Fishy's Tropical Garden

It gets my goat that it is so costly to get my goat! When you first enter Fishy’s, it’s a bit of a mess! And the prices as posted, should really be less But for a taste of the Islands, it just can’t be beaten That delightful goat roti was all-too-soon eaten. I’ll be back again …

Roy Wallace at Tartan Pub
