Lovely location. Interesting cocktails and attentive service. Had two dinners while on Tortola both were excellent with interesting ingredient and nice presentation. Nice wine selection.

“Holiday Meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Staying at the hotel, my wife & i had breakfast daily and several dinners in the restaurant. Firstly the ambiance is delightful with thick stone walls of the old mill, open to the Caribbean breezes and tastefully decorated with prints of water colors by the owner. The breakfast menu is varied with local dishes as well as traditional breakfast items and it is OK to have either a light meal or a more substantial dish. We found food quality to be good and the service friendly & professional although not rushed which is as it should be when one is on vacation. Seating for breakfast is in a smaller room with views over the beach and to Jost Van Dyke beyond. OK there is some traffic on the road in front of the hotel but traffic is light and the diving pelicans offer diversionary entertainment!
The dinner menu changed nightly and included several choices for each course. Seating is reserved in 30 minute intervals to avoid overloading the kitchen so we never had any issues over extensive waits. We found the quality of the food very high and very attentive service - this was equally true on Christmas Day when the restaurant was filled to capacity & when the breakfast area was also in use. Other reviewers have commented on the price of meals but we found them comparable with other restaurants on the Island.
Would we go again? in a heartbeat!

Visited again after a 20 year absence. Still beautiful and delicious. Loved the fresh fish and the varied wine list.

“Anniversary Disaster”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

We went to the Sugar Mill for what we thought we be a romantic anniversary dinner. I was pleased when I saw the 2013 trip advisor award on the wall and thought we were about to have a wonderful time. WRONG! Our reservation was at 7:00 we arrived early and waited in the bar where we ordered a Dirty Martini. The bartender didn't know how to make it so we provided instruction. We were taken to our table 20 minutes after our reservation - again no biggie we were on vacation. The tables around us received service upon seating we had to flag down a server and ask if we could served. Finally someone arrived with menus and we asked what the specials were and the fish of the day was. Our server had no clue and went off to make inquiry. It was now 8:30 and all the other tables were on dessert and when he finally returned we placed our order and ordered another drink. Sorry no more olives we were told - pick something else. At 9:00 pm my husband had to search out the manager who assured us that our order would be right out - there was a mix up in my husbands order. Food finally arrived my fish had been left under heat lamp while they re-prepared my husbands food and was in edible. The manager did check back with us when she saw that I wasn't eating. I suggested she try the fish jerky - she declined. We left hungry and extremely disappointed.
