    Server gave excellent service and he definitely added to the quality of our experience. Menu was limited. Fish tacos had good flavor but not enough mahi mahi. Only one chunk of fish that filled half the tortilla. This was try for ALL three fish tacos, so pretty skimpy for $26!

    My fish tacos were way overcooked. My husband’s poke bowl was excellent. Service on the slow side even though not crowded

    Food was good, drinks were so-so. The staff were friendly and helpful with recommendations. The atmosphere was amazing. One of the best open air beach restaurants right in one of the best beaches.

    Excellent food at the best view on the island. I enjoyed my meal and got my best sunset photos here. Moderate prices for excellent food. Cocktails are fabulous as well. See you next time!
