    Default Moderate restaurants

    We are taking my 25 year old son and girlfriend with us, so I am treating the entire trip. I would like to be able to go out more rather than take out so am looking for more moderate places to dine. It seems to me that great places like Bistro Paris, Wil's, At Sea, Carpaccio, Appetite, and others will cost close to $250 to $300 including drinks and tip. So my questions are what are some more moderate places ( around $150) for 4 people and inexpensive places where the food is fresh ,a nice atmosphere, and no fear of food poisoning.

    Although Paradise Moon is a little like an American Chili's or Applebee's in terms of menu, we always found it to have tasty food and there's a friendly island charm. It is very reasonably priced and is right on the water in town.

    If you're like me that statement might scare you away. I just wanted to jump in and point out that while some of the style may be similar, the quality is on a whole other level vs the two places named. Way way way better food.

    I'd go for the local places, Maikey's, El Fogon, Rose Inn come to mind. Other people mention different ones, such as Mi Banana, which I haven't been to. We've found excellent food at these places, friendly atmosphere, etc.

    Plazita Lemina is very good, and reasonably priced. Popular with the locals. Also, consider having your "big meal" at lunchtime; many restaurants have a much more reasonably priced menu at lunch than at dinner. We've had some awesome lunches at Bistro de Paris that were very budget-friendly!
