Loved this restaurant, everything was so fresh and delicious. It is a very small and intimate restaurant with charming service and a spectacular view. Cannot fault a single detail. Highly recommend any of the fish dishes. Can't wait to come back.

We stayed at this resort and had a number of meals at this restaurant. Although the menu choices are limited what is on offer is very good. We also had many cocktails here and highly recommend happy hour.

We were expecting to see more local choices on the menu. What we ordered was good, but not better than elsewhere on the island. The service was excellent.
