The place to eat at the Caneel Bay resort

The service and food are great, and no reservations required. So if you're staying at Caneel Bay this is the place to eat. Can't get into ZoZo's without a reservation a week in advance and Turtle Bay is more expensive, but the food here is just as good.

We ate at the Caneel Bay grill a number of times during our stay at Caneel Bay. This restaurant serves lunch, dinner, plus the food service to the beach and room service as well. We tried many items and all were great. The sushi is very good. The problem though is if you go to eat between 6:30pm and 8... More

We had both lunch and dinner here a few times during our recent vacation at Caneel Bay Resort. The sandwiches and salad available for lunch were uniformly both very good and quite generous. The dinner selections were more variable. I had some wonderful ribs one night, but my wife had fish twice there and both times she didn't think it... More

We were swimming, snorkeling and kayaking @ Honeymoon Beach & had lunch delivered to us from Caneel Beach Bar and Grill. Lunch was no tasty and healthy! I would highly recommend!

Had a Painkiller and Ceviche while watching the sunset. Bartender did everything he could to ignore us while we waited to order a drink. It took a good 20 minutes before he acknowledged us. The Ceviche was great but unfortunately the service detracted from the experience.

We loved being able to come to some place a little bit more up scale than a lot of the beach bars we had been too. Had a nice menu with great sushi!!! Sat outside on the terrance on the couches and relaxed as we enjoyed the great view and food. Definitely could of spent more time here!

we waited 1 1/2 hours for our sandwiches to arrive. They did bring fruit for the small children who would have had meltdowns. No one in the whole restaurant had food. They did give us a round of drinks after asked for them. Not that we needed them on empty stomachs. Food was OK and certainly not inexpensive.

5 years in a row! Sushi is still fabulous! Pretty much everything you order is great! Only difference noticed this year service seems to be going down hill. Lincoln is wonderful -try to sit in his area! Other servers nice but very very slow and don't seem well trained. Will be back
