My fiancee picked this spot to celebrate my recent birthday on the recommendation of the hotel concierge... just the two of us. We pulled up to an empty parking lot... I wasn't sure it was open but many cars lined the street further down. Neither of us had been to this part of the island before and it was dark so we really couldn't tell what else was in the area. We were greeted by the hostess at her podium which is almost out in the parking lot. She leads us through the lounge area into the restaurant and all I see is "South Beach"... nice but way over the top for the islands. We are seated at a table right on the waterfront/dock which was very romantic. The service was very good... perhaps a little over attentive at times but tolerable. A little unnerving was that we were literally the only two people in the place which is huge. The drinks arrived after a bit of a wait... odd since we were the only ones there! Don't waste your money on their specially cotton candy martini as it's not that great. The appetizers arrived and were good... 3 small pieces. Definitely room for the main course! She had the Mahi Mahi and I had the blackened seared Ahi tuna... Both plentiful and good but not great and somewhat bland. Dessert was good but not memorable either. I do vividly remember the check though and now understand why the place is empty and the Calypso Grill next door is jumping. Two and a half Benjamin's for dinner for two which was by no means over the top with 4 drinks and no wine? Come on! I've paid more... but I've also had much better. This could be a great laid back restaurant with a great location and view... but loose the attitude and '80's South Beach lounge decor... and realign the menu... oh and add some flavor! There are too many great restaurants on island that do it better.

We dined here with a large party and our menu was chosen for us so we didn't get to explore the menu. Our dinner was delicious and the service was exceptional. The decor is beautiful, the lighting very romantic, the ambience and the breezes off the bay were wonderful. A very fine dining experience.

This is a new restaurant on the island. Take a cab, its 5 minutes from Seven Mile Beach in West Bay. The decor is running. Location is perfect, right on the water. We were there on a full moon night and it was not busy, it was one of the most romantic restaurants we have ever been to. They have a beautiful lounge and bar area so go early for a pre dinner drink. Yes, it is expensive but for a special night out it is worth the price. Sometimes in a place like this the food is not great but I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised. Very , very good. All in all a wonderful experience.

We just had our wedding reception here. I would have to say, it was beyond all expectations. Everything was absolutely beautiful, food was AMAZING, staff was great. We had a huge destination wedding party, over 90 guests and each one of them was blown away. James was incredible to work with. Very easy and accommodating. It's always scary planning a wedding reception when you've never visited the place. Thank goodness for James because he assured us everything would go smoothly. He delivered. Thank you for the best night of our lives!!

the food is to die for, the ambience unbeatable, the white on white decor modern and romantic, the attentiveness of the staff superb without being intrusive. Best service I have ever experienced. Lots of little treats, including the gift of a pashmina wrap if the sea breeze is too chilly. We visited this restaurant three times in nine days. Nothing else on the island compares. Pricey, but you get what you pay for--and more.
