Hung Paradise 3x............we love Hung paradise and none of the meals disappointed. Two of the times we were there, we ate light...having their delicious tomato soup (try it!) and splitting a Loempia. One of the visits we added a chicken and rice dish into the mix. The food is fresh and delicious and the service is wonderful. Grade A
French Steakhouse- Normally we’d have steak at the FSH, but the grouper caught our eye. We both had our blackened and it was delicious. Service and presentation were good. Grade B+
King Ribs- King Ribs is my husband’s favorite take away place on the island. We bought 2 bbq chicken dinners, and it came with cole slaw and mashed potatoes. 1 dinner was enough to split, so the other was saved for another night. Portions are huge. The chicken and ribs are slow cooked over a wood fire and are tender and the sauce (if you want sauce) is sweet and smoky. The mashed potatoes are red skinned with a bit of parsley and very good as well. Grade B+
Buccaneer- The Buc is another restaurant that we love as do the locals! It is the 2nd oldest restaurant on the island and Vasty, Josef’s son has done a bang up job of continuing his dad’s legacy with the restaurant’s food quality and service. We both had barracuda and it was excellent....mild and flaky and a large portion. Presentation was excellent and service was outstanding. The restaurant was busy, which was surprising for a night in early May. We love the Buccaneer and will be back. Grade A
Madame Janette-2x We enjoyed MJs on a Saturday evening and then again on a Wed. evening. Our Saturday dinner , Paul had the burgerloin and I had the almond crusted grouper. Outstanding dinner, presentation and service. Few nights later we went back and only had appetizers for dinner “bang bang shrimp and caesar salads”. Again, delicious and no complaints. There was entertainment in the garden each time and we enjoyed wine too with our dinners. Grade A
Aquarius- Aquarius was on Mother’s Day evening. We had been before to the seafood buffet and found it to be fabulous. Fabulous was not a word for this visit. We found the food only mediocre, and the lobster tails unpalatable. We did mention to the manager on duty during our meal that it seemed not quite up to par and was told, that it being Mother’s Day, and being so busy, apparently the evening buffet suffered as a result. He offered to comp our meal, but we would not accept the offer as we did eat other things....but again, the food was mediocre and not what we had come to expect from here. Service was slow and again, i am guessing it was because the staff was exhausted from a busy mother’s day schedule earlier. Our water glasses never refilled and the wine we ordered never came, but at least it was not on the bill.
The following day, the f&b manager contacted us and invited us for breakfast as an apology. We went a day or 2 later and it was good. We do not accept “freebies”, paid for our breakfasts and thanked the man.
Grade C for dinner B for breakfast
