“Perfect place to eat”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

The service was good, not as great as Bili but they're diferent types of restaurants. The food was awesome and the prices are fair. The servers were nice but friendly. I would definitely eat again at this spot.

“Service was good, food was fine, it was all just okay”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We were a party of six for a weekend lunch. Our server was American, very friendly, and attentive. It seems to be an American run place, and the menu reflected that. There was a good selection of appetizers (like sliders), salads, sandwiches, and some hot dishes (like a grilled chicken and vegetable plate). Our mojitos were weak, but the food arrived fairly quickly. It was pretty standard American family-restaurant fare with a light owned-by-a-chef twist. The view out to the water was nice, but the prices seemed steep for a basic lunch (a plate of chicken with rice and veggies was about $16). The service was the high point, and everything else was just fine. Nothing spectacular, but nothing terrible, either.

“Great salad”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

This restaurant is located in Esperanza. Has a nice view of the ocean and great to go for the sunset. Had a really good salad with fish on top. Just what I wanted with a nice cool rum punch.

“Great service, good food, low key vibe”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

While Duffy's is an island institution the menu was more varied and interesting at bananas and you must have the hot bananas.

“Worn Out and Tired”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Something about this place has had it. The upper deck was hopping when I went a few years ago but it just looks like people aren't showing up. For good reason. The few wines available are poor. The food is unexciting but edible. The service is more geared to running back and forth than making sure you get what you need. Hope they can rebound.
