“Hilariously bad”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

Waited ages to be served both drinks and food despite only two others eating and three in the bar area.

I ordered tuna with salsa which was they admitted was overcooked ("sorry it was frozen and its hard to cook pink") and without salsa. I asked for something to go with the dry tuna. The cook came over and poured strawberry syrup over the fish.

Yes, strawberry syrup.

The man in charge first tried to say this was some new taste experience but eventually gave in. He was pleasant enough but much more interested in drinking with his friends at the bar than running a business.

He only charged us for a few drinks in the end but I wouldn't have even done that.

For God' sake steer clear.

“Better places to visit”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

Being a regular to the Holetown area it was good to see a new bar opened, but trying to order a drink with the owner singing and dancing in front of you was off putting. The kitchen area is part of the bar with a BBQ being used as the main cooker and once a party of 8 arrived to eat we left as we did not want to smell of their orders. Did not return as drinks were overpriced and better value offered else where.

Tiny little place, fantastic staff, amazing food, the red snapper was great. Spent some time talking to the manager expat from the US. All in all one of the best experiences we had on the island
