Smugglers is open again !!!

Its now under the name of Kismet. New owners/managers, same super location (light house), more seating area, valley ball court, great menu, vibe, etc. So, if you want a secluded, quiet beach bar/restaurant area away from the noise and people of West Bay, check it out !

That's great news Shawda. It's going to be hard for a new owner to re-create the ambiance that Sydney and Chris presented, but the location is always going to be hard to beat. Looking forward to patronizing the establishment on our next vist. Good luck to Kismet. It sounds like they're off to a good start.

The way I heard it (island rumors always are hard to confirm...) that the original owners had real issues with permits and stuff for running a restaurant in the original location. I hope that's all been worked out... we never got out there but folks sure seemed to like the place!

We got out there 2 years ago and loved it. Some...ahem...not as athletically inclined in our group were not happy about the hill climb/descent; but we thought the scenery and food were worth it.

The owners and manager couple of smugglers is off island,, not to return ,,, or so the island rumours will have it said to be,,,,, so I was just wondering if this is someone's new venture or possible someone that we might have met from another establishment,, its always sad to find a restaurant shut down when we return but its always a pleasant surprize to find the staff now working at a new place.. the setting at smugglers was perfect Sydney and Chris prepared the meals fantastically!!! but I highly doubt they shared their secret recipe's with anyone still on island!!!!

This past trips to the island we have enjoyed the Iron shore grill on the beach !!!!! great staff , fantastic setting for sunset views ,,,, and decent food ,, have done apps during the day,, and returned again for dinner meals highly recommend!!!!!

They are off to a great start. Same great location with even better food. Better go now while you can still get a seat.
