Carambola Beach Club

Fodor's Review

This ultra-stylish restaurant unfurls sensuously down South Friar's Bay, like something out of St. Tropez. More casual lunches take full advantage of the beachfront setting, with white tents and hedonistic beach beds. But nighttime is truly spectacular, as outdoor fiber-optic fountains enhance the visual flair of the vast, sleek-but-not-slick interior replete with eat-in wine cellar and tile-and-layered-wood sushi bar. You might start with intensely flavored butternut squash ravioli or one of the original maki, such as the fiery Calypso Bay roll (lobster, eel, avocado, chilli paste, and honey-mustard sauce). Seafood such as breaded grouper in orange beurre blanc is masterfully executed; nothing at Carambola is overcooked. The sole letdown is the wine list. Although it's the island's largest, it lacks imagination; however, the by-the-glass selections are at least reasonably priced (the stylish Provence rose, M de Minuty, is just $6), as are such prizes as the 2007 Antinori Cervaro della Sala.
