We celebrated a milestone birthday here and were not disappointed. We arrived early for our reservation and enjoyed martinis at the bar while listening to live jazz music and watching the sun set into the ocean. Wonderful. We were seated right on time and ordered an appetizer, bottle of wine, and filets and everything was delicious. Our waiter was efficient... More

Well, the only positive thing I have to say is that the view is beautiful. If you're going here to sip on a cocktail and watch the sunset, this is an excellent place for that. However, I wouldn't plan on eating here. I was here for dinner and the food was mediocre at best - like the caliber of food... More

As a family we wanted to try something a bit different to the traditional American diner food that we had been living on for the last few days and get some fresh veg into the kids! We were actually staying in the seaventure hotel so for us it was easy to get to... one floor up! As soon as we... More

We spent an evening with family having drinks, appetizers and dinner at the Sea Venture restaurant. The ambiance was excellent but I have to say the food and service was beyond excellent. I highly recommend this establishment for any occasion you want to make memorable.
