This restaurant was highly recommended and was really tasty! I had the best grouper I have eaten in years. The ambience was incredible. I was with a friend but wish I would have had my wife with me because it was a great place to take a wife or date.

Stopped by here on a busy Saturday afternoon for lunch last week. I had the Mahi mahi sandwich and my husband had the mahi mahi salad. Both were delicious, there were lots of families here and the prices seemed moderate.

Architecturally interesting shopping/eating complex in Cruz Bay. HGTV (or similar channel) ran a show about this place because it is architecturally so interesting. Constructed of materials and design evocative of old colonial St. John structures e.g. the sugar mills - stone, mortar and embedded shells - just walking through is a treat in itself.
