Great little place overshadowed by some of the more generic tourist offerings near by. We had grilled fish and jerk chicken, really tasty and served by lovely people!

Friendly people, delicious food and strong rum punch - what more do you need? The BBQ ribs were super tender and tasty, fries crispy, and garlic shrimp delicious. Two for one happy hour was also quite nice.
