Great selection of food and they accommodated a larger party at short notice. Choice is super and both adults and teens had an amazing evening. Highly recommend - we were on an All Inclusive holiday at Sugar Beach and there was a wide choice included in the menu

I ate dinner at this restaurant on 24 August 2015. I ordered pizza , it was blend, tasteless. My friends had the lamb shank which was a disappointment. The Lamb shank didn't meet expectations. The staff were friendly unfortunately their smiles couldn't make up for the below average food. I will not go back to this restaurant .

I was very fortunate to be staying at Sugar Beach resort and I visited this restaurant both alone and with friends. Both experiences were different but the food on all occasions is fantastic. The staff are also outstanding and always ensure your comfort. I had booked (you need to book at least 2 days in advance) as a solo and... More

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.
