We dined at Tukka's three times after Tido recommended Tukka's to us upon arrival at Compass Point/Eagle Ray's (same owners as Tukka's) for our dive vacation.
I spend the afternoon at Tukka for Sunday brunch while my dive buddy spent an enjoyable afternoon with a very good naturalist (Geddes). I extended my stay once I heard about the 5pm-ish feeding of the frigate birds, tarpons and eels.
Allwyn provided impeccable service for brunch, which had a lovely selection of many delicious foods (especially the veggie sushi and the bbq items). The unlimited champagne/prossecco for a very reasonable price made for excellent mimosas along the way.
Tido took over after brunch, and showed every kindness--provided me with binoculars to view the wrecks accompanied by Tukka's story about the various shipwrecks and a very informative coffee table book describing the 2008 hurricane in pictures and stories. Nothing like relaxing for a couple of hours overlooking the ocean from Tukka's great dining balcony.
The chef did indeed provide diners with entertainment near 5pm and began feeding the results of cleaning many fish to the frigate birds, tarpon and eels. He was very kind to let me feed the birds as well.
We returned mid-week for a nice dinner on Wednesday. I had the twin towers, which was spectacularly presented. I enjoyed the seafood elements of the kabobs the most.
My favorite meal was Fresh Fish Friday, which began with a beautiful display of freshly caught mahi-mahi, snapper and lionfish. We originally arrived just for drinks and apps on the balcony, but decided to stay for the pan-seared lionfish. Very delicious. Once again Tido greeted us very warmly, pointed out a small nurse shark joining in the foray of a bonus second feeding (the chef fillets the fish at a small station on the balcony).
Reviews are correct...dining here is a bit more expensive. I felt it was worth it--the food was very high quality and artfully presented, and the service was awesome. If you stay at Compass Point, Tukka's is happy to shuttle you to and from for a drive-free experience.
