Nice clean restaurant but this was ne f ur least memorable experiences on the island. I was really looking forward to this place based on the reviews. I would say this place is average to below average. Much better choices on amberis caye

Small space (maybe 12-14 tables), suggest making a reservation and call in advance to get an outside table (no AC inside). Delicious curry, grilled fish, pulled pork taco appetizer. Staff was attentive and friendly. Would definitely return.
