Dine in the terrace. Great views sitting in a 480 year old sugar mill. Food was in keeping with the surropundings.

This restaurant and hotel was severely damaged by Hurricane Irma in September, 2018. After many, many months and lots of hard work, The Sugar Mill reopened with a whole new feel! Open air walls, and the best Painkiller on the island!

Had lunch at ‘Tramonti’ - loved the re-built restaurant, but there was barely anything for a vegetarian to eat. I think there was a wrap with melted cheese but I wasn’t in the mood for something so stodgy and fatty. Ended up having the Greek...More

Our favorite new find on Tortola! The lovely setting on the waves was clearly a labor of love following the 2017 hurricanes. As beautiful as the setting was, the food outdid it! Favorites from around the table were the goat cheese and spinach ravioli (with...More
