“Beautiful, romantic place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

This goes back to 2010 , so I do not know how it is today. Used to be a lovely setting, the food was either excellent or not... hit and miss but worth the ambiance. The sunsets, spectacular!!

“lovely venue for the wedding reception”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

We had our son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception at the Great House Resaurant. It is a lovely old plantation house and was perfect for the reception. We requested local cuisine and its was very good. The flowers and the decorations were stunning. We found the staff helpful and courteous. We finished the evening with a dance on the balcony which was magical. The view is beautiful and we were so happy to have had the Great House for our venue.

“Do NOT eat here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

We had the most awful experience: slow and bad service, then told us after we had eaten first course that the main dish was unavailable, ordered cocktails and they were given to table next to us. Then charged a huge amount for meal, only to find 6 weeks later that they had claimed for it in US dollars and not local currency EC dollars...that amounts to a huge hike! Incompetence or dishonesty, not sure which but huge hassle for us to pursue.
So do not eat here.... go to one of the great restaurants in Rodney Bay, very close by.

“terrible and dishonest”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2011

They charged me the EC$ amount as US$. I have informed Amex who will refund the difference.
Also they took ages to take the order and then after we had finished the starters they then told us they did not have the the main courses we had ordered. It wasn't as though the place was full. We were the only table at 7.30. ( I know, we should never have entered the place!) on a Saturday night. Some other people arrived after us and they then took their order first and the drinks we had ordered were delivered to their table not ours. We should have walked out then. Complete amateurs. Talk about Fawlty Towers!
