We started with cocktails on the patio to get us warmed up for a great evening. The specialty island drinks were great and diverse. Not too sweet. We moved into the dining room when we were asked whether we were ready. No demands here. Just accommodation. The staff were all patient, informative and displayed the remarkable Tortola friendliness and helpfulness... More

The Sugar Mill is a 400 year old site that has been transformed into a modern oasis. The restaurant is situated on a hillside over the beach, and is open to the sounds of the waves as well as the lush vegetation of the property. It is the essential colonial setting for a romantic, upscale dining experience. The menu is... More

A wonderful and romantic restaurant. Highlights include the lobster beast, chicken curry, quiche Lorraine, beef satay and banana Flambée. Views across the Caribbean sea toward Jost van Dyke.

We stayed at the Sugar Mill, an all inclusive resort, so were fortunate to have dinner in the restaurant each evening. There is an interesting and varied menu and the head chef, Bernard, is creative with spices and presentation. We had the fish of the day, scallops, shrimp, steaks amd pork. The soups and desserts just made it all perfect!

I love the Sugar Mill Restaurant, it has always been one of my favorites on Tortola. It had been over 12 years since my last visit, so I wasn't sure if the quality of the food and level of service would be the same. Much to my delight, the food was so good and the service was wonderful. Professional, yet... More

Not only is the setting of this restaurant absolutely stunning (seriously!), but the food, service, and overall experience was really wonderful. As a large group, every one of us really enjoyed our meals. The lobster thermidor is a must, as well as any one of their fresh pasta dishes. Don't miss the key lime pie and bread pudding for dessert.... More

My wife and I were there recently celebrating our anniversary. Several items on the menu were not available, the wine list was decent for the island but again way overpriced. Hopefully they will take this review seriously and rework the menu/pricing.

I see Trip Advisor are now sensibly dividing restaurants into "fine dining" and "cheap eats" so that people like yourself do not stray into places they are not used to and can't really afford. A good idea as it saves embarrassment all round. This may surprise and disappoint you but we won't actually be changing anything based on your "review".... More

My wife and I just celebrated our anniversary by eating at the Sugar Mill Restaurant. Not only did the food exceed our already high expectations due to reading reviews, but the service was fantastic. The entire staff were extremely friendly and made the meal one that we are sure to remember. Also, when Regina tells you to get the Cay... More

We ate dinner and lunch at the Sugar Mill. We dined in the restaurant for dinner and it was superb. Excellent food and awesome service from happy fun loving staff. Also very good reasonably priced wine! Lunch out in the cafe on the water was also most excellent although a totally different atmosphere.
