Fodor's Review

Built in 1908 as the Petra Plantation House and transformed into the island's first upscale establishment decades ago, this grande dame evokes bygone grandeur sans pretension. The interior rooms, awash in crystal, recall its plantation-house origins. Outside, hundreds of sparkling lights adorning the gazebos compete with the starry sky. Live nightly music and rumors of a charming blond ghost trailing white chiffon complete the picture. This is a place to propose or let someone down easily. Expertly executed classics include panfried foie gras with ice wine–raspberry compote, broiled lobster tail with smoked bell-pepper butter, and filet mignon with green peppercorn sauce. The subtle yet complex flavor interactions, stellar service, and encyclopedic if stratospherically priced wine list ensure legendary status. Nightly happy hours with discounted tapas are a sensational bargain.
