My wife and I celebrated her 70th birthday here for dinner. Excellent!! The price was very reasonable. She had a tuna plate loaded with vegetables; I had 2 pieces of swordfish loaded with vegetables.

We had the beef chop and chicken stroganoff. Price was reasonable, wait staff was very friendly and they had the best desserts of the islands.

Food is nothing special but ok. It is a bit between cafetaria and restaurant. It is alongside the road so pay attention when going there not to miss it.
