Sugar beach does not provide pricing info for its restaurants online. In fact it actually deletes that info from the menus it publishes. I can see why-it would make you think twice about booking with them. However,a brief glimpse at the australian white section of the wine list should give you an idea: Oxford landing estates Chardonnay $95 ($113 after tax and obligatory service charge, before tip). It would cost you about £7 a bottle in the supermarket. I know they have to import everything but even so, it is impossible to justify that sort of margin.
We were not particularly hungry so just ordered main courses: total advertised price of about $80; actual price after charges and tax of $96. The food was absolutely fine if unremarkable- good restaurant cooking. The service was excellent. I liked the fact it was not a rushed dinner service, the waitresses were charming and smiling, and the food was good. But we had a main course each with a glass of wine, and it came to about $150 all told. That's just daft.
What really frustrates is the fact that you have to add 20% to all the prices you see due to the restaurant stating them before 10% tax and the 10% service charge. Add 30-40% if you are going to tip, too (the service certainly warranted it). There is no need for this- restaurants at other resorts just publish the price grossed up for tax and service (although we always tipped on top). We had better food for half the price on our trip once we left the resort.
