Really didn't expect to find a fine dining experience on this little island but here it is! This chef is so talented, the service is exemplary and the location wonderful. Arriving by water taxi starts the evening off then being presented with a lovely cocktail just as the sun is setting- wow! We all really enjoyed the food, our waiter was very knowledgeable about each course and the local ingredients used. The ceviche for me was the star of the show. Well done to the whole team at Open Deck - a memorable night.

Do not expect a long menu with standard dishes and a long wine list with the usual Mondavi suspects. Come here if you want seafood, fresh, seasonal food, herbs from the garden, local produce, a good wine, and the creative presentation of dishes that tops everything we have had in the Caribbean. From the delightful rum cocktail and the starter, a red snapper soup with delicious dumplings, to the mango sorbet and the final desert, this was a delightful example of crossover cooking showcasing regional specialties. It was so good that we are coming back next week with guests.

Coming here with my friends by boat was a great start. The Chef does an amazing job using his European upbringing and training to make a 5 or 6 course meal amazing. From the scallops to the fish and the lobster were great. I'm sensitive to too much spice while I love having good flavor and he did perfectly as the entire meal was awesome. Not only best in the islands, it is up with the top restaurants in Manhattan or Miami. Not cheap but we'll worth it . We will be back for sure.

Open Deck is a fantastic addition to Bequia's list of restaurants, especially since l'Auberge has closed. It's fun to get to, and is truly a dining experience, not just a meal.

The hospitality shown to us was energetic, friendly, warm, inviting, you name it. Chef Patrick came to the table to describe each course, and ask if we had any restrictions and he happily accommodated us. He also offered our two children a more kid-friendly option, which was greatly appreciated. Both kids opted for the 5 course tasting menu anyway, and they were so glad they did!

We all thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening -- adventure of getting there, the friendliness of the staff, the food, the drinks, the location, the ambience, everything.

Things to note: All tables were served at the same time, so there was a bit of a wait for other parties to arrive; it was a set 5-course menu; welcome cocktail (or mocktail for kids or non-drinkers); our most expensive meal on the island (but worth it for a special night out)

Just re-opened after the surge. This place deserves to succeed (even if it is out of the way). The people now running it are lovely and the food is good fine dining. Oh by the way the view is pretty good too !
