The owner is an awesome bloke, friendly atmosphere and on more then one occasion went above and beyond to help me out. If you go to the island eating here is essential.

By far and away the best food on the island. Is probably the best food I've ever had in all honesty. Love the place, love the hosts.

I was quite courious about this restaurant because is (?) the only one managed by a non local proposing "more" international cuisine but I didn't eat very well. I took ribs that were not really well done and moreover covered by a sweet sauce that was too sweet. I believe to do not try it again

You will find this restaurant about half way from the harbour to the main beach, opposite the police station (and not far from Olly's).
