    Light pan-seared fish with banana salsa is the best. Light fare. There's a story behind the massive exhaust fan in the middle of the restaurant.

    We loved this place so much, we visited twice on a recent trip. Lobster Mac, yes. The Chicken & Waffles also amazing.

    Don't believe the hype about this place. Fish is fresh, yes; but the dishes are incredibly mediocre & bland (including the infamous lobster mac), and not cheap.

    great place, great service. Not your cookie cutter tourist restaurant. Sit outside. The appetizer trio (shrimp, ceviche, and lobster Mac n cheese) was my fav.

    Off the beaten path, thank goodness! Tuna watermelon ceviche was delicate and light. Hogfish with banana salsa just right. Everything was perfect down to broccoli filled muffins. 5 stars, a new fave!
