Has beautiful fresh fish to cook at home!

As well as being a great place for a special occasion meal, this establishment stocks a variety of fresh fish for home preparation. Tuna, Wahoo, and Barracuda are typical species, sold by the kilo, at market prices, I would highly recommend taking some home!!

This is a lovely restaurant to enjoy a glass of wine by candlelight and enjoy a delicious meal. This is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion or for a romantic evening.

I had dinner yesterday in this restaurant. I only have nice comments to say... good service, friendly staff, good food, cozy details during the dinner such a free appetizers while waiting our dishes. Relation food price is in line with the rest of the island... you can understand whatever you want 😐. If I have to say something to improve... More

Nice ambiance and view. Service was good and timely. Food was fresh and prepared well. The catch of the day was Wahoo. We had both creole style and with lemon butter style with baked potatoes. Gamba al Ajillo was the starter and it was delicious, Cucumber salad was refreshing and sweet.

Maybe our expectations were too high, but we found the food and service here just average, and the desserts utterly disappointing (should have skipped them and gone for gelato at Gio's!) Loved the concept behind reusing the old house, and the newspaper menu, but the execution didn't match our expectations.

They are capitalizing on their location. The food is not inventive at all, and the fish was not good. Server told me the Curacao Martini ingredients were vodka, curacao and martini. I told her martini wasn't an ingredient and she actually argued with me! At Sea was WAY better.
