Let's start with the positive. This is a cute place, set back from the road, with an open-air atmosphere and the sweetest and most polite resident dog you will ever meet. An artist, whom I presume is local, has quite a few lovely paintings displayed...More

Just by chance, we ran into a couple staying across the street that said (a) this restaurant was a pain to get to and (b) that it was worth it. True on both counts. Use Google Maps and order anything on the menu. You will...More

Went here with or family during vacation. This along with others was a restaurant we planned to see ahead of time. Incredible atmosphere in the jungle, with the chance to see a great sunset! Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend!

6 of us enjoyed cocktails and a sunset on the top deck. Then we went to our table on our own deck which felt like a treehouse. We had the sampler appetizer and I enjoyed the skirt streak. Dinner was yummy but the real treat...More

Perfect place to celebrate my birthday.....the singing waitresses made the evening perfect...delicious red snapper and lobster with pasta entrees. Great rum selection. Symphony of crickets in their lush gardens all thru dinner. We are going back.

Excellent food, gorgeous setting, very laid back atmosphere, beautiful landscape, we were there at night and were lucky enough to witness a thunderstorm. The waitresses put on quite a show for a birthday celebration!! Somewhat hard to find, I would suggest taking a cab!!

Situated on the edge of the Rainforest Bananas is casual fun dining in a magical setting. We take our food very seriously but it is good home cooking prepared by hard working local ladies, not fancy or Gourmet.. However our menu is very creative and we use only fresh ingredients and where possible free range organic produce and meats. We have Magnificent Sunset views from our Firefly lounge and a superb selection of cocktails and old rums and a small selection of cuban Cigars.
