This poolside bistro at the Shelborne, which replaced a pricey establishment that never seemed appealing, offers a terrific array of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options at the best prices you will find in any Sobe hotel. My ahi tuna 'burger' was wonderful and my wife's grilled chicken, while unexciting, was delicious. Service was first class and the whole experience was... More

Located inside the newly remodeled historical art deco Shelborne Beach Resort, Vesper is a unique dinning experience. You can dine al-fresco in the pool side area, or inside the very unique dinning experience. Tapas style dinning at affordable prices and chic décor. The “18 and Collins cocktail is a must try and the lichi martini is very refreshing. Just a... More

The food was very good and a great value. I thought the portions were going to be small given the reasonable prices: however, there was plenty of food. The setting was beautiful. My only complaint is that was asked for "regular" water but apparently the waiter thought that meant the $8 bottled water. Kind of feel like we got scammed.
