When you find a piece of paper/tissue submerged in your cocktail and ask how it got there and you are told: 1. I’m sorry by the waitress who brought the drink 2. The cocktail maker seals his lips 3. The bar tender ignores you but...as soon as the manager comes she claims she saw how the drink was made and there was no tissue in it … suggesting a miracle happened and a piece of paper appeared in my drink! In the end I deduced that the miracle was telling me that this is not the place to go, as they have poor sanitation! Did they wash the glass or wiped it with a tissue while it was wet hence some got stuck on the glass? Or was it a human error, but then one could have easily owned up to the mistake … Accusing a customer, that’s just wrong, in so many levels, a sign poor customer service! So was it sanitation or customer service? Or both? And am I the first person to receive such service is a supposed to be one of the high end restaurants? Or this one of the want-to be, faking their way to your pocket! I’m very disappointed and really hope they’ll step up their game and educate their servants and sanitation. For now, I’ll refrain and not recommend the restaurant to my good people, considering I was there to review the place for an upcoming gig!More

Service is a bit slow; understandable as it is hot as hell, nobody wants to run. We ordered grilled fillet and a prawn salad. Presented beautifully, cooked even better. Salad was fresh, rich and appetizing. The location perfect and the set up was very tropical....We are still speaking about this excellent meal and the 40 $ we spent would not be enough for one person back home. We defined fine dining in the price range because it is certainly very expensive for the locals. In fact, all diners were foreigners.More

My brother in-law and I had such a great time dining at this restaurant. The view was so stunning that I had to FaceTime my mother and sister. It was like a painting. The service and the food were also wonderful. I will definitely return!

Lots of seafood items. I has the tuna salad. Very tasty. The tuna was prepared to my specifications: medium rare. Service was pretty good. I enjoyed the ocean view.

The best part is the location and we were able to take many nice photographs with the sunset in the background. The food was good but if you can't take chills, make that very well known to the staff as the local spice is very,...very hot!More

Had to send our meet back twice. very overcooked and then basically raw. We did not finish our meal. And still paid full price. Left the place very hungry.

We have been here a couple of times. The food and service is good and the prices reasonable. The restaurant is right next to the ocean so there is usually a nice breeze. I ordered a bottle of cold dry white wine - the wine...was, however, not cold but the waitress brought ice cubes. It is a nice place for lunch with family, friends or business associates. There is always free parking available at Slipway.More

The Price is no problem but make sure you let them know ahead of time when you would like to eat otherwise you might wait a lot or end up getting served at completely different times each.
