Beautiful view!

It was a cool restaurant across from beach. The staff were all French, our server was extremely rude. The food was so overpriced 25.00 for a burger is ridiculous.a glass of rose wine was 20.00. I understand that the view comes with a price but a 100.00 for lunch and it was just o.k.

Great spot for enjoying sunset. Gets very crowded at bar during that time. Amazing view of the beach. Restaurant is built around a hugh oak tree and gives the atmosphere of a tree house ..restaurant on three different levels with top level completely outside. Weekend is busiest with more of a nightclub vibe. The place to go in The Hamptons... More

I thought this would be a cute after the beach place for a light lunch but the only thing light about it was our wallets after we paid the bill!!!!! If you come here, please know that it is very very expensive; you may not understand everything on the menu; it is a place to be seen and to party;... More

Great spot to visit for the sunset but don't hold your breath for a drink at the bar. It took forever and the place was not crowded. The two bartenders just take their time and get to you when the want. I guess when you have a location like this you can give poor service to the customers

Very expensive. Nice view. A lot of Europeans come here. Nice beach. But the drinks are off the wall expensive. So is the food.

A friend recommended this place for it's quaint Caribbean feel by the Peconic River. The experience began and ended there. I get the overpriced food and drinks due to the location and short season. I didn't appreciate the attitude from the young arrogant French server. Food was average, not worth the premium from an eating prospective.

Enjoy scenic views, signature cocktails and seafood! Their signature Gimme Shelter cocktail is a must. For dinner the cold lobster, ceviche, tuna tartare, crevettes a la plancha and octopus. Later in the evening it becomes a party.

Stopped for a drink at the bar overlooking the water. The view was great but a glass of Sangria should not cost $16.
