The Terrace has a little bit of a view of Caneel bay. But, the food makes up for that! I loved the lamb and totally would recommend this to anyone you loves meat! This restaurant has tons of it! I recommend this to anyone!

Again, limited menu. Therefore I had 2 small plates. Only restaurant I found with scallops and mussels. Both were outstanding in flavor and presentation. Best meal of the week.

What kind of happy hour gives only $2 off for 6 oysters? It's still well over $2 per oyster. That's crazy talk!

Sorry, I don't eat oysters, but I'm guessing that's not a good deal!! We found better dining at that price point elsewhere on island. Service was excellent though.
What dates will you be closed this fall. We came around Sept 1 last year and you were closed. When do you reopen this year in Sept. When do you close?
