“There is much better on this island”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Pretty atmosphere, but they made us wait for a table for a half hour when the restaurant was half dead. I ordered the ceviche sampler and three out of the four ceviches were terrible. My wife ordered the grilled octopus appetizer again the quality of the product was very sub par. Our entrees were both fine, I had the ceviche and she had the mahi mahi, no complaints. Their cocktail menu is great, but it takes way to long to get a drink. Bottom line is there are much better restaurants on the island. I won't be back, and I visit the island twice a year.

“Good But Not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Good and not so good made for an OK experience---at the prices charged it should be all good---attitudes ranged from charmingly friendly to downright stuffy----it's obvious that some staff buzz around the "important people" and are quite cold to the normal folks! Portions are small but tasty, wine choices good but as expected pricey,and the view worth the visit. I think there is better food, treatment and value at several other restaurants on St.Barts like Santa Fe,or Meat & Potatoes or even Andy's for a simple but tasty meal.

Wonderful food and ambience, always top of our list when on the Island..

“Expensive and Worth It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Superb food and a wonderful setting. Be sure to make a reservation to ensure a table overlooking the harbor. The wine service is excellent and the recommendations were spot on in pairing with our meal. The food is fabulous, we had the cold pea and mint soup - fresh bonito and a poork dis that was out of this world.
