Each to their own and load that you have had good meals at Boni. It always seems quite busy in the main season. Josephs is now under new ownership of Tracy and called La Roca.

Owners Cars have an office there which is open in the main season. Have always been pretty reasonable. There are some others but I don’t know the names.
