We love eating here as a family when we are in Florida. It has such a relaxed island vibe. The menu is very reasonable and the cocktails are amazing.

What a great place. The mahi fish tacos were amazing!! They came with plantains in a pieapple/coconut sauce that was delicious. I loved it.

Few restaurants live up to the memory of a favourite dish. I still delight in the Abu Tuna Tacos. I love sitting on the upstairs balcony & watching the world go by. The deserts are always fantastic & staff are always great!
