We have had lunch at Shellona at least a dozen times since last year as this is our favorite beach club. The food is always consistently good and never any issues with quality. Our favorites are the ceviche, tuna tataki and fish tacos all of...which contain very fresh fish. We also love the Saganaki wrapped in phyllo and the bread maybe one of the best on the island. The staff is also so sweet and they always save us our favorite table behind the DJ booth. We also love the beach club which is made special because of Nico. He really makes the place and is such an integral part of the experience. We can't wait to come back!More

8 of us had lunch there coming from the beach below. The food was better than I expected - I enjoyed the fish sandwich and the chicken skewer. The service was good and if you're not enjoying yourself at a place like this sipping Rose...staring at the beach, there's something wrong with you!More

This is a staple for our Saint Barts trip, with a really great beach for a swim before or after lunch. The slightly Greek menu is interesting, and the food very good for lunch. The wine list is, unfortunately, quite overpriced. But the beer is...reasonable!More

Fantastic! So much fun. Great energy, cool music. Sexy, stylish crowd, and just a terrific experience. Incredible food and impeccable service to match. Checked off all the boxes for a fun lunch in St Barth. Reminded us of Nammos Beach Club in Mykonos. Fabulous afternoon....Highly recommend. We are going back again this week. It’s that good.More

you cant beat the location! Right on Shell Beach with elevated views. The decor really is warm and pleasent. Service was EXCELLENT, the servers really took good care of us and though me may have taken longer than other guests, never did we feel pushed...or rushed. The food - We took several Meze to start of which the Trio of Militzana, Houmous and Tzatziki were amazing! Busting with flavor. The Tirokafteri was a joke, beyond embarassing, really bad. Octopus and Calamari were to die for. we then had the various meats for the Kalamakos, which are highly recommended. Will definetly be returning.More

The closest you can get to the french riviera atmosphere on the island. Music, sunbeds and cocktails. Oh and wifi! The beach is also one of the best protected from the wind and offers amazing sunset views. Think about booking in advance or just grab...a drink and enjoy at the public area. For adventurers - go snorkeling and you may see small fish, squids or even turtleMore

This is the best beach club on the island. We’ve been to Gypsea and Pearl Beach but Shellona is the classiest and has a beautiful sunset. The food is great, try the lobster (very fresh) and local fish with eggplant. Rented 2 beds for the...day... Rose all day of course, very attentive service by Nico!! Thanks again! Our favorite place so far!More

My husband and I visited for lunch one day. We loved the boho vibe and had great service. The Greek food was a nice change of pace from everything else we’d been eating and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We ordered the octopus, Greek salad, feta...in filo, and chicken skewer all to share, along with a few delicious cocktails and glasses of wine. Worth noting, there’s not many parking options around here except for the valet (15euro). We would definitely come back.More

Made a reservation for 5 people one week before. Drove 2hrs to get there to receive a “no, sorry we couldn’t find your reservation”. Very unprofessional. For sure don’t make the same mistake.
