Food was great, in particular the Conch Fritters (Appetizer) were excellent, good varied menu.

Great little restaurant we have drove past here several times on each visit and finally stopped and so glad we did. I had the Lobster quesadillas and my husband had the Caramba crunch they were both great. His fish was definitely the best the seasoning was amazing!

We found this place on our second to last day here so we only ate here twice. Great service, great food, large menu and good prices. It seemed to be a favorite of the expats. Not on the beach, but also not a tourist trap.

I ordered coconut shrimp with fries which also came with a pineapple dipping sauce. Very good. Very fresh. Make sure to try the sauce with the shrimp. My wife ordered a fried chicken sandwich and it was just average... no complaints. We paid $60bz/$30USD. It is priced a little higher than some other places but the atmosphere is better and... More

It looks like they are competing with the restaurant across the way over customers. It was one of few Air conditioned restaurants. The bisque special was not what I expected but still good.

I was a little put off by the selling aspect - someone on the street trying to get you in the door. But we ordered a few drinks and the crab stuffed jalapeño and all of the above were great! Given all the food options i think this restaurant knows they have to step up their game above the others.... More

Very good restaurant right in the heart of town with good menu selections for lunch and dinner. We visited for lunch and the tacos I selected were very delicious. Hubby had a sandwich and our drinks were good. All in all a very good restaurant. Bar is small, and with lower ceilings, dim lighting, and a so-so ambience it does... More

I had the Lobster a la Caramba, probably the best decision I ever made in my 24 years of being alive. That thing and sauce was so good I wanted to lick the lobster shell when I was finished because they took my plate before I could. 😢😢 I also had the jalapeño Margarita... it was cool. But that lobster..... More
