When reading all the reviews, and the big sign in the lobby I could barely wait to get reservations. The food was good, but I was expecting so much more seafood.

We ate here twice during our stay.The food and service was very good and together with the white wine made for a very pleasant evening.If you have catch of the day be warned it is not filleted.Well worth a visit.

Great atmosphere; right on the beach. Food delicious & service good. Only negative point is that for most of the dishes, there is an extra charge. For example, for shrimp curry it was $20. This limited all inclusive choices.

We had a lovely dinner at Lydias. They ran out of the type of fish we wanted but substituted another fish cooked the same way and it was delicious!

Lydia,s is not just a romantic setting it has incredible food, and it is a credit to Jolly Beach. We enjoyed the snapper so much we re-booked two night later, and I do not generally like fish.

Food was great. I had the whole plate snapper which was delicious. I am a desert person and was disappointed with what they offered for a chocolate moose. Service was quick and polite.

The food was good at this restaurant.You have to make reservations for it. It would be nice if they switched up the menu though so that we would have had a different choice the second time.

We were hoping for shrimp or crab but we also wanted to try local fish. We really enjoyed the Mahi-Mahi. It was out of this world good!!

Hi. I think it is best you ask the restaurant direct although I would assume they are open as it is the beginning of their main season (Hurricane season finished). Wonderful food with tables on the beach candlelit and food... More

I'm sure they can accomodate you but you need to contact them direct about your specific date. They are very helpful.
