“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We went to this restaurant during the late lunch hours and had the three course lunch menu. The food was divine, my husband had the stew goat and I had seafood, from the bread to the desert everything was delicious. Please try their banana cake and the coffee for desert. The coffee was the local popular coffee house coffee. The staff that catered to us was very nice and respectful. I enjoyed the historical paintings on how the island looked before tourism replaced some of the landmarks. This will be one of my favorites for years to come....

The seafood was excellent. A little pricey though , but not too bad. The wait staff was very attentive. They made you feel as if you were their only customer. Highly recommended.

“Worth a stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

This was such a great experience. I had the lobster special which was good. We had the calamari started which was really good. The service was very good. Many locals order carry out so you know the food is good. They do run great specials so always ask about this. It is a good idea to make reservations. You can make them online from their web site. They are good about responding quickly.

“Great lobster!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

I know some of the reviews are less than stellar, but we did not experienced any of the problems we read about. We both had the lobster thermidor and it was plentiful and cooked to perfection. I had a mango daiquiri that was excellent. The prices were very good. The restaurant is small and reservations are a must. I recommend sitting inside. You'll need the air conditioner.

“Best dinner yet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

So! We've been on the island for 5 days on our honeymoon and have tried many different restaurants. We found blue lobster through trip advisor and gave it a shot. This was the most amazing dinner. I had the Lobster Thermidor and my wife had the Garlic Pan-Fried grouper. We couldn't get enough. Both were recommended by our waiter Franswa, he was great and knew exactly what he was talking about. Perfect dinner, will be back soon!
