I'd have given it five stars if it was a might cheaper. This is a great place for some fine food, wine, and terrific service. They specialize in italian dishes but also do a great job with seafood in other styles. They now have seating right out on a pier, which was a little too windy for us the night... More

We stopped for a late lunch while touring the island by rental car. The lighthouse looks from outside like a kitschy tourist trap, which almost put us off, but we were hungry... The food was excellent, service attentive, wonderful view over the reef, and everyone was having a great time. Our best lunch on the island.

We came here on our last night on the island. It was a bit too windy to sit on the deck. The garlic bread is to die for and the conch chowder was the best I ever had! The beignets are also an amazing treat. They sang happy birthday with their beautiful voices to my mom and gave her a... More

We went here twice during our holiday and enjoyed excellent meals both times. The outdoor deck is pleasant unless it is windy. Service is good and the menu very varied

We enjoyed the pasta lunch special and the bread was really tasty. We shared the pasta and they were nice enough to split the plate in the kitchen for us. We ate on the back pier. What a great view for lunch!

I don't know why anyone would subject themselves to this high priced mediocre restaurant. The view is so so and their Sunday brunch was way over priced for the offerings. We spent $100 US for a very disappointing pair of meals. Had we known there was an alternative to the buffet we certainly would have chosen that. But at least... More

We reserved outdoor seating on the pier. However, due to high winds, we were given a window seat inside adjacent to the water. The Sunday brunch was outstanding. The choices were varied, from Mediterranean caprese salad to Caribbean jerk pork to fresh pasta prepared to order. The selection of dessert choices was outstanding. The wait staff were attentive and very... More

We stopped into the LIghthouse without a reservation during dinner time and were seated immediately. The wait staff were all professional, courteous and very attentive. The owners both took time to stop by our table and chat with us. They obviously pay very close attention to every detail. it was after sunset so we couldnt see the view outside, but... More

Loved all the waiters here. Great extra's given for free. Bruschetta was the best I've ever had, great breads and dipping oil. Pizza was really good. The $15 meal was ok... nothing special but had 3 courses. Mohito's are Great! Different special flavors every night are all fantastic. Went back 3 times during our week stay.
