Absolutely fabulous restaurant. The food was really tasty and presented artistically pleasing both my eyes and my tastebuds. The restaurant was super clean including the bathrooms. Staff was friendly and very on the ball drink glasses barely emptied before a refill is offered.

We really enjoyed the mojito there, we ordered the lobster- it was ok but nothing spectacular, my friend had some fish which was very well cooked. From our table we could see really cute curly tail lizards walking around:)

You do not need to reserve but it can get busy and fill up fast as it does not have a lot of tables. It is a great restaurant and the prices are reasonable. We really enjoyed it. Have fun!
