The food here is very good. Priced a bit on the high-side, but the food is still quite good, as is the service. One thing that retail places are lacking on this island is good service. This place has good service. I had a cheese burger and fries. Well they weren't exactly french fries, they were more like shoe string... More

Visited this restaurant with 3 of my colleagues, we all had the same starter crab which was absolutely delicious, best crab dish I have ever tasted, I had halibut for my main course with a sort of stir fry of peppers etc, must admit I've had better at home in Aberdeen, one of my colleages had a steak, he's had...

This place is pricey, but worth the money. The food was fantastic and different from anything on the island. We shared the tasting menu and it was one great dish after another.

We were a little early for the opening but they gave us drinks and appetizers anyway. The food was very good and the servings were ample. We renewed our vows on the beach earlier in the day and this was a great ending.

Probably the best restaurant of the island. Right beside the Pelican Bay hotel. and facing the bay. High end cusine and thus a little pricy. Live music at night . Excellent Sunday Brunch

We heard from someone else that this was a good restaurant and decided to give it a try. The ambience is nice, eating on the dock. The food is not conventional. The margarita with cilantro was served in a high ball glass which seemed weird. The glass was extremely "sweaty." Our server was present when I picked it up to... More

Went with my partner last night and the experience was exceptional, from the moment the host took us to the table(lucky we as we didn't have a reservation) the food was great, the scallops with cauliflower was to die for, my calamari was tender with so much flavour. For the main courses we had the tuna nicoise, fantastically cooked, the... More

My husband and I had a beautiful dinner here. The food was attractive and delicious, and the service was superb. One annoyance was the waiter repeatedly straightening out my utensils! We never shy away from expensive restaurants when it's time to treat ourselves, but these prices were too high, in my opinion. Especially since the décor was way below boring.

Held our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at the Flying Fish. Owners were exceptionally accommodating, the staff and the service were impeccable, the food was not only beautiful to look at, but exceptional - no words to describe how good the food was - across many different choices our guests ordered - from the variety of fish choices, to pork, beef...
