This is not a fancy restaurant, but the food is excellent. The cuts of beef were very high quality and cooked just as ordered. I had the NY Strip and it was around 12oz. Prices were reasonable and the service was friendly.

Something I learn..."YOU CAN ALWAYS CALL IN ADVANCE". No matter what you want to eat, for you or if you are with your family, you can call and it's ready "IN 25 MINUTES", no matter how big the order. Even if you're dine in you can do it, I always do it and never have to wait hungry again. Ask... More

This is a very popular local restaurant. They have awesome local food, such as mofango, goat stew and chicken soup. Their skirt steak is very tasty. If you are visiting and want some "real" local cuisine be sure to stop in.

El Sol has some of the best food on island. The grilled chicken breast with baked potato is one of my favorite dishes! I recommend El Sol to anyone! Love it!

Many people swear by this restaurant. I have not yet found that dish that appeals to me - most of the time, my meat is dry and overcooked. I've been here 3 times...probably won't return.

The food is excellent and presented in a simple format. You are not paying for flare and you are not going to get it. They are loved in the community and can be very busy at lunch and dinner. It is worth the wait and if the environment doesn't suit you, get it to go.

I'd heard positive referrals of anyone I asked and I am sorry I just didn't make the time to stop before! It's kind of out of the way, between Castle Coakley and Sion Farm for the most part. Parking is simple and you have choices for either side and the shoulder across the road. They don't waste a lot of... More
