We dined here during our week stay at the hotel. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You will never regret dining here on any occasion, at any time of day. The service is amazing, but the food is even better!!

This restaurant is hands down the best on Tortola. There is no place else you need to visit for an amazing meal and a relaxed setting. The service is helpful and attentive and the food is simply outstanding. The dining room is open air and has WiFi as well. The portions are on the smaller side (compared to American standards)...

We went here on our last night in Tortola. Make reservations, it gets busy and they have specific seating times. The staff here was WAY more friendly and welcoming than any other place we went on Tortola. The food was incredible. I had scallops with risotto and my husband had duck. He said the duck was cooked more than he... More

We loved everything. The Sugar Mill is one of the best experiences we had on the island. The food was perfect and the atmosphere was eclectic. As far as it being noisy in other reviews, the walls are thick stone and do not absorb sound. It was still not bad at all and not overcrowded. We will return for sure.

We came for dinner one night with 2 other couples. We were seated at a cozy table overlooking the water. I believe the restaurant is actually located inside what was the old sugar mill and the walls are made of ballast stone from old cargo ships. We visited in November and the restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The service... More

The old brick building gives the restaurant a very romantic and unique ambiance . There is a good selection of food for about any taste. I was pleasantly surprised at the great wine selection. Food was Caribbean traditional and American and very tasty. Service was extremely slow but the whole feel of the place made up for it, sipping on... More

This used to be our favourite restaurant on Tortola but unfortunately it's standards has fallen. We went on Valentine's night and were very disappointed. The restaurant had too many tables and was very noisy and crammed. The service was very show and the food was just okay and the portions were very small. Sadly it's no longer the romantic place...

You came on Valentines night, one of the busiest nights of the restaurant year, and it was very busy. And you were surprised ? And you say the crowd was noisy. Indeed we remember hearing lots of them talking and laughing. There was a small band playing romantic songs as well. And people were dancing. Those are the sounds of... More
