“Thursday Night is the Night to Go”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Party of 4 dined at this restaurant on a Thursday night which happened to be their buffet night with local band performing. It sits overlooking the marina and had a good sized crowd. Be warned that the buffet does not start until 730PM local time so don't arrive too early. At the same time, don't come to late as the line to the food gets quite lengthy and is not very efficient. The buffet itself has a mix of local dishes which was nice to experience. The meat choices were either a steak or fish (flying fish). I'd recommend the fish as the steak was quite average with what appeared to look and taste like Heinz 57 sauce glazed over it. Be aware that you only get one "meat dish" despite it being a buffet. Dessert is also available on the buffet. I'd recommend the key lime pie...it was still warm coming right out of the oven. Overall, the setting overlooking the marina and the presence of the band added to the experience. The food I would say is overall average. It is a little pricey but not much different than most of the other restaurants on this small island.

“NICE WATERSIDE VENUE BUT A BIT TIRED”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

we didn't eat here because the place looked tired and in desperate need of a refurb. The loos were pretty grim. Good service though and close to town

“Good seafront restaurant!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Excellent view, we were there for the steelband night, thursday.
Good service, decent food, decent prices.
Very nice location and much better than the other seafront restaurants along the boardwalk.
Give Figtree a wide berth, try Gingerbread, stop at Frangipani!
