“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Best of the best! Food is terrific, service is even better: never snooty, always welcoming. The setting right on the beach is delightful as well. We have been coming here for over 10 years and it NEVER disappoints us. Although the prices are high, it's worth every penny! Great job, Annette, in making us feel like family.

“Best restaurant I've been to ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Beach Bistro never disappoints. Within feet of the ocean. Incredible view and ambience - sublime. Service is impeccable. No pretentious airs, just perfect attention to the guests. Only the absolutely finest ingredients - steak, lamb, fish, etc is the highest quality and freshest you will find. Other places may be more glitzy, but none you will want to go back to as the Bistro.

“Romantic, welcoming restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Excellent, polite, service without being stuffy. The wine list is wonderful, as is the food. The ambiance is romantic and if you visit at sunset, magical viewing over the Gulf of Mexico. Highly recommended!

“The best on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The food is excellent but pricey. I know this restaurant for about 20 years and always get the bouillabaisse (now up to $59...)
The only drawback is the small dining room. The tables are very close together. We had a table for 4 by the window area and basically had dinner with the couple sittting next to us.
