Cozy little restaurant, right on the beach! Food is amazing and so is the service. One of our favorites when we visit the Island. Tiny, tiny seating outside. Advice, get there early, watch the sunset, make a reservation for after the sun sets. You get the best of both!!

My wife and I had a truly memorable dinner at Beach Bistro. The restaurant is a hidden gem directly on the beach. We had the fixed dinner with lobster escargot and rack of lamb with wine selections by the chef. Delicious and well presented dishes. Great service, expensive but worth it. The best meal that we’ve had on AMI.

The food was really good-the server and service were a bit lacking. Wish you could pick your own server.

Pretty spectacular. Dinner on the beach during sunset. We were 1 of 2 tables outside. Enjoyed an amazing sunset while enjoying a fantastic lamb dinner. Great for a special occasion. Very pricy. Bill was >$300 before tip, but a one of a kind night out. Service was excellent.

Terrific location to catch a romantic sunset, dinner was spectacular, best prepared veal chop I have had in years. Wife had grouper and it was outstanding. Sean was a terrific host, staff was outstanding too.
