The seafood is wonderfully prepared and very tasty. The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely and the staff is very pleasant. I liked how secluded the restaurant is.

Came here for dinner during the off season. Quaint spot, with only few tables inside. The restaurant was mostly empty, with only few tables being occupied. We wanted to sit at the end of a long table and were allowed to. I believe the owner...More

Thanks for your comment and I’m happy that you had a decent experience. The fried Flounder actually was a fried Red Snapper. We always tell our guests the prices if they are interested. Most people aren’t because it is widely known that we are one...More

Authentic fish restaurant, owner-managed with personal attention. Great food (recommend lobster) and a worthwhile experience. The unlit, unmade streets of StJohns can be a bit daunting to a European but it is much safer than first impressions. Take a taxi!

Loved this place. Lively ambience and made to feel welcome. Waitress suggested options to eat, food and drink was excellent. Good value for money and would most certainly visit again.

Overcooked fish, non-attentive staff. No mention of "cash only" until after attempting to pay with a credit card, then took the cash and never returned with the change. Must have known their service didn't merit a tip. Just wanted out at that point, I expect...More

Had dinner here two nights ago. Staff were friendly but not attentive. I had the seafood bowl. The shrimp was excellent. The fish a bit overcooked. Wouldn't go back.

Authentic Caribbean restaurant hidden in St Johns impresses everyone with the freshest seafood on the island. Great choice of food, complemented by the powerful local rum punch!! A def must do.

Very cozy but great environment. There was a gentleman that took our order and even provided recommendations. Great food and you must try the Ti Punch - sip slowly as they are not shy with their alcohol. The seafood platter was very tasty and flavourful...More
