Such a wonderful find for us. As a vegan I often feel like I get given side dishes (for the same price as full meals on the menu), not so here. The chef created me a meal every bit as special as the fish/meat one....More

Nobody puts in more time, effort and care than Elizabeth and Adam. There is no request too large or detail too small to stand between them and delivering an exceptional fine dining experience. We wish you continued great success on island!

At first I was skeptical since there really isn't a choice on the menu (except for entree of either meat or fish). That being said, everything we had was amazing. Service was quite attentive and the manager Jimmy was very friendly and welcoming. My husband...More

18 Bay is a Chef owned and operated restaurant. We serve a four course Italian inspired Chefs menu that is a direct reflection of the local markets. Dinner begins with four different antipasti, followed by a handmade pasta, a choice of entree and dessert. The menu changes every week. We make handcrafted cocktails using organic syrups, serve local wine including two on tap, as well as international wines from small producers. We offer a vegetarian menu and accommodate for any allergies or aversions. We look forward to sharing with you our interpretation of the best of our terroir.
