This is an unassuming place on the Frigate Bay strip that you can go right by without noticing. We had a great Mexican meal with nachos, fajitas, quesadillas and more. If you are putting in an order for margaritas ask for the *big* glass. Great...More

Great location right on the beach at the begining of "the strip." Food was decent considering you are having mexican food in St. Kitts. Probably a better place for beer and apps then having a full meal as their menu is limited.

Did not eat at all, but really enjoyed a friday-night-off-school happening for med and vet students. A really nice place with music to dance and enjoy. Good prices. Local and international beers. Very good Margaritas.

The nachos were really good. I had read other reviews saying how amazing the fish tacos and ceviche were, I would skip these items...much better spots for both these items.

Stopped in for a late dinner. People there seemed to be having fun. Dancing and drinking. The food was good. I had a quesadilla. I left my phone there on accident and when I called back about 20 mins later they said that they would...More

We ate here on a Friday evening and there were quite a few college students and a DJ who had the music up way too loud. No chance of having a conversation buy my wife was dead set on Mexican food. The service was quite...More
