I wound up here because I wanted to try lionfish. After asking around, this was one of two recommended locations. It was a little tricky to find (for a non-local). I was seated at a table by the open window. I had a gorgeous view and a cool breeze. Because it was the off-season, I also had the restaurant to myself. The decor was simple but elegant and appreciated after nearly a week of more casual dining locations.

The food was very good. The bread came early as well as a amuse-bouche. I drank my virgin pina colada while I waited for my lion fish. The fish was a mild disappointment. It was prepared perfectly but I couldn't tell it apart from several whitefish varieties I was already familiar with. I ended up leaving the meal abruptly (see note below), but really enjoyed the small tastes of everything I tried.

Note: This place was really hard to review as I got really sick part way through dinner. This is NOT the restaurant's fault as I simply slipped into a migraine after a day of diving and not enough water.

The conch chowder is amazing! The bacon wrapped chicken with prosciutto was good but the chicken could have used a few more minutes in the oven. It was cooked thoroughly but a tad tough. Didn't have enough room to try dessert, unfortunately. The view outside is nice. Reservations are recommended. The owner and her staff are very friendly and welcoming. Pricing is a bit expensive for the entrees.

Just love serendipity. The ambiance, the staff, the service, the food, the location is first class. I went back in June and on my last day 9th June was looking forward to having lunch and was disappointed to find it close. Serendipity don't open on a Saturday for lunch :-(. God willing I'm going back in October for my birthday and hope I won't be disapointed and it will be opened. Keep up the good work. Highly recommended.

Awesome place with great views and a great breeze :-). Food was excellent and service was good. We were staying in Frigate Bay and this restaurant was a short cab ride away. Definitely would recommend dinner here.
