“Good food, and no reservation necessary (despite what they say!)”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

DH and I arrived on a Saturday night without a reservation just before 7pm and were asked if we had reserved. We said that we hadn't but hoped they might be able to find a table for us. There were literally three couples seated and I counted more than 25 empty tables. In theory, I thought it was possible that they had all been reserved, but that seemed doubtful. After waiting a few minutes we were seated in a room toward the back of the restaurant where no one else was sitting (I might note at this point that my husband was wearing a collar shirt and I a black linen blouse and black pants, while others seated at tables in the front were wearing t-shirts and cutoffs). We ordered some wine, baked brie, grilled greens, and duck noodles. They brought an amuse-bouche of freshly made hummous and homemade chips, which were warm and tasty. But the baked brie arrived without crackers or bread to put it on which was strange. We asked for some and they brought us three pieces of bread. Anyway, three glasses of wine plus two appetizers (delicious) and one main course (duck with noodles) ended up at $85. We liked our food a great deal, but having to beg for a table in an empty restaurant (which, even when we left around 9pm, was less than 25% full) was annoying. They shouldn't pretend reservations are necessary when they're obviously not.

“Pretty Good Restaurant”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Chez Bamboo is a very casual restaurant. The food was pretty good and the portions were generous. There was a wide choice available on the menu so anyone could eat here. They were friendly.

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

We always make a point of eating at least once at Chez Bamboo every time we go to Adagio Villa - Rose and the rest of her crew at the restaurant do a fantastic job at preparing excellent meals and serving them with grace, efficiency and perfction.

“Great food. . . a little pricey”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Food is local and delicious at this VG staple. Entrees are a bit pricey, but you come to expect that in the islands

“Divine Dinner at Chez Bamboo, not to miss!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Chez Bamboo, recently renovated for more privacy, even more beautiful decorations, always offers a superb cuisine! The lobster curry is one of my favorites, and my husband had the Asian combo, which was exquisite. Service cannot be better. Well, all in all, this is one of our favorites! Rose is always lovely, warm, welcoming, and the staff follows in that tradition. Not to miss!
