“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We were taken to Sugar Reef by our hiking guide Donnaka (www.hiking-bequia.com) and after 3 hours in the heat it so wonderful to be greeted by the staff in such a wonderful open air dining room with a table virtually on the beach! We returned 3 times to Sugar Reef on our holiday in Bequia and it never disappointed- fabulous local and freshly cooked foods (best Roti we have had in the Carribean) fresh juices and the pineapple and passion fruit crumble with homemade nutmeg ice cream was to die for! Nothing was too much trouble and we would have loved to stay in the beautiful bedrooms shown to us by the owner Emmet - next time we are back in Bequia definitely.
The beach is in our opinion the best on Bequia, the water warm and clear and we just didnt want to leave.

“Prime location, unique ambience, quality service and great taste!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We had lunch - delicious chicken roti - and spent the afternoon here as day guests on the beach. And what a beach! The food quality was excellent and the price reasonable. The staff were gracious, helpful, courteous, and friendly. The restaurant and resort lobby were tastefully decorated and unique. Rum punch BEST on Bequia! 5 minutes from the turtle sanctuary so combine the two for a really great day trip.

“Fabulous spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We have been twice for dinner with our family. We really enjoyed meeting the family who own the Sugar Reef, the bartender and the cook, all lovely and welcoming. The food is fabulous and the restaurant is stunning. One note, the menu and bar options are somewhat limited and the restaurant is pretty quite, however in relation to what else is out there, it is the best option for a lovely dinner out in the area. I am sure once more people figure out what a fabulous place this is the restaurant will take off.

“A bit of a trip, but certainly worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had the roti (eggplant) and our friends had the hamburgers. Three of us had the toasted coconut ice-creams. It is a simple menu, and they present it very well, indeed. We were all very pleased by every aspect of the meal. The service was charming and thoroughly competent; the food was nicely presented and tasty, and the view of beach and bay was simply stunning. The owners were hosting, and one never lost the sense that you were at a lovely, family place. We liked it so much that we have signed on to stay at the Sugar Reef next March!

“Stunning setting and delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were staying in a villa above Sugar Reef and spent three lovely afternoons at this charming beachfront restaurant. Not only does Sugar Reef offer some of the best food on the island the decor and the service is lovely and the gracious hosts allowed us to use their beach chairs and kayak free of charge. The prices are reasonable for the value they provide.

This beach is my favorite on the island as there are normally only a handful of people and you really get that desert island feeling (with the luxury of a good restaurant right behind you!)
