I ate lobsters done in different styles on 2 nights and I enjoyed them both! Presentation and delivery time was very good and impressive.

Great food just wish a few more people would visit it, if you are eating alone not much atmosphere. Fish choice good . Staff very helpful.

Fresh Tasty Kenyan Fish. Im sure there was a veggie option but my eyes popped out when I saw my meal. Top quality produce. I could not get enough of it! VIP service: Even for a stingly Scotsman I left a decent tip. Exceptional staff!...A wonderfully magical ocean themed restaurant area. Laid out to look as though Captain Hook could be over the horizon. If Aquaman had his own Batcave it would look like Smugglers Cove. You won't be disappointed.More

The food was really good, I had the calamari appetizer as well as the lobster for my main dish and both dishes were really great, cooked well and a good size portion. The down part of my experience was the long time it took for...the food to be prepared even though we were the only people in the restaurant. It even took them forever to bring our check at the end.More

Had a meal in this beautiful restaurant which is set in the rocks as we were resident at the Voyager Hotel. The meal was well presented and was very tasty. Had Calamari to start with and then the seafood platter which was huge. Could not...manage a desert! The only down side to this eatery was the fact that guests of the hotel were walking through the restaurant in their swimwear as diners were eating their evening meal. Very off putting.More

We had starters and then shared a seafood platter. Food was tasty and the lemon sorbet between courses was a nice touch.

The food at the restaurant was good, but took a long time to arrive - more than 30 minutes from the time we ordered. The lobster was tasty, but the consistency of the meat was like one where the lobster has been frozen. If you...are paying by card, you will have to walk all the way to the hotel reception to settle the bill. A big plus for non seafood lovers / those allergic to sea food, is that you can order from the other (Italian) restaurant menu, and be served at Smugglers.More
