We had a lovely dinner at Lydias. They ran out of the type of fish we wanted but substituted another fish cooked the same way and it was delicious!

Lydia,s is not just a romantic setting it has incredible food, and it is a credit to Jolly Beach. We enjoyed the snapper so much we re-booked two night later, and I do not generally like fish.

Food was great. I had the whole plate snapper which was delicious. I am a desert person and was disappointed with what they offered for a chocolate moose. Service was quick and polite.

The food was good at this restaurant.You have to make reservations for it. It would be nice if they switched up the menu though so that we would have had a different choice the second time.

This was the best of the restaurants within the Jolly beach resort. The food was average and the service good. A lovely place to eat but plenty of room for improvement.

Hi. I think it is best you ask the restaurant direct although I would assume they are open as it is the beginning of their main season (Hurricane season finished). Wonderful food with tables on the beach candlelit and food... More

I'm sure they can accomodate you but you need to contact them direct about your specific date. They are very helpful.
