Stopped by last evening with hubby. Enjoyed the fever dessert which was spectacular in the juxtaposition of hot brownie like cake and lava against creamy vanilla ice cream. The flavors were well matched and tantalizing. Not wanting to miss the signature drinks we also enjoyed the yum yum - a red blend with Belgian chocolate rimmed glass also superbly presented... More

OMG-what an experience! We don´t have anything comparable in Germany therefore i was really impressed by the appearence. When you enter there is dimmed light all over which gives kind of a romantic-erotic atomsphere. The menu comes with an Ipad and you have a few choices. I took the traditional chocholate Lava cake with vanilla icecream. I have never tasted... More

The name says it all.. It was a perfect speak-easy atmosphere dark cool so you could cuddle. Dark chocolate rimmed wine glasses, and hand crafted desserts were to die for.

This is our 3rd trip to Better Than Sex, and the desserts have been outstanding each time. I believe they have done some renovations as well and our booth was a more secluded date for us. Highly recommended!

We all wanted to go here and had read positive reviews, now it's best to book as it does get booked up. I feel this is a real tourist type of place, I don't know what was more sickly sweet the not very nice desserts or all the service. Every person we talked to was being overly suggestive and it...

We went for an extended girls weekend and decided to pop in here after finding reviews of it on TripAdvisor. We made reservations online and they confirmed the reservations via text which was so convenient! We got there a little early (about 10 minutes prior to our reservation time) and they asked if we wanted immediate seating in their speak-easy... More

We had been meaning to try but just had not gotten here. A little awkward with our eight-year-old reading some of the names, but not a deterrent. We had red velvet cheesecake, apple crisp, and peanut butter pie. They were very good. A bit bricey, but portions are large. Shelby served us and she was fantastic.

I have been to Better Than Sex multiple times, it's a great place to take someone the first time they visit the island. It is however, a little pricey for a regular thing. Dessert is good, but leaves you turned off to sugar for a little while after.

The deserts were good but the cost was outrageous! Once and done. We will not be returning. There are many other places to go in KW that are more cost effective.
