“Excellent Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Our party of 8 had a wonderful meal at The Beach House. The atmosphere was great. Background music was at an appropriate level. The service was attentive and professional. The cavitelli appetizer was stunning. Wine service was professional. The presentation of all appetizers & dinners was impressive. The mahi entree was very good. This place is very close to a "5" overall rating, but not quite there yet. I would give it an overall solid "4.5".

“Beautiful food, very casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Very fitting given the location, really! Turcs and caicos is a beautiful place, with a relaxed atmosphere, and this restaurant was no different. The restaurant interior is almost like an up market beach shack - deck chairs, pale yellow and blue colours - very much like what you would see is someone's beach house (sounds a bit silly, but it's true!). The food though.. WOW. Beautiful. My dad had the surf n turf which he said was really yummy. I had the butternut squash ravioli for main (was listed in the appetiser menu but they were happy to serve me a larger portion for my main meal), which was also really tasty. Highly recommend this restaurant, some of the best food we ate during our time on the island!

“Nice setting, good food, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

We ate at this property several times (stayed on site). Breakfast was always great (I am a lover of freshly squeezed orange juice and good coffee) and the french toast was amazing.

Lunch was tasty - and informal.

For dinner - we thought the food was very good. The servers were all very nice and friendly and I liked the personal recommendations which we took (and enjoyed). In particular, the conch extravaganza and the dessert sampler were excellent (and memorable).

If I had one suggestion, it would be to turn the music in the evening down a little - I found the waiter had to repeat himself several times to be heard (and we have youngish ears).

All in all, I would recommend the restaurant to others and will be back.

“Amazing dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I dropped by earlier in the week for lunch and realized that the chef was on to something. We came back for dinner and had the lobster tasting menu with wine pairing and were not disappointed. The wine pairings were great and were mostly Australian. The only weird thing was a Sauvignon blanc served after a Chardonnay-- I don't know if that should work, but it actually did. The lobster gnocchi course was probably the biggest technical success-- the gnocchi were little cloud pillows of silky lobster and I've never had better. Surf and turf course was also a home run, with a pinot noir pairing that was terrific. The difference between lunch and dinner is that at dinner they have any army of staff who are extremely attentive. Lunch was not this way, but the food was still good. The only bad thing is that for some reason there were tons of mosquitos, which I have been lucky enough to avoid until tonight.

“Tasting menu overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Surprise tasting menu option is not as described in the menu. In fact it is not a "surprise" at all. It is just a selected sampling of the regular menu items and should be stated as such on the menu. Also the wine paring we good but the waiter who poured the wine had no idea what the wines were and could only read what was stated on the bottle label.

Thank you for coming to the Beach House for dinner!

The surprise tasting menu is always crafted based on the freshest and best ingredients available for Chef to source. Sometimes these may be items that are also available on the regular menu as we do not want to compromise on the quality.

Do let us know next time you reserve a table with us that you would specifically like something different for your tasting menu and we will prepare accordingly!

Best regards,
Your Beach House Team
