The old brick building gives the restaurant a very romantic and unique ambiance . There is a good selection of food for about any taste. I was pleasantly surprised at the great wine selection. Food was Caribbean traditional and American and very tasty. Service was extremely slow but the whole feel of the place made up for it, sipping on... More

This used to be our favourite restaurant on Tortola but unfortunately it's standards has fallen. We went on Valentine's night and were very disappointed. The restaurant had too many tables and was very noisy and crammed. The service was very show and the food was just okay and the portions were very small. Sadly it's no longer the romantic place...

You came on Valentines night, one of the busiest nights of the restaurant year, and it was very busy. And you were surprised ? And you say the crowd was noisy. Indeed we remember hearing lots of them talking and laughing. There was a small band playing romantic songs as well. And people were dancing. Those are the sounds of... More

This place is worth a visit. While the food at Scaramouche is better, the homely ambience here makes for an excellent evening. We had blackened fresh mahi mahi which was good without being great. Still, an excellent evening.

Loved both dinner and breakfast options the next day. The building is all restored. its romantic and intimate, with open veranda styling... More

We ate here many times during our stay on the island. The food is excellent and very fresh. Lobster are caught each day fresh by divers (so they aren't sitting in traps). The lobster Thermador is great. The soups are amazing as are the daily fish specials.

Sugar Mill was beautiful. They had some mix-ups in the kitchen, the owner was very friendly and caring and worked everything out for us. The food was very good.

Make sure you arrive early to have a pre-dinner drink on the open air colonial style gazebo, overlooking the water. We were a party of six and the meal reviews were varied, with the highlight being the Conch served in a curry style with garlic butter and rice. Steak was cooked perfectly and catch of the day (Wahoo) was delicious.... More

Loved this restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very pleasant. The only complaint I had was the appetizers (while delicious) were VERY small for the amount we paid.
