Indoor and outdoor seating. Enjoyed the red snapper, manager offered additional fish since size was small that day. Though I thought the portions were good. One of our dining party had the shrimp roti, which they said was excellent. Another had a fish sandwich which...More

We had all sorts here, from Ducana with salt fish, steam snapper, pork pepperpot and lobster tail, it is a little pricey but we enjoy our meal and had a chicken roti to go, staff pleasant and could advise on what was nice

A great institution. We only had the conch fritters and am sorry to say doing the disappointing. I’m sure other dishes would have been better Still with a visit though

we had a group of 7 and the best thing we had was the chicken wing appetizer. We ended up spending $55 per person on a mediocre lunch and a couple of drinks. Do not recommend this place.

Far from it! There's a set of very steep, long wooden steps which lead to the restaurant off the road. Very tricky.
