Interesting local spot to visit. Touristy with outside market of art, food and drinks. Water activities for rent and fish food available to buy to feed the tarpon, seagulls and local fish from their docks. The kids had a blast.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn attached to this restaurant and loved it. Value for money, superb food, drinks and service and the location and views from the bar are second to none, anywhere. We’re coming back for two weeks next year.
