Fodor's Review

Dining on the deck here with the gentle breeze blowing, you feel as if you’re actually aboard a yola (a small, local fishing boat). The menu, which has always had Mediterranean and Caribbean influences, has been contemporized and given an Italian accent by a new chef. Seafood dominates the menu (you'll also find meat and chicken selections). Soups are exceptional and are offered in small and large portions, as are the appetizers, pastas, and salads. Main courses, including the catch of the day—usually red snapper, grouper, or dorado (mahimahi)—are artfully prepared and presented. Most side dishes are extra but worth it. As always, service is professional and attentive. Two prix-fixe options are available, as is an expanded kids' menu. What does come up short are the desserts—there aren't enough of them. Happy hour remains popular.
