The best beach food in St. Lawrence Gap. Our party of four ate here four times in seven days. The ribs were great but even better was the shrimp salad. Quirky servers added to the experience.

Washroom nearby was a nightmare so avoid it. Otherwise, service was friendly, food was tasty, beer was cold and the black cat and chickens were fun to watch.

Ate here for three evenings out of ten. The fish menu excellent along with the pricing. Situated in Lawrence gap amongst many bars & eateries, it was a treasure for good food and ambience in the evenings. Value for money and as goog as Oistins.

We ate here on our last day in The Gap, What a shame. The only reason it got a 2 was because when the food finally came it wasn't bad at all.
