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.

My husband, being a seafood lover spoke to Nicholas who reserved a table for us 1 evening and took us to chef Axel to ask him to prepare a portion of prawns which my husband wanted done a specific way. Not only did we receive way more than we expected, we had the chef personally come to our table to... More

Beautiful location but the food wasn't good. There's nothing italian on those pizzas and pastas. Tides Restaurant is better by far

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....

Stayed at the Sugar Beach resort and absolutely loved eating at Citronella's. Tried to book it every night we were there. Great food, service, drinks and beach front location. Highly recommend the lamb shanks and woodfired pizza.

The restaurant is located at the end of the Sugar Beach Resort where the La Pirogue Resort begins. It's an Italian restaurant, and the food we had was to die for. We had pizza as an appetizer and 2 delicious pasta dishes. We were sat at a table right on the sand at the edge of the restaurant overlooking the... More

This restaurant by far is the best restaurant in the resort. The staff are friendly and are ever willing to help. They greeted us personally and were aware of my allergies and made sure they removed any items that had traces of nuts. The food was awesome fresh and delicious! We did not order any dish that left us disappointed.... More
