If you're into beautiful sunsets and quiet dock bars overlooking beautiful water, sailboats etc, this is your place. Funky, fun, and not full of 20 year olds doing shots, this is my favorite place on the island. Local bear is $32, and the food is...More

I went there last time and they have a real aquarium in the middle of the restaurant. Dado the owner is very nice and his stuff do a great job. Ask for Gifiti you will love it!
