So much more than a restaurant...

Debbie Manos owns the SCD as well as the Coral Reef Bar and Grill. She is so much more than a local business owner. She managed the house we rented, picked us up from the airport, arranged our golf cart and bike rentals and basically served as an uber concierge in the best possible way! We ate... read more

Where else can you order lunch, snorkel, whale watch or dive and have lunch ready when you return. The restaurant is steps from the ocean... your feet are in the sand once you step off the deck. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed the BBQ night- ribs by the ocean- while whales swim by- a great vacation... More

Perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great food and reasonably priced. Perfect place to watch the sunset, too. You can relax after snorkeling with the whales or after a dive and talk about your experience with other travels and the locals, who are super friendly. Libations and conversations abound! You can whale watch right from the deck. A true... More

Debbie, thanks so very much for coming to visit. Thanks for your kind remarks. The whales continue to be amazing and must smell the food as the are jumping right in front of the cafe! Sure hope you come back next year. Loved having you both. More

Karen, you and your family were such a pleasure to meet. Staff loved you and we still use the wonderful candles you gifted us. I can't wait to have you all back. We will have some special new deserts and veggie mels for you to try. Hugs to all and thanks for your kind review. Debbie More

We just spent 13 days on Salt Cay Dec-Jan. We did a lot of diving with Salt Cay Divers and the CRB&G is their base. After a two tank morning-lunch dive you really need some food so we usually ordered lunch in between dives. Not only being very convenient the food and service you get is also very good. Debbie...

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, everything is made from scratch to your precise wishes. Better conch dishes you won't find any where in the Caribbean along with fresh fish caught by local resident Lionel. The atmosphere is laid-back like it should be in Paradise. Debbie and her staff are the best.

This is a local gathering place right on the waterfront. While it is a casual atmosphere, they go out of their way to make sure the diners have a good experience. Everyone mingles and compares notes on their day which makes it quite lively. Rib night is one worth trying!

We spent 10 days at Salt Cay and were so sad to leave all the great people we had met. It fely like we were leaving our home.... More

My wife and I recently returned from a week of diving on Salt Cay. The other restaurant, Porters, was closed for vacation but it didn't matter as we had great food and service from the staff here. In all we had 8 lunches and 6 dinners. Our arrival day coincided with the Wednesday Conch special consisting of conch ceviche, conch... More
