Such an amazing meal here! I ordered the chicken curry from the specials for the day and it was beautifully flavoured. Standout meal of my trip so far!

The hype is real. In the past 20 hours, I've eaten here three times already. If it was any closer to lunch right now, I'd be going for a fourth time. Lunch: Fried conch, rice/beans Dinner: More fried conch, garlic butter fish Breakfast: eggs, sausage, bacon, fry jacks

I was here with my girlfriend a year ago. Dawn is an amazing cook, and the snapper is not to be missed. We ate here four times in five days, never disappointed. We ended up bringing home a dozen of the green hot sauce, we consumed it in less than a few months. We loved this place. Make a point... More
