Good food - terrible service

Wonderful location and food, but the service was ridiculously slow and/or nonexistent. And when we asked for anything additional, or just asked for the bill, they were rude and completely unapologetic. We understand that "island time" means a different idea of service than we are accustomed to, but... read more

the food was very good, but did not come close to the meals we ate The Sugar Mill. Good atmosphere, friendly service and even tho we didn't have a reservation we were able to be seated right away.

Very laid back, lovely location. Friendly staff....great banana smoothies! You can be seated inside or outside, or on the balcony overlooking the surf. It's very traditional - I would have preferred more local flavor.

Very nice location right on the beach, with views to Jost Van Dyke, Windy Hill, etc. We thought the service was a bit unorganized but it was busy and the food was good. Give it a try if you see something that piques your interest on the menu, otherwise, there are probably other nearby restaurants to check out.

I cannot think of a better place to have a meal on Tortola. Sebastian"s is located on pristine Apple Bay with a view I cannot get out of my mind. Laid back and relaxed, the service was good, by island standards. We enjoyed our meal, especially the Calamari appetizer! The cheeseburger and Mahi-Mahi sandwich were both tasty. We are looking...

the view overlooking the sea to Jost Van Dyke is unbelievable! The food is prepared with flair and served by a loyal friendly staff. The Mahi mahi sandwich was one of the best meals I had while on Tortola with a caper sauce and grilled onions. We enjoy our experience so much that we returned for two more meals and... More

The atmosphere here is very relaxed and casual but so is the restaurant and food. The best part about this place is the hotel.

A nice seaside restaurant with a locals feel. Not overpriced. Specializing in lobster and, what else, local seafood. A nice break from the real fancy restaurants without giving much up. A value. They make their own rum which is secretly spiced, and delicious.

The waitress I had both days was very unfriendly. Took a really long time to come over and take my order, and gave me dirty looks every time I talked to her. Lunch the first day was over an hour to get a caesar salad. Second day was over an hour, but there were 6 of us, and it was... More

My husband and I had a date night here while on vacation. We had a table right overlooking the beach at sunset - it was beautiful. While the restaurant is very casual and nothing fancy, the location is ideal. The service was a bit slow and our server wasn't the friendliest to stay the least, but the lobster was delicious...
