Fodor's Review

Chef Paul Owens's mastery is the foundation of one of the finest dining experiences in the Caribbean, with prices to match. Steep steps hug the cliff on which the restaurant sits to accommodate those arriving by yacht, and every candlelit table has a sea view. Starter suggestions include smoked salmon ravioli with garlic sauce or grilled portobello mushroom on greens with truffle vinaigrette; for the main course, try char-grilled swordfish with Thai yellow curry sauce,

seared tuna with saffron caper sauce and tomato coulis, or Cajun salmon with pesto cream sauce. Dessert falls into the sinful category, and service is impeccable. The prix-fixe menu will set you back $125 per person for a two-course meal or $145 per person for a three-course meal. Reserve days or even weeks in advance to snag a table at the front of the terrace for the best view.

A magical night... or at least it could have been!!! 1.Let's start with the constant reminders that I must vacate my seat by 8:30. I understand this when I am booking, I do not understand nor appreciate a whole night of reminders. 2. My ticket number for my reservations was not high enough to get a seat closer to the water, even though we were the first ones seated that night and many tables remained empty. 3. When asked the Sommelier for some

recommendations of wine the response was: It's all good. 4. Not one of the 4-5 different servers we had ever asked if we would like anything else. Perhaps another glass of wine would have been nice. 5. Reminding me half way through my meal that the eject hour was now 8:15 not 8:30 was not magical at all. I have wined and dined in many 5 star restaurants and I have never been made to feel that I am less than worthy of a table and a dining experience. I was prepared to spend a ridiculous amount of money that night however I decided to follow the many 'Cliff' imposed rules and did not! Ultimatley with the less than class act way we were treated as customers my overall experience that night was Poor.
