I really like this restaurant, it’s at the beach, started with a very generous glass of wine and some calamari which was excellent. Instead of being breaded and fried it was prepared with spinach garlic and some red pepper it was great. I had Jamaica pork loin my wife had salmon in a tomato pesto sauce her dish was outstanding, mine was good but seemed like a home cooked meal not up to par for eating out. We finished with a creme brûlée and a latte. I would really recommend this restaurant.

The food was so mediocre, we've had better meals from airport ready made boxed meals. one menu special was inedible! we shared the other item and it was so odd-tasting we left some on the plate. The salad starter was a sad bunch of lettuce mix thrown on a plate with some goat cheese... thoughtless and quite honestly not something I would serve a guest in my home, let alone charge someone at a restaurant. The place was quite empty, dinner service took forever, and sadly the long long awaited meal, a disaster. NEVER AGAIN!

We had been to this restaurant last year and we were really impressed. So we decided to go again this year. I made a reservation for 8;00 o clock through opentable. When we got there about three minutes after eight no one greeted us. There were three tables of two and a table of four all sitting waiting. After a couple of minutes some came I told him we had a reservation for eight. And he said we could sit inside a table of six or wait till he cleaned a table of two. In another words they did not acknowledge our reservation nor were they ready for us. It took about fifteen minutes for the couple in the table of two to leave and get our table ready. In the mean time other people arrived and were seated inside. There was only one server. We order a Bloody Mary and a glass of white wine. Well since the waiter was taking care of the other tables and he also had to make the drink it took for ever to bring our drinks. By the way there was no water no bread no order had been received. I could go on and on. Service was terrible food was ok mashed potatoes were hard vegetable seem to come out from a frozen bag and placed in a microwave. Too bad it used to be top notch.

The Air Conditioner was either semi-broke or set at about 85 degrees. No one had an answer. Very uncomfortable.

Food is good and fresh, staff is pleasant and helpful. However, no reason was given as to the sub-tropical indoor heat.

If they fix the A/C or keep it near 72, we would love to return.

The Green Seafood curry over Rice noodles was very tasty! Also Great for those of us that are Gluten intolerant! The server was very attentive but not over intrusive! They may need a better bread for the table... while nice and garlicky, it was just a sliced wheat bread with the garlic sauce!
The Seafood Gumbo was well prepared but the tasty jasmine rice was swimming in the sauce , maybe ask for rice with Gumbo on the side? But overall a very nice dinner with my wife.
Please try this gem out!

Food was very good except for the escargot. They were tough and fairly tasteless. It was a very rainy night so there were very few patrons. I think on a busy night it wou;ld be very noisy. The wine was excellent and reasonable.

Delicious food & beautiful view on the beach! The waiter was great, don't expect fast service here. This is a place where you come and enjoy and take your time to eat. Everything was great, the wine, the food, the apps, dessert! I got the Fish Stew which was fresh and made to order!
The ambiance was nice with the ocean breeze right there!

We went for dinner and the place was nearly empty. It took over an hour from when we ordered for the main course to arrive. The food was so-so. The escargot was chewy and flavorless. The sea bass special was over cooked and served with rice that was pretty bland. I wouldn’t go again. The only nice thing I can say is that it has a beautiful ocean view.

Sugar Reef has been one of our favorite restaurants for years , but we were disappointed with one item at our latest dinner there. The mussels were not as good as we remembered them - too large and lacking the usual taste. Everything else - the snapper, beet salad, wine - were quite good.
