We had a very enjoyable meal at Citronella's. Food was very well presented and waiters were polite and attentive. A nice change from the buffet meals at La Pirogue as although they are very good, this felt like being in a 'proper' restaurant. We will hopefully go again before the end of our holiday.

Good quality food in a quite nice location and building. Costs are high as within a resort, service a bit slow and un-engaged

A prawn palm tree and the salads were a meal on their own..great variety. Everything we had asked for was enhanced to perfection.The setting was a beach setting with bonfires and the works. Great dance area and awesome sega performances arranged. An eclectic mix of deserts which I never even got to coz it all got wiped out! Highly recommended.

This lovely restaurant on the Sugar Beach Resort in my opinion was the best one there. It is an Italian restaurant, good was delicious. It is located right on the beach and is part of the all inclusive package, however remember to book a few days in advance.

We stayed in La Pirogue on an All Inclusive basis. This Resteraunt was available for use to use. We used it at lunchtimes and also for Pizza take away. Some items were extra still but quite resonable compared to other All Inclusive food we have had elswhere. Super relaxed place with fine views and a gergous wood fired oven. we... More

A good choices of meals both at lunch and the evening. As an Italian restaurant it had a good range of pasta and pizzas, in addition to salad and fish dishes. A lovely calm relaxed atmosphere with a view out to sea

Staying at Sugar beach, we went back to this restaurant four out of our seven day stay. This service is prompt, the food is really good. All their salads are excellent. The pizzas were winners. Also the setting under the gazebo overlooking the sea adds to a wonderful eating experience.
