We went for dinner one night. Good service and view with outside seating. The roasted chicken and mash is really good. Also had the S3 drink sampler which was good as well.

Superb service and great food. Extensive wine and drink list but a little pricey. This is the place to go for all the beautiful people - open air patios and fireplaces and comfortable inside seating on multi levels.

This is a restaurant in a Hilton hotel. It has a nice outside seating with view to the beach. The food is average, nothing spacial about it, except that it is pricey. The service is amicable but slow.

Went to dinner with the wife and jr at S3 Sun Surf Sand. We had a really really nice dinner. The crispy octopus and Mac & cheese was super great. They had a special of clams and mussels that was AWESOME.

We really liked this restaurant, so much so that we ate here three nights during our stay. They do (good) things with Brussels sprouts that I would not have thought possible. The food was generally excellent and the place was buzzing each night. You need...More

The view from the restaurant is amazing, beach front dining with and indoor/outdoor bar and patio. We enjoyed the 3 drink sampler of specialty drinks and we also had the best Octopus Dish we've ever eaten here.

If its a busy time on the beach (which is ALWAYS), where can we park just to go to this restaurant? Can we park at the hotel?

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.
