We had a nice late lunch with great service. I really enjoyed the lobster ravioli while my husband liked the fish and chips. We sat outside and enjoyed the beach view and all the activity there.

First night on the island and we ate here for my wife's birthday. Very busy but we got a table in minutes. Waiter was very friendly. Food came out very quick even though it was busy. Food was delicious. Views were amazing.
