Molten Lava Cake!

One of the most expensive places on the island for entrees.....but the molten chocolate lava cake dessert is worth every penny! Amazingly Delicious! I've had many molten cakes around the U.S. and the Caribbean and this was the best I'd ever had. You won't want to share!

This is a very high end hotel. We ate lunch at the bar restaurant. The food was really good but the service was terrible. Waiters did not check on you. We kept having to go back in the bar to get them to fill water, order another drink, etc.

Four of us dined here and all had different meals. No one said their food was that good. I had the shrimp risotto, shrimp was tasty, but risotto was boring. My husband had the ciopino and the broth tasted exactly like canned tomato sauce. Could have been an off night, but ...

Dear gottagoseeya01, I'm sorry to hear your party didn't find your meals exceptional. It's very kind of you to suggest an easy out like an off night, but that's not an acceptable excuse for a restaurant of our caliber. If you'd care to drop me a line with the date you dined with us and any other pertinent information at... More

Take a trip south and go here. This is a great place for a special celebration. Lots of yummy options on the menu. Be sure to try the molten chocolate cake.

Anytime a restaurant will come pick you up and take you back to your accommodations, it will get my attention. We were staying about 2 miles away from the restaurant and the golf cart got there to pick us up quickly. As soon as we were ready to go back, we were on our way back

As per my review of Victoria House - loved the extensive menu, the mouth-watering specials and the fact that we could enjoy the same menu in the restaurant dining room, the pool deck or the beach bar. The snapper (both in a sesame crust and with curry sauce) was to die for!

This restaurant is elegant, but any very relaxing also. We ate fish every night because the variety was so creative and delicious. The staff working in the restaurant were friendly and very efficient.

No need to leave Victoria House for meals unless you're looking for something more authentic. The food is great with enough variety to try something different every meal for several days.
