The restaurant is lovely with all the open doors and the grounds are beautiful. The food was good but not outstanding. The service was not good. Dishes weren't removed promptly and drinks weren't refilled or even offered to be refilled. It seems like they might...More

Go for the Tuna, Crisp on the outside and rare on the inside. Very flavorful. Relaxing and elegant. Don't remember what the other in our party had because I was too involved with mine but there were no complaints.

This used to be a premiere restaurant years ago. It is only occasionally open now, and the service and food are fair at best. They can't compete with the newly opened ZoZo's, which has taken over management (private) at Caneel Bay's Sugar Mill restaurant. Service...More
