The food was great and you have a nice view of the ocean from the seating area. Staff was lovely and hospitable.
I would not recommend drinking the served tap water (we tried adding a freshly squeezed lemon, but it didn't help), but otherwise it's a quaint place to get a nice bite to eat.

Thank you for your review. I know what you mean about the water. We triple filter the water before serving. We also offer Fiji spring water for sale for those that prefer the taste of bottled water.
I'm so pleased you enjoyed our little Cafe on the Beach! Please come back soon.

My wife is not a big fish person. We split the red snapper. It was perfectly grilled and she loved it. I loved it also. Very good drink specials.

First off, this is no beach bar. We were a little thrown back by the inn's appearance that hosts it but it is worth it. The ocean side view is relaxing and the server was sincerely sweet and speedy. The food and drinks were ridiculously good. We ordered the coconut shrimp, tortilla soup, jalapeño hush puppies, and the fried snapper basket. I would reorder if I go back. Also our frozen drinks looked like deserts - so good. Plus they were fresh and you could see the bartender whipping them up in the blender and NOT dispensing them from some cheesy frozen machine that the beach bars use. Definitely recommend a visit.
