“Astrolabe -Why That Name?”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Astrolabe is the main restaurant of the Esmerelda Reort. It has seating both inside and outside. You MUST have a reservation as they are always busy. The service is good and the presentations are lovely. The prices are high but they are at all the nice restaurants. Some nights they have entertainment. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. We ate here twice during our nine day stay.

“Elegance in Orient Bay”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

We dined by the pool. The sommelier was excellent and introduced us to a new white. The service, overall, was very attentive but not intrusive. Our seafood meals were fresh and tasty with the sole beautifully deboned table side.

“Needs some updating, but food was very good!”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

I'd read a review in Fodors about this place and wanted to check it out. The website pics are a little deceiving only because i thought it would be bigger or some reason. The crowd trended older and seemed about a 70/30 split American/Euro. We sat right next to the pool, which was lovely. I wasn't starving, so i had a salad and the lobster ravioli appetizer, both of which were really great. My husband got the lobster pasta main course and we had a bottle of wine. His pasta was also great. Be prepared: this meal was not cheap. I think our final bill was somewhere around $172 before tip.

“Lobster Night...don't go!”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Nice setting...overpriced mediocre meal and service. They undercooked the Lobster and it comes with near nothing. Service was also subpar as we would have 3 different people come to our table to just interupt our conversation and ask the same questions as well as then go for a long time without stopping by so we would have to go get them.

All in all a lousy experience.
