“Too Pricey For The View”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We feel this restaurant is totally over rated. It is on the beach and the view is great. The food is average or slightly above combined with the view still do not justify the prices. We asked for tap water and received a bottle of water and it cost over $12. French Fries were almost $14. A lunch for two containing one salad, one personal pizza, one local beer and one bar glass of wine was $110. There are better views with less expenses.

“Incredible views and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Went here for pre dinner cocktails and appetizers and to watch the sunset. We were not disappointed. The mojitos were strong, and the pea guacamole was incredible. Expensive, but worth a visit, if anything just go for a drink.

“Caribbean elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We had sushi, lobster tacos, gambas, mahi mahi and ravioli. Each had exquisite flavours. The service was superb and they adjusted their dishes to suit my dislikes too. Hard to beat the location on the rock next to the sea too

“Lunch is great, Dinner not recommended”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We had lunch here on our very first day, it was lovely, everything was delicious, the staff was very attentive and it was right on the beach, so we decided to try the night restaurant on another night thinking it would be just as wonderful. The food was average, not bad but not up to Eden Rock standards, I had a fish which was very blah and my husband's steak was so so. The worst part was the staff, they just wanted you out of there as soon as possible, it was just 10pm and they started closing down the restaurant while we still had half a bottle of wine left, literally picking up chairs in front of us and of course they didn't even ask if we wanted anything else, they just put the check on the table like any ol' chain restaurant in the US, ABSURD.
