We were staying at Royal Westmoreland and passed the sign for this place daily which is located in the Sugar Hill development on the West Coast. Somehow the sign never invited us in but a tennis partner suggested the restaurant was great for Sunday lunch with great views of the West Coast. We couldn't make Sunday lunch but went for lunch on another day and we were not disappointed. We were reassured when we arrived to see the proprietor of one of the top 2 restaurants on the island having lunch at Sassafras! The position of the restaurant by the lovely pool with great views over the coast is idyllic and matched by the food and service. Well worth a trip.

We enjoyed our meals, and were fortunate to have chosen an evening with live music which always adds to the ambiance. The restaurant overlooks a beautiful pool which overlooks the whole coast. My husband's catch of the day was amazing, my red snapper was good, but not excellent. We were the first ones in the restaurant and yet it seemed our service was slow, and we had trouble getting the bill. Otherwise we were happy. It is inside a gated community, Sugar Hill. I think its quiet because few people try it as they think they won't be allowed into the complex. We had a wonderful evening, and would go again.

We had a great lunch here. Excellent food in a totally relaxing environment, where the views of the island's greenery inland made a change from the sands and seas of similar restaurants. A bit of a shame we couldn't continue our time here with a languid half hour in the pool which the restaurant overlooks; apparently that's for residents only. Nonetheless we will definitely come back for more.

We always love a hidden gem and Sassafrass is no exception but it is exceptional! Open only two evenings a week, Sassafrass is beautifully nestled into the luxury neighborhood of Sugar Hill, across the road from Royal Westmoreland. This dining experience is glorious. The live music wafted across the infinity pool, the dining room and over the roof tips of the multi-million dollar homes in the restaurants wake. But enough about the scenery as it hardly competes with the terrific service and sensational food!
Last night, the house Gnocchi appetizer was so fantastic that I nearly changed my order mod dining! I did not, however and salvaged the chance to experience the best crab cakes I have ever eaten. The Tuna Tartar was perfect with the minor exception that it begged for some savory crisps. My husbands catch of day, Mahi Mahi, was cooked to perfection.
We are fortunate to own a Villa in lovely Sugar Hill and are delighted that the owners of Sassafrass have graced our neighborhood with this fine dining establishment;)
Happy Dining, Regina Kirshbaum
