    Have to agree with the above recommendations. As far as reservations go, if you arrive early you should be okay at most places. Bugaloe, Pelican Nest and Moomba are open air bars/restaurants on Palm Beach and I think rsvp's are accepted for larger groups, but the two of you should be able to walk right in. Hope you have a great time and take notes for your return trip!

    Good suggestions so far. For a really nice romantic dinner... try Madame Janette's.... ask for garden seating. With breakfast provided by your hotel... take a walk next door to the Pega Pega Beach Bar at Manchebo. Matthew's and Ricardo's are a short walk away for a nice casual dinner at attractive prices....

    My favorite restaurant is Barefoot, for toes in the sand dining. You can easily take a taxi to Barefoot from Bucuti.

    Reservations may not be needed at many of these places in June, but they don't hurt. Ask your concierge to call for you while you are on the island.

    Our first trip was in Dec. We were staying at Costa Linda so we walked to many places. Pizza Bobs was OK for the first night, part of the resort, outdoor seating. The Chophouse was great, very formal setting but shorts and a t-shirt were fine. Ricardo's was great, loved it there, lots of food and good. Matthews, not our favorite, probably skip it in the future. Passions on the Beach, very special, great food, music and waitstaff.

    Some of our old standby's - Mulligan's (reasonably priced, great view, right next to our timeshare at Divi), Chalet Suisse (old school), Ricardo's (great food and service, beachside), Gostoso (wonderful local food, the owner will come tableside to tell you about the menu), Wacky Wahoo (get the blackened wahoo!). Some new ones we plan on trying when we go back in March - Terrazza Italiana, Café 080, Elements, maybe Lazy Turtle.

    Passions on the beach looks nice, as well as this place where you eat in beds lol.

    Passions is nice... but we like Elements better for sunset dining. Screaming Eagle has 'real' seating too..... and great food and service.

    If you like fish, go to the Pelicans Nest and have the grilled grouper dinner. It comes with grilled veggies and rice or you can substitute. Best fish We have ever had. Located in the high rise area on the pier between Holiday Inn and Playa Linda. If you like Asian fusion(P F Changs), try J H Yees also in Palm Beach above the Hard Rock Café.
