Very nice location with a beautiful view of the bay and it’s transparent waters. The food was delicious and the service very good but I had the feeling the staff was forçou-se little too much as if it was not natural to them. Please don’t take me wrong but for a holiday destination I was expecting a more relaxed atmosphere.

This restaurant was so perfect the first night we went there, we went back the following day which was sadly a mistake.
The manager is charming and greets you warmly. We had a table on the balcony overlooking the sea. A huge ray swam up to the kitchen to be fed scraps while we were eating, wonderful to see and a real highlight. To start I had the scallops and lobster cooked in Pernod. This was the best thing I ate in Jamaica, beautiful textures and flavours. I followed this with a tuna steak, I was asked how I would like it cooked and was duly presented with a rare fillet. I finished with their lava chocolate cake. This was a dark chocolate fondant with a white chocolate sauce and a mango and dark chocolate sauce rippled across the plate. Everything was just to die for. It was fine dining prices which meant that despite just drinking water we were charged £60 a head but the first night was really worth it.

We made the mistake of returning. The ray didn't turn up. I had squid to start with which was overcooked to the point that some of it was inedible. For main the scallops were good but a membrane had been left on, making one of them chewy and unpleasant. I asked for the dessert I had wanted the previous night, a white chocolate meringue but they were in the process of removing it from the menu so I went for the same as the previous night. They left off the mango and the chocolate sauce was not as good.
I have kept the five stars for the review because the first night was so good but the lesson is never ever go back. Sadly the second night cost just the same.

This place is the definition of customer satisfaction. I was greeted at the outside entrance with a warm and welcoming smile. The ambiance was everything!!! The subtle music playing in the background coupled with the decor and lighting of the dining area set the perfect romantic setting that a couple could wish for. The food was mouthwatering, I enjoyed every bit of it as the flavors teased my palate and had me wanting more. The staff are great and they continually checked upon us throughout our visit. I got engaged here and I will most definitely visit again soon.
