good service, nice people and an absolutely gorgeous view. What more could you want. Try the steaks or lamb. Drinks were pretty good too.

The view is amazing, especially at sunset. We ordered fish as usual for the islands - a nice snapper in a coconut sauce. Our friends had mussels (she thought were delicious) and a caesar salad (he thought was one of the best - and he dines out frequently). The lobster fritters were average. There was pleasant live music and the... More

I had Caribbean lobster, which was good but a little dry. My wife had ribeye that was a lot better than mine. Mosquitos bite after dark, but they do everywhere in BVI.

Very disappointing to say the least!! We had read reviews and were really excited to give this place a try- we were not impressed!! We should have known when one of the customers let us know they didn't have any of the sunset drinks specials because it was cloudy and you couldn't see the sunset.. What!!?? Upon looking at the...

We are sorry about your experience and we would like an opportunity to make your experience a better one the next time you return to our shores. There is never an excuse for bad service; however, during that whole week, the whole island restaurants and food service venues were at a disadvantage on Tortola and other islands in the Caribbean...

Very good food. They had a good selection of fish/non fish entrees. I went with a jerk pork which was fantastic. Drink menu was pretty standard for the island. The reason to come is the food and view.

Upon arrival, we were seated at a nice table for two poolside, even though we were early for our reservation. We enjoyed our beverages as we watched the sun set over the islands. The food was delicious and the service was pleasantly paced and very friendly. I highly recommend this place for atmosphere, views, service and food quality.

First off, the food and view are simply outstanding. All 7 people in our group had something different from the menu...and all 7 were great. Fish, steak were recommended. The only issue with this place is the service. 2 waiters for the entire restaurant and they were full the Wednesday night we were there. This was beyond "island time" service...... More
