We went out for the night at this local place that was suggested from our host. The food was good and spicy. We had pork chops and jerk chicken. The ladies were happy with the drinks and the atmosphere was good.

We ate here 2 nights in a row. The 2nd night they cooked the Dorado that we caught that day! Highly recommend the red curry with fish and homemade Caribbean hot sauce for the rice & beans.

Stumbled upon this place and so glad we did. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Food was outstanding. Fish with red curry and coconut sauce was tasty as well as the mahi mahi special. Definitely do not miss this place.
