When reading all the reviews, and the big sign in the lobby I could barely wait to get reservations. The food was good, but I was expecting so much more seafood.

Great atmosphere; right on the beach. Food delicious & service good. Only negative point is that for most of the dishes, there is an extra charge. For example, for shrimp curry it was $20. This limited all inclusive choices.

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.

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.
