    A very non descript place which opens as the suns goes down most evenings.....we wouldnt even have eaten there if we werent directed by some guy working front street soliciting people with a menu in his hands....
    We were most happy with this place...service was good and quaint....there were 4 or 5 tables outside on the uneven sand and the classic plastic chairs. We didnt meet Marla but her cousin was there that evening serving and cooking...there was one other cook there as well (another cousin?).
    Menu was simple with a good amount of variety. Mainly people choose something to BBQ and add on some sides. They also have some pastas and other goodies, so something for everyone. They serve beer - not sure about mixed drinks - and you can expect your food in about 1/2 hr depending on how busy.
    I had a white snapper which was excellent and Amy had a garlic lobster creation with fresh tortillas.
    Dinner for the two of us with 3 beers between us was $15 USD....very good value, very good food.

    Favorite Dish: One thing I just loved....one of the side dishes was macaroni and cheese (only Canadians will get this)....which was so unusual.....so I had a whole snapper and a side of legitimate Kraft Dinner! Ive never seen that before.

    Marla's kitchen: Maybe the best and cheapest place

    Marla's kitchen

    This might be the best and cheapest place on the island! Follow the main street north from the watertaxi dock, and turn left when you see the sign to Marla's kitchen. A few meters down the road you see a small 'box' with a door and a window, and some tables and chairs in front.

    They don't have menus so make your desicion from the sign outside before you sit down. They have the best and cheapest lobster we found on the whole island, and the rest of the food was great too.
