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.

Visited twice during our stay at La Pirogue as this restaurant was included in our package. We had two entirely different experiences though. On the first occasion the service was really good as well as the food quality and a view of a lovely fire on the beach. On the second occasion however, the free breads were just put on... More

We visited Sugar Beach Resort in March 2010 for our wedding. We flew out with close family and enjoyed a lovely, personal and intimate wedding. As the early evening arrived, we were met by a beautifully decorated table on the beach with our own beach fire and candles at the front of Citronella, but far enough away from the restaurant....
