The location is on of the best beaches on the island and probably the most accessible one. Within a mile you have four of the islands seven best hotels and this one is truly on of them. A great and cozy restaurant with stunning ocean views, small but super menu, and five star service. We loved it and will be... More

Over the years this restaurant has redefined itself many times. This time they hit the mark. The setting is right on a beach. Unfortunately the night we were there it was really windy. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. As an appetizer we shared a tuna tataki. For dinner my husband had a fabulous risotto with a carpaccio of... More

Arrived early -- after day of travel--and enjoyed sunset on the beach with glass of wine and small bites from kitchen. Attentive service, good wine selection and salt- crust fish was delicious.

An amazing setting. Ask to be seated on the beach facing the water. Their fish of the day is always a revelation particularly when prepared in a salt crust.

We're the first couple there. Beautiful place. The moon rise over the bay ( Grand Cul de Sac) was breathtaking. The staff friendly but training was questionable.

Went for drinks in the lounge. Although not cheap, good selection of cocktails and wines by the glass. Drinks came with some food, small Italian appetizers that were pretty good. Nice open air setting.

The location is perfect--palms, a view over the water. The food is very good--more Italian than in years past, and well executed. (In fact better than Isola--see separate review.) Not cheap--a bottle of Domaine Ott here will set you back E105 (versus E65 at the Hideaway). To be expected--at a hotel, great location. We enjoyed it. The bad taste came... More

Description
The restaurant serves a casually elegant Mediterranean Brasserie, taking advantage of the bounty of the Caribbean Sea while incorporating an Italian accent due to the closeness with its sister property in Lake Como and the nationality of the chef and owners. At the helm of Restaurant Le Sereno, Chef Alex Simone will deliver simple and beautifully presented dining experiences. Chef's classic Mediterranean dishes will be elevated with the freshest ingredients and fit perfectly with the restaurant's beachfront setting, including dishes like Steak Tartare and Vitel Toné. The menu will highlight an array of vibrant flavors in dishes like the Poisson en Croute de Sel (fish baked in salt-crust with Lake Como aromatic herbs) and Herb-Crusted Sea Scallops with Saffron. The Italian accent will be seen and tasted throughout the menu, most notably in the restaurant's signature Gnocchi Le Sereno, traditional of Lake Como and made from unprocessed buckwheat flour with a tomato-sage sauce, as sage is the typical aromatic herb of the lake and Chef Simone's famous Lobster Linguine from Il Baretto, here made with fresh local spiny lobster that arrives daily to Le Sereno's private beach.
