Nice place to visit and have something off the beaten track. Not extraordinary or special, a place where you can have a nice dinner. The place is fairly cheap compared to other restaurants

This restaurant was recommended to us by one of our dive guides and so glad we listened. Food is outstanding and reasonably priced. It's a little over a mile away from downtown so you can drive or walk there. Highly recommended for the wonderful service and flavorful food. I wish we had more time to go again.

My husband wasn't overly enamored, he had the fish in creole sauce which I thought was nice but he wasn't sure. I had the stuffed chicken with spinach and cheese which was fine a little over cooked but good and tasty. We both had ceaser salads and 1 drink each with desert. The cheese cake was good I had the...

Very friendly staff with outstanding food. Variety of beef, chicken, and seafood dishes. Sea food stew had thick hearty broth with abundant chunks of shrimp, calamari, and fish. Arroz con pollo was daily special and was fantastic. Fried plantains and yuca very good and not at all greasy. Food portions are large, so consider sharing one dish.

We had a pleasant evening with good food and enjoyed the authenticity of the place! Owners don't speak Dutch and that's very seldom on the island. Creole food from Columbian couple, top!

This place is way out of the way on a dirt road in a remote part of town. We ate here one rainy night. The woman who runs it speaks no English only Spanish but no worries. I had Red Snapper cooked with garlic and butter. It was very tasty. My wife had pork chops which were ok but very... More

There were 6 of us eating and we all had dinners that were excellent!! The owners didn't speak English but that just added to the homes style atmosphere. Didn't have any problems ordering though. We were on the island for a week and only went there 3 times. Great food, great prices and great portions. Thanks Steve

It's been a year since we were here last, not much has changed - not that it needed to. Great, friendly service and wholesome food. Everything we ordered was good, and prices are reasonable. Hope to come back next trip!

When we heard that Carlos's (our excellent dive master) family ran a restaurant and that another dive group RAVED about it, we knew we had to try it. Carlos wanted to pick us up and drive us there, but we assured him we could make the walk (about 25 min) and it was well worth it!. Amazingly extensive menu. I... More
