Ads trumpet that this restaurant is "where the islanders dine." Indeed they have since the Robinson family started selling takeout from its kitchen in 1965. This favorite overlooks a garden with a cheery tropic motif. The West Indies breakfast and themed lunch buffets are legendary spreads. Local food (curried goat, oxtail with broad beans, turtle soup, and heavy cake) is authentic, hearty, and cheap. Pricier global dishes range from chop suey to fine Indian vegetarian options like samosas and masala dal (lentils simmered with green chilies) to Eisenhower-era standards like bacon-wrapped filet mignon in red wine sauce.

This simple local restaurant is quite a favorite with the locals and it is obvious why. The food is inexpensive, fresh and delicious. Staff is beyond courteous and hospitable and the drinks are so reasonably priced that my companions and I could not help but enjoy every minute of our dining experience! There buffet has quite a variety of local dishes and the Turtle stew and the stewed whole Snapper was extremely good. I would recommend this restaurant
to anyone looking to enjoy true local cuisine at a modest price.
