Candles illuminate this tiny, beachfront, palm-lined dining room during the evening meal, making it one of the most romantic dinner settings on the island. Native-born Jost Van Dyke chef Dwayne Donovan keeps things interesting with five to seven entree and appetizer choices that change weekly and feature local flourishes like a passion-fruit demi-glaze. Don't miss the Painkiller ice cream, inspired by the Painkiller cocktail created here. For lunch, if you can find your way through the throngs ordering Painkillers at the bar, choices include mahimahi sandwiches, hamburgers, chicken roti, and conch fritters. Management has recently relaxed its reservations-only dinner policy, but it's still wise to call ahead.
