Average food, super-expensive. Not worth it in my opinion. The host was extremely rude as well. He said one HAS to make a booking in order to eat there!?! The restaurant wasn't even at half its capacity so I found that strange. I'd say give this one a skip. Also we had terrible cappuccinos. I don't like to complain but... More

Having read numerous excellent reviews of this restaurant we were really disappointed.The food was for us was no better than average. It was hot and edible but bland and very over-priced. Venue was okay but nothing special.

We ate here some lunchtimes as we liked the food in the Mon Plaisir buffet for dinner. There is a good lunchtime menu and it is a quieter place to eat than Tides, which is right beside the hotel's main pool

This is another of the restaurants in the Sugar Beach/La Pirouge complex. It has a lovely outdoor setting and serves food with an Italian theme. Well worth a try if you are staying in either hotel.

My wife and I visited this restaurant a couple of times during our recent stay. The food was generally very good apart from the steak which was slightly overcooked. The bread and the complimentary dips were also very good. We preferred this restaurant to the other restaurant in the resort, Tides.
