    Sit outside and order at the indoor bar to avoid waiting — plus the sunset views actually seem better because the windows from inside are blocked by the umbrellas. Bar menu is pretty yummy!

    Cool & trendy sunset place. Tough to park just before sunset. Get there early and have a few drinks. If you walk on the beach to watch the sunset, make sure you're not blocking someone behind you

    Overpriced and the duck was way over cooked. $100 for 2 entrees an app and 1 dessert. The fish spread and creme brulee were very good though.

    The ribeye was delicious and cooked to perfection (medium). Comments about it not being a proper pub because it serves just beer and wine should be embarrassed and clearly untraveled..

    Best location to eat with great views. Food and menu is decent. Nothing to write home about. We find the staff is always very friendly. Expect $18-$25 per plate.

    I have no idea what wine based vodka is, but if you ask the barman outside he may get tetchy. Probably because he's been asked a billion times. Wouldn't hurt him to try it then would it really...?

    Do not order a margarita and expect tequila. It's a wine base. No liquor license. Also do not order any fish boiled in the island's water. Terrible taste. Great place to watch the sunset though.

    Wow what a racist bouncer. He would not let us park to eat lunch and drink wine. My Indian husband thought he was discriminated against.We took our wine and food money to the resort bar at South Seas.

    Do yourself a favor and come at sunset and sit outside. Buy drinks at the outside bar. Place your food order at the inside bar and wait for your name to be called on the intercom. No waiters outside.

    To go food not allowed on beach, so just get it "to go" for home and discreetly walk towards your "house next door" if wait for table too long. Great place for sunsets. Bring blanket.
