Delicious Caribbean food. A good size serving. The staff is happy to accomodate large groups and very friendly. A nice place to have a taste of the real Caribbean. Delicious!

Everything is great about this place. The food, the staff, the Drinks and the location. Book your reservation, do not miss out on this wonderful place. I can not wait to return again.

When reading all the reviews, and the big sign in the lobby I could barely wait to get reservations. The food was good, but I was expecting so much more seafood.

Great atmosphere; right on the beach. Food delicious & service good. Only negative point is that for most of the dishes, there is an extra charge. For example, for shrimp curry it was $20. This limited all inclusive choices.

We had a lovely dinner at Lydias. They ran out of the type of fish we wanted but substituted another fish cooked the same way and it was delicious!

Lydia,s is not just a romantic setting it has incredible food, and it is a credit to Jolly Beach. We enjoyed the snapper so much we re-booked two night later, and I do not generally like fish.

Food was great. I had the whole plate snapper which was delicious. I am a desert person and was disappointed with what they offered for a chocolate moose. Service was quick and polite.

The food was good at this restaurant.You have to make reservations for it. It would be nice if they switched up the menu though so that we would have had a different choice the second time.

Hi. I think it is best you ask the restaurant direct although I would assume they are open as it is the beginning of their main season (Hurricane season finished). Wonderful food with tables on the beach candlelit and food... More

I'm sure they can accomodate you but you need to contact them direct about your specific date. They are very helpful.
