We usually have dinner here once during our stay at Sapphire and the food is very good. They have a fairly limited menu with appetizers/pasta/seafood and is priced mid-range. They do not take credit cards. It's a convenient and pleasant outside dining experience and Paolo is accomodating to his customers. Try the Limoncello after dinner!

We had the opportunity to eat her several times during our vacation. My son is disabled so it may it easier just to stay by the pool. The food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. I believe it a wife an husband team who run it. We really enjoyed it. I think we tried everything from pizza to chicken marsala. Staff was very professional

Well. What started out as lunch turned into an all day event. Lunch was great, try the bruschetta and the pizza they were great! Then all day at the huge pool with Paulo taking care of everything just led to an early dinner! We decided to have his pasta, made fresh, we were not disappointed. This is definitely worth a visit for lunch or dinner and Paulo puts in the care and effort!

We again stayed two weeks at the Sapphire Beach Club, Planeta's location by the pool. We try to eat only once in a restaurant during each visit, as there are so many fine ones in the area. However, we had two enjoyable dinners at Planeta.and two lunches served at the pool. The ham and mushroom pizza was wonderful as was the chicken Caesar with homemade dressing. At our first dinner we shared their wonderful calamari enhanced with thin strips of fried zucchini. I had the lasagne and my friend had the linguini al vongole (with clams). Paolo gave us a tiramisu for us to take to the room. It was the best I have ever had. For our last night in SXM Paolo made a fish stew which was not on the menu and then we each had the veal Milanese. Both were outstanding. I would recommend Planeta to anyone who enjoys Sicilian cuisine prepared by a Sicilian, and at fair prices. A winner in all respects.

I am a long time owner at Sapphire Beach Club And Resorts and have seen it through its best and worst days. I will give a detailed review on Sapphire Beach after my visit is completed. What is interesting is that Paolo has a restaurant here that is very limited but the pasta that he makes is excellent and probably the best I've had on the island. If you want pasta cooked by a true Sicilian with excellent ingredients stop by and try this restaurant which has a beautiful setting overlooking the ocean. Hopefully he will continue to stay at Sapphire Beach. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
