A not-to-be-missed restaurant! Small, and extremely busy...make sure to reserve beforehand. I had the roast duck...amazing. The portions are very generous (including the cocktails!). Staff is terrific and knows their menu. We will certainly go back many times!

You will enjoy a good meal, decently prepared but not exceptional. Prices are about 20% less than higher quality restaurants in town. We enjoyed our meals--Lamb and fish, with abundant sides. What stood out the most was the amazingly large piece of coconut cake served...More

It is a very small restaurant, limited seating inside, more seating outside. The menu choices are incredible with a wide variety & specials. Prices are unbelievably low & the portions are large & delicious. Have tried at least 8 entrees, from pork chops to salmon....More
