“The Terrace - Martel Lounge”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

As guests of The Buccaneer renting a car for only a day, we ate many meals at The Martel Lounge portion of The Terrace Restaurant. The setting was amazing. The Martel Lounge and Terrace restaurants are on a large, well, terrace in the main house of The Buccaneer Hotel. The open arches let the breezes into the dining area and are very soothing and romantic. The service was top-notch for most of our meals. Daniel and Pat were personal favorites. We started every meal with the Calamari ($14) and found it to be our favorite of any restaurant on the island. It comes crispy, hot and lightly tossed in a delicious sweet/sour glaze and shreds of pickled vegetables for $14. As the menu is very limited, we tried most of the options on it, including the Mahi Mahi Burger ($18). It was a neat twist on a burger/fish sandwich combination and came with great hand cut fries and coleslaw. The chicken club ($14) was a big sandwich on delicious bread. The chicken was roasted and very juicy. Again, it had the delicious fries as a side. The Martel Burger ($16) was juicy and delicious and the Steak Frites were/was DELICIOUS. There were no other side dish options other than the fries, but they were consistently very tasty. The drink & wine menu was extensive and we found the mixed/blended drinks to be the best we had on the island. They were pricy, but hey! We were on vacation! There was live music every night. Sometimes that got to be a little loud, but all the groups were very good. One minor complaint that I would have for the Martel Lounge was the seating. There were bar-height tables and bar stools along the perimeter of the lounge. The were convenient for taking advantage of the view, but the style of the table made it impossible to pull up to the table. Therefore, we were forced to lean forward to eat. It just wasn't that comfortable. However, the atmosphere, convenience and quality of the food made us quickly adapt and forget the discomfort. I'd recommend The Martel Lounge. It has a great feel, amazing views and good service.

“Wonderful Views, Wonderful Food”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

The Terrace is the main restaurant at the Buccaneer. It is open air dining at the Great House. It offers terrific views of Christiansted and the ocean. The lights of Christiansted at night are especially neat to see. A little expensive, but you get your money's worth.

“The Chef's cooked it with love!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

The food was to live for. I ate there many nights because my friends took me to their house otherwise. I had to call the chef out so that I could congatulate him. Wonderful food and superbly presented.

“Great Open Air Dining”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Food was very good as was the service. The best part was the covered open air dining room. The night we were there, there was a 15 minute fireworks display in the harbor in Christiansted in celebration of the holiday season and we had a prime table for viewing.

“Too Expensive”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Food is average at best, and prices are quite high. Service is slow - island time. Unfortunately, there are no restaurants nearby, so your only option is going into town or room service. .
