Fodor's Review

You want rustic? Furniture might be a tree stump, decoration a cow horn; tablecloths are raw burlap. The floor is dirt. In the bar hang vintage license plates from French Canada, the U.S., and the Netherlands. The food served up by chef-owner Juan Alberto is flavorful and authentic, with seafood a specialty of the house. Try langoustines (baby lobsters) and lambi (conch), pulpo (octopus), land crab, and fillet of fresh, fresh fish. And Juan goes that extra mile, past the ubiquitous creole sauce. It's cheaper and even more fun if you come with a group. Make a party and Juan will hire the musicians.
