This restaurant is actually part of a hotel, although it can be used by anyone. It is a multi-levelled, white-painted timber building which is open to the surrounding gardens and Bacolet Bay on one side. There was a lovely breeze blowing through the restaurant when we visited. Lots of birds fly around in the trees close to you, and the gardens below look lush and green.

Service was fairly prompt, friendly, and we were happy with the balance they struck between leaving you alone and making sure you weren't waiting too long for anything. The atmosphere was casual and pleasant.

The food was fresh and tasty, although a bit more than we would've paid at some of the smaller establishments on the island. I had a beef roti, which came with wedges and salad, and I thought it was flavourful and well-spiced (but not hot), but it was a substantial portion which I couldn't finish. The waitress offered to box the left-overs up for us though, which was very welcome. My Dad had the seafood salad, and although it was nice, given its higher price-tag we thought it was a bit stingy with the amount of fish and seafood. There is plenty of choice on the menu, and prices are clearly displayed. Bear in mind that they do add service charges and taxes to the bill though. Desserts were mostly European-influenced, but were a reasonable price and size.

I would recommend visiting Café Havana if you're in the area, as it's a pleasant place to eat with a good standard of food, but maybe not if you're on a tight budget.

Ate in this restaurant 3 times during our stay. A tad pricey but the food was great. We had the steak twice as it was so tasty and cooked to perfection. Comes with Parmesan mash but we changed it to chips. We also had fish twice and the seafood pasta which again were lovely. The staff were fab especially the little waitress couldn’t fault her professionalism

Nice tasting food but not a lot of it,needs to be less of a la Carte and more ordinary.Also a bit over priced shame as their is no where else near at hand for the Bacolet beach club guests to eat .Maybe that’s why?
