Owner Curt Finfrock’s philosophy is that a small, simple menu ensures quality, the three items on his menu are different enough to satisfy any kind of taste or palate and include a vegetarian option.

All of the dishes are large, but the lightest of the three is the fish salad wrap, $6.50, the grilled catch of the day with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, wrapped in a toasted tortilla with a side of Curt’s homemade "spicy sauce."

The vegetarian option is the vegetable pasta, $8, spaghetti noodles topped with sautéed peppers, carrots and squash; add the grilled catch of the day for an extra $4.

The largest of the dishes, recommended for sharing is the specialty plate, $13, the catch of the day, filleted and baked wrapped in a banana plant leaf with a side of sautéed vegetables and mashed potatoes.

Complement your meal a fruit smoothie $4, a blend of fresh banana, papaya and pineapple, add rum for an extra dollar.

Ambiance

Curt is the king of laidback, throw back a rum smoothie and you’ll be in the same mood as you watch birds flutter around the terrace’s bird feeders stocked with bananas, green iguanas might daringly leap across the tree branches to get in on the action.

Service

Helpful and relaxed, Curt has lived in the area since 2010. He knows about almost every attraction and tour and happily shares this information while you wait for your food.
