This is only a partial review because our much anticipated visit to the Lighthouse Ship didn't happen. We were staying nearby and viewed the menu favourably and booked for the Saturday night - so far so good.
Unfortunately when we arrived it all went downhill. We went upstairs at 8pm but there was no-one to tell us where to welcome us or where to go for a drinks. We did managed to speak briefly to a waitress as she rushed past, she thrust a cocktails menu in our hand and sent us up further stairs to the top deck and said someone would come and take an order from us shortly. Top deck is strung with lights, overlooking the sea/marina and should be a lovely place to relax before dinner.
After 35 minutes of waiting I went back downstairs to request drinks directly with a staff member and discovered that the usual full menu was not being served that night and there was a "teaser" menu - set choices of 4 courses. No-one had told us this when we made our booking! My husband liked the look of most of the things on the menu but I was less thrilled - but it was now 8.45pm so we decided to stick with it. Despite our prompting another 15 minutes without passed with no-one even talking to us, and never a chance of a drinks order being taken.
I don't expect everything to run to time in the Caribbean but in an hour I would have liked to have been welcomed aboard or our presence acknowledged as a minimum and a drink in hand would have made a wait more acceptable. At this point we gave up and decided to try our luck at the nearby Poolside Bar Restaurant - another part of Le Phare Bleu set up. Here we were welcomed back like old friends (we had lunch there a few days earlier), had our drinks 10 mins later and our order taken for dinner. OK it wasn't fine dining but we did get fed, had a good time and enjoyed the local band playing there.
