Not much atmosphere and food not much better than Oceans although nice. Wine expensive, as expected, and portions too large!

4 of us family members dined here and everyone enjoyed their food. I had the risotto, it was cooked perfectly! 2 of them had the Ravioli, it was really good but not a large portion and the other had fettuccine and it was very tasty:) We would definitely go back, the service was 5* all the way!

This is definitely a nice restaurant, but in my opinion is trying a bit hard to be fancy. My Caesar salad was very nice, my wife's eggplant so so. Her fish of the day on risotto was superb. My fried prawns and squid would be better as an entree. While they were nice, it was a bit 'meh' as a... More

It is many years since we had visited the Wind Jammer, so based on recent reviews & past reputation we embarked on a very pleasant dining experience. The service was excellent, attentive, yet not overbearing. The menu & wine list were extensive & reasonably priced for a restaurant of this calibre. To start we shared a plate of bruschetta served...

If you want beautiful Italian food, you must visit this place. Food was wonderful. Staff were friendly and the Chef spoke to us all after he had finished in the kitchen. We had a lovely experience.

Our party of 8 (4 couples) were all staying at Crown Beach Resort so we were always going to have a meal here and we were not disappointed! The food, service & decor were all excellent & reasonably priced. We had the added advantage of being able to charge our meal to our room as well. All meals were good... More

Discovered this gem of a restaurant on day 6 of 7, wish it was sooner. We started with the bruschetta and the caprese, delicious and fresh. We then followed on to main where I had the best seafood risotto that I have ever tasted, my husband had the spicy prawn penne pasta, which he gave a 10 out of 10.... More

Good service, nice sized meal. Above average for the island. We were part of a group who booked the whole restaurant, so the level of service and consistence of food was excellent.

5 star luxury at a 2 star price. THE BEST restaurant in Raro hands down. Beautiful handmade pasta by Carlo who comes out to greet his guests and tasty wines on offer including a selection of Italian ones. The chocolate fondant is to die for and I recommend the mushroom risotto with truffle oil- AMAZING!
