Thank you. Sunday = roast pork. Triple X. Rum sprite. Wow. I have had dreams of this food. Don't tell your friends about this place, and arrive early. Book ahead actually. Good people, better food. Thanks RJz

Ate there twice and didn't leave hungry. Basic menu (steaks/burgers/chicken fingers) and fresh fish. Plenty of tasty sides. You won't regret it. They will also deliver to Alton's across the street which is nice as it can be crowded. Open Wed/Fri/Sun.

We went on a Sunday night when they roasted a pig. You get a lot of food for the money you pay. It was tasty and the place was packed. It is definitely a popular location for Sunday night dinners!!

Apart from the absolutely delicious food, I actually made a good friend... RJ himself! While enjoying drinks together, I saw him work his magic on the grill, tasted shrimp, lobster, and steak (not all in one sitting, mind you... because each plate is a GENEROUS...More

We ate here twice and loved it both times - our favourite restaurant on the island!! Fresh seafood, huge portions and just a fun atmosphere. Great place to refuel after a day of diving.

Food is good, but this is not fine dining. It is good wholesome food at an amazing price. Check the sides, I wasn't too keen on some of them.
