We were here for dinner and loved it so much we came the next day, which was our last, for lunch as well. We loved the location and the food. I had the lamb and eggplant dish and it was exquisite. The other members of our group had fish, steak and seafood and everything was delicious. We also had the... More

We visited for a dinner as a group of six and we decided on this restaurant due to its location. When we first came in to make the reservation in person, we were immediately rudely dismissed by the hostess (Nadege) and felt like we were being forced to leave the premises. On the night of the dinner, we had just... More

Close to the most expensive meal we had, but you get what you pay for. Excellent presentation and great tasting food. The complimentary canape was a wonderful start to the dinner. Manage to score a table on the outer edge of the restaurant and could look to and see reef sharks swimming by! Definitely recommended.

Went to this restaurant primarily on the back of the overwhelmingly positive review about the food and the fine dining experience on offer while going prepared with the expectation that it was going to be pricey. What a disappointment, the food was truly awful. My entrée consisted of six deep fried prawns and a dipping sauce that had the taste... More

Exquisite food presentation, attention to detail and customer dining experience. Better than average menu. Food is far more sophisticated and complex than menu description. Great place for a long lunch on the water overlooking islands and peninsula. Worth the extra price for a memorable experience.

Amazingly creative and delicious food at this reataurant. The fact that the restaurant is suspended over water in the bay makes the ambience unique. The staff were discreet and attentive to our needs.

The Roof is located in a wooden shed built on a pier in the middle of the sizzling Anse Vata Bay. You can enjoy there fine food and good french wine, i a romantic atmosphere, while watching plenty of sea fishes swimming under, in hope of a piece of bread. Nice experience.
