I've enjoyed a pleasant meal, full of flavour, after a long day of travel to get to our resort nearby. With my nerves a bit frazzled, the friendly (albeit relaxed), attentive service, calmed my real-world anxiety and brought me into vacation time. The food is well prepared, full of flavour and love for life. The live music was particularly perfect... More

The French Onion soup and the spaghetti bologanese was delicious with garlic bread. Yummy. The Staff are the best polite and very nice to speak with. Love this place. The wines are very good. The Best is the French Martini!

They have the best steak and eggs for breakfast, hands down. The steak was well-seasoned and tender. My husband and I ate here two days in a row and each time it was cooked to perfection. I tried the belgian waffle without the whip cream and strawberries and I found it a little tough so I ordered sausage and eggs... More

Ate here a few times as it was 50 feet from my hotel. Had a good steak at the bar. When eating at a table, service was slow to extremely slow. For instance, count on waiting about 15 minutes for your check after you ask for it. That being said the food was pretty good. A little on the expensive... More

Better places to go (Toppers or The Greenhouse) but we had $8 coupons to use. The food is good but the service is a bit lacking. No refills on drinks. They don't really watch if you need anything else. Nice enough staff. Just wasn't attentive.

This is our go to for breakfast! We usually just stop in for ham and cheese croissant, almond croissants or chocolate croissants to go and bring pool side. Every day they are made fresh and are amazing. We also get lattes or mimosas and bloody Mary's. They are also great for dinner time. I highly suggest the Bon Appetit pizza-... More

Food was good, service was slow, price was high. Why aminumum of 100 characters? I don't want to discourage anyone from trying a restaurant that I was not happy with so why bother

On an island with over 400 places to eat you could do better. However, if you're at the Simpson Bay Resort it's hard to beat the short walk! My fish was OK but the rice was dry.
