My family and I came for dinner and the service was pretty poor. Management didn't seem bothered that we were sending our food back and they couldn't even get a pizza right. How can a pizza taste bad? We asked for toppings on a pizza and they came separate and then my wife asked for a drink and got something... More

We had lunch and dinner here while staying at Sugar Beach. Nice relaxed atmosphere. If you're told the restaurant is full, it might be worth turning up just in case, as we did, as there were plenty of tables available. I think some people book 'just in case'. Food was good but not superb, however as a whole, we had... More

My wife and I enjoy lunch here most days when we are on holiday @ Sugar Beach. Pizza and pasta really good and very good service.

I rang and confirmed a booking for 6pm for drinks. When we arrived we were told the restaurant wasn't open and there was no booking. Very disappointing and badly organised - made all the more annoying as the restaurant looked really nice and we had been looking forward to having a relaxed drink on the beach.

Staying at Sugar Beach make sure you book this restaurant on a couple of occasions at least. Setting great, staff superb and a nice relaxing walk back to the bars at Sugar Beach after choosing from the great menu. Make sue you book.

A lovely place set on the beach which provides gorgeous view during the day and in the evening. It is very popular so do book if you want to go here at night. We were staying in La Pirogue and this became a firm favourite for lunch for us. A wood burning oven ensures pizzas and pasta dishes are cooked... More

We ate one evening and it was beautiful, the setting was amazing and the staff were very attentive. It was a shame my husband is such a fussy eater and pasta is not one of them so we ate on one night as he had the steak. I could have eaten there every night. A must when staying at sugar... More
