We should have known when we were the only guests in the place. We were greeted and seated. So far, so good. We had already had a glass of wine before we arrived, so we went straight to the menus. The girls had baked snapper, which were just o.k. My friend had a piece of gristle they claimed was a steak (I believe he got three bites), and I had what was supposed to be calamari, but was squid flavored noodles, which were served cold.
The waiter turned up his nose and refused to return to the table, until he brought the bill. We has two glasses of red wine, and tot bottles of Sauvignon blanc.
We were charged for the entire bottle. When we called this to the attention of the waiter, he snatched the bill, corrected it and put it back on the table.
One extra point...Sun Beach Clubber was a beach restaurant before Irma serving lunch.
This place is in the village, and other than the name, has little to do with the original (but still trade on the name).
I do not normally give terrible reviews ( see my other reviews) but this restaurant I really wish would shut down and go away.

We decided to try this place as the greeter told us this was a "farm to table" type of restaurant. We did notice that the menu hadn't changed in 10 days which made us question this but we decided to give it a shot. We were greeted and seated quickly. We decided to order some appetizers this day. We ordered the calamari, frog legs and mussels. The calamari was by far the best thing we ordered although incredibly salty. The chef said there was no salt or anchovy in the dish but it was almost inedible. A small portion was remade for us which was much better. Wish the entire dish was this good. The frog legs were under seasoned but were cooked well and tasted good. The mussels...over cooked and incredibly strong. We each had a couple but didn't finish them. Perhaps we caught the on an off day. We always give places a second chance so we will probably try them again in the next year or 2.

We ate at Sun Beach Clubber Nights last evening. The atmosphere was so pleasant and the food and service was excellent. I have to say this is the best restaurant in Orient Village by far. I had the sea bass and my wife had the trio that included salmon and scallops. Excellent

Nice to see this beach bar up and running! They are running without electricity, but we got ice cold drinks, beach chairs and an umbrella-what more could you want? They offer food, but it is from their restaurant in the village, so it takes a while and they batch order...we did not opt for food.
