Go! A drink evolved into lunch then that evolved into a tour of Admirals’s Inn by a wonderful member of staff. Stunning location and couldn’t have asked for more. Will definitely be back!

Wonderful local lobster dinner in a truly beautiful setting, was a very windy evening , but we were still able to eat out side under the overhang and get out of the weather.

The restaurant is great for watching boat tenders zip about, drinking one of Reggie's awesome Rum punches and the lobster is to die for!

We ate in the Pillars Restaurant a number of times as a couple and in party groups with family and friends. Quite expensive but good value, recommend strongly for special occasions. Try the Surf and Turf!
