My husband and I both had the skirt steak and Guacamole based in other TripAdvisor tips. We were not disappointed! It was fabulous and the bread they serve was amazing. We plan to go back and try the tuna which is another recommended dish.

We ate dinner here with our two teenage kids. We had a lovely table in a beautiful tropical setting. We each tried something different and each dish was even better than the last! We highly recommend this place! You will not be disappointed!!

We stayed at Korrigan Lodge and this gem of a place was a short walk away. We had dinner there two nights. Both nights, the food was very delicious. The only downside is it is quite expensive. Great service & cozy atmosphere. Good drinks, too.
