Good restaurant

We ate here numerous times, and all but 1 of our meals were delicious. Service is friendly and it's a nice restaurant. I felt like it was a little pricey for what you get, especially if you are staying at the resort, and have limited choices to select from.

Among the best sushi any of us have ever eaten. If you love sushi, don't miss it. Our family has lunched here for the last few years prior to snorkeling at Caneel Bay Beach. The food is great. The service is friendly and to a very high standard. It is expensive and it is worth it.

We were on a charter and stopped for lunch having had fond memories of Caneel Bay from several years ago. The Bar & Grill pretty much killed those fond memories. There are positives: the view; the location; and the sushi. Everything else was shockingly mediocre/poor. Primarily, the quality of the food: small, canned shrimp in a $35 salad is offensive....

Meals, especially the sushi, were well prepared and the staff attentive and helpful. It was also convenient to have a casual restaurant on the grounds of the resort with a menu that had something for everyone.

Great place for lunch. A bit pricey but worth it. Atmosphere is great but be prepared for a lot of families with small children. Sandwiches are all good, as is the sushi. Waitstaff is on island time so go when you have time to spare!

The sushi is amazing, but very expensive. One roll is about $25. The drinks are great. I am surprised at how they arranged the restaurant. I felt like we should have been right on the beach, but we were seated at the back of the restaurant. The bar is well situated, but the restaurant is behind the bar with little... More

This is one of our favorite spots to eat on the island! The staff was falling over themselves to be friendly! They made sure we had everything we needed and even took the time to show my kids a bright green baby iguana, which is apparently a rare sight. The food was incredibly good and the view of the sunset... More

We all enjoyed our drinks and dinner at the outside seating - cannot beat the restaurant location. Drinks were excellent, food was good - everything is expensive, but that's St. John!
