The food was ok, small portions, but not terrible. The tables have paper on them to write on with crayons which is fun for kids. The service was fine.

We spent our last day on the island taking in as much sunshine as possible and then a little shopping for last minute souvenirs. We were seated immediately, but after 10 minutes I had to find the manager to track down our server. The service...More

One of the few decent restaurants in the neighborhood so i suggest making a reservation to avoid the wait for a table. The food was well cooked and the service was quick & friendly. The ambiance is loud and it feels a bit like a...More
