Real beachside dining, with or without shoes! Booked in for Sunday lunch and the jazz band, Monika asked if it was for an occasion and said it had been our anniversary while we were on holiday. Turned up and there were baloons and Happy Anniversay...More

Beautifully prepared seafood with a good wine list. Although we had the selection of starters, which was excellent. Next time we would probably just go straight to the main course as the Lobster was fantastic. A good view of the Ocean as the deck is...More

As long as you are not in a hurry, this is a great place to eat. Several in our party had lobster and pronounced it excellent. Fish was probably the best I ate on the island. Plastic beach chairs sinking into the sand not the...More

Apologies for the late response. The managers have been busy with jackhammers and sawdust for 4 months and have neglected their online duties. Things are finishing up now and we hope to announce our opening date shortly... More

The restaurant initially began as a wholesale distributor for the island's hotels and restaurants. Cooked takeaway service was added; along with a friendly free beer while you wait. Shortly after that the health inspector demanded we go the whole way or "wholesale only". This was around 1998. Long time friend and fellow musician with the local VSOP Jazz band "Stu Jenkins" became the resident artist (designer) and we named the up coming restaurant "LOBSTER ALIVE and all that Jazz". We felt our way; with many of the usual restaurant mistakes. But it seems now, we have scored quite well with international critics, restaurant guide books; and our many repeat customers.
