Vivacious owners John and Marcia Punter literally hacked Montserrat's most elegant eatery from the rain forest. They poured a concrete floor and dressed it with a billowing, white, rectangular tent, pergolas, palm fronds, potted plants, hardwood chairs, jade hurricane shutters, bronze sculpted candlesticks, and colorful Moroccan-inspired table settings: the ultimate in shack chic. The menu (posted on a blackboard) changes daily, but always offers one red meat, one white meat, and one seafood entrée. Generally well-executed dishes lean more toward bistro fare (emphasizing beef entrecote or goat cheese soufflé over such island staples as fish, though specials like oxtail ravioli happily marry both culinary traditions); the signature butterfly shrimp usually precedes entrées. A decent wine list enhances the meal; save room for the Chocolate Sludge. Despite an erratic schedule (reconfirm reservations), hard-to-find location, and overly relaxed service, the ambience is appealingly serene and upscale.
