Great food, excellent chef! Menu selection is very good and indoor (with open outside walls) and outdoor seating on the patio is available. I recommend making a reservation when you go.

Excellent staff and service. The fish tacos were the best I've had on the islands. My wife raved over the lobster salad and a pina colada. A must stop if ever in Spanish wells.
