Excellent food. From their fresh local seafood to their tamarind pork chops to even the most simple of local fare like chicken and rice... It was excellent across the board.

Local open air restaurant, looks like local family owned. Cute little place with tin roof. My shrimp scampi was the best I had. Large portions, large shrimp with salad and rice perfecto. Great casual dining with good fresh food.
