    We made a reservation for dinner through Open Table. One problem. When we arrived they said they don't serve dinner. They had no idea how Open Table took the reservation.

    Kalatua is very nicely done. However it is very expensive. The food is just ok. The service is mediocre at best. I had to get up and actually ask for a server to take my order. After that initial order I was never asked if we needed anything else. We were passed by many many times and tried to get someone to take our drink order. We were ignored. We wound up leaving early and going elsewhere.

    The food is excellent here. The cocktails as well. The service is friendly but it’s sometimes hard to get someone’s attention. The view is great and the fans help for staying cool. Bit of a trek from the parking, but the golf cart comes pretty regularly. It’s mad expensive for a lunch beach restaurant, that would be my only complaint. The boutique’s fashion presentation between the tables is lovely. But nothing for a male couple to purchase there. I would recommend for a nice beach afternoon.

    When we arrived for lunch we anticipated that Kalatua would live up to its billing and in some areas it did. The setting is great and the atmosphere with a dj and fashion show entertaining guests throughout lunch was also nice. The menu is good and the quality although somewhat inconsistent did feature some stars like the grilled fish. The service left a lot to be desired. We were seated at the time of our reservation but being seated and being served are two very different things here. It took 2 hours to complete a 2 course lunch which created some problems with our appointments for water sports at their affiliate, H2O (a really good place for unusual water activities like Seabobs, e-foils & kayaks). They explained that our service was delayed because larger parties were given priority. Given the fact that we were a party of 6, I can’t imagine how long a party of 2 might have to wait. We may try them again because of their location and setting. I hope this first experience was a one-off because it would be nice to have a good beachfront lunch option in the Cupecoy/Mullet Beach area.

    Kalatua is really a MUST SEE/MUST DO if you’re on the island. It’s pretty expensive and I would say the value for the money isn’t really there, however it is quite the experience and truly beautiful. We had an ocean view seat and it was amazing. They were out of several items but we had the Burrata with truffle and that was great. The steaks were pretty good as well as the snapper. Our waitstaff was awesome - our waiter was fun and helpful.

    We had beach chairs for the day and ate at the restaurant. Beautiful beach and enjoyed the views and swimming. Partner and I had seabass for lunch and it was very well prepared. Wine list is smaller but has a good variety of wines. The cocktail list is great and the Kalatiki drink was delicious. There was a DJ started around 1 that created a nice vibe. Some vendors on the beach become more aggressive in the afternoon where a polite “no thank you” would not ward them off, but one of the staff members stepped in and asked them to leave us alone which we greatly appreciated. There is also a table later in the day for a full massage and a very nice boutique. It is pricey, more like beach clubs on the French side. We also had to ask 4 times for an extra umbrella for shade. Being in the front row is direct in the sun all day. There were other choices to be out of the sun further back but it was too busy for us to move. Overall we had a very enjoyable day.

    The staff are fabulous and the ambiance is lovely. However the food is overpriced and dreadful. Ordered the Angus burger medium rare and got it raw in the middle and cold. Poorly seasoned and it didn’t rest so it was dripping blood and fat. The server was great in taking in back and they kept the same meat and cooked it more but it still wasn’t good. If you can’t do a burger well fat chance you can cook anything else. Fries are also packaged and not fresh cut. For $30 usd it’s an embarrassing meal and we were so disappointed. Save your money and just order the drinks which are great.

    Nice ….but overpriced. Reminded me of the old Palm Beach - which was a favorite for my guests. However, Kalatua doesn’t make the grade for me to come back in a hurry…..just being honest…I’ve in Sxm for over 20 years so know all the restaurants.

    Hello, thanks for your review and for visiting us so often! Very happy to read that you had a good time. Not sure what happens in regards of your booking the first time, with "did not match"? As far as the third visit on Oct 31, we actually did not expect to be so busy and we are still not completely fully staffed :) Thanks again and we do hope to see you again very soon. Kalatua Team
