Nice food value for money. It was a bit of a storm when we visited but Jules (I think his name was) looked after us sorted out a fresh cooked meal even through the power was going off and on and not too pricey. i would eat there again.

Can't go wrong with this local haunt. Great food, cozy environment, and live entertainment will make your experience memorable. Julian was a fantastic host and took care of us with delicious ribs and fish. Definitely worth the stop for lunch, sunset, and beyond!

The conch stew and rice and peas were well, sort of revelatory. I will definitely return next time I'm on the island.
