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 is that rare restaurant that evokes bygone grandeur sans pretension. The interior rooms, awash in crystal, recall its plantation-house origins. Outside, hundreds of sparkling lights adorn the gazebos to 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. You'll find expertly executed classics such as pan-fried foie gras with ice wine raspberry compote, broiled lobster tail with smoked bell-pepper butter, or filet mignon with green peppercorn sauce. The subtle yet complex flavor interactions, stellar service, and encyclopedic if stratospherically priced wine list ensure legendary landmark status. Nightly happy hours with discounted tapas are a sensational bargain.
