Really enjoyed our meal at S3. We traveled with a toddler and they were incredibly accommodating in all aspects (from food to seating and all in between).

I’ve been here for brunch & dinner, & LOVED the food. The smoked Gouda Mac is amazing. I loved the cheese sauce & the noodles they used for Mac. I’ll be back :)

Ate Christmas Dinner here because we were staying in the hotel and there wasn't anything else open. It was good that we had a reservation, otherwise I think we would have been eating at the kitchen counter. The menu was 'too cool'. Yes, there was...More

Stop there if you want great food with breaking the bank. The staff is great, the food was also and the view you can't beat, it is right across from the beach.

We went for lunch and ended up staying for a few hours. The staff at the bar was fantastic. Fun to chat with and great personalities. The sushi was great too. We will definitely return!

Eaten here 5 or 6 times, most often sitting at the bar. Very nice setting right across from the beach. Food has always been quite good. Both bar and table service is very friendly, but servers don't check back very frequently, water and even cocktails...More

Park at the hotel. The restaurant validates your ticket. The hotel charges you $7 to park instead of $20.

They definitely have a private room. They also have an outdoor section on the side of the restaurant that can be a semi private area. I had inquired about the private room but as lovely as it was it wasn't large enough for... More

S3, where sun, surf and sand uniquely fuse with steak, seafood and sushi for a perfect combination of island atmosphere and globally-influenced, sea-inspired fare. A wood burning grill lights up the place and sets fire to the menu offering Grilled Octopus, Skirt Steak, Jerk Chicken Skewers, Shrimp Toast and more. Let your eyes do the ordering, via an expansive raw bar featuring fresh-caught delights like Tiradito Wahoo and Yellowtail, Snapper or snack plates like a Trio of Dips (whipped feta, chickpea, and roasted eggplants) or Goat Cheese Cakes. A moderately priced menu serves up a variety of small plates. DJ - 8pm-12am Friday and Saturday Acoustic Duo Sunday 3pm-6pm
