“Beautiful but disappointing”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

A real shame this most beautiful restaurant in Providenciales doesn't have better food. It does have a fabulous if slow motion bar with excellent drinks and real nuts, chips and olives. Probably best to just have a drink and leave.

They offer the most unappetizing and tasteless fish on the island, a large bowl with brown sauce covers a hunk of overdone grouper or snapper. Nothing on the side.

Ridiculously expensive wine list with +$1000 selections. Why not put drinkable, value wines on a list that people can actually order.

Toxic tasting tuna tartar served in a dry little pastry cup alone on a big plate. This restaurant needs help,

“Impeccible dining experience”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We dined at Parallel 23 on a week night. Cesar was our server, and made excellent suggestions. I had the Organic beet salad. My husband had the Conch Chowder. We both chose steak for the main course. Whatever is in the Peppercorn sauce is the best topping I've ever had on a steak. My husband said the house dressing for steak was the same as A1. I typically enjoy the meat solo. The atmosphere was relaxing, and the staff was attentive.

“Wonderful Dining Experience Under the Stars”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Beautiful outdoor dining. Good service. The menu was nicely varied and our meals were fantastic. We had wonderful martini's at the bar before dinner. The bartendar (I wish I remembered his name) was very entertaining and talented! We'll go back to this restaurant!

“Good but $$$”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The setting was amazing and the service was exceptional...
There was so much to choose from, and it all sounded great. We went with the fresh catch and pork tenderloin...WOW!!!
The deserts were okay and the wine was refreshing.
I know everything costs more there, but it was a bit of a shock...so keep that in mind, but know that the food was terrific!!
