We read the reviews for Sylvia's and made a reservation, expecting incredible island cooking. What we didn't expect was that Sylvia retired and her restaurant closed months ago, There had been no update in the TripAdvisor listings and Yelp is as usual old information. The lady who took the reservation did not indicate this fact, instead offering to stay and make us chicken, swordfish, conch and lobster dinners.
The kitchen is now part of JuJu's Sputnik Bar, run by a very nice lady Juliette doing the cooking. Our order for chicken, swordfish, conch and lobster dinners became four types of roti, which is an island-style burrito, not at all what we expected. The lobster and chicken roti were the best of the four. The conch roti was very chewy (not pounded out well) and the salt codfish (not the expected swordfish) was extremely salty; neither was edible. JuJu is a nice woman...food more like lunch burrito.. very disappointed..
We had broken the first rule of dining - when no one is dining, go elsewhere. Aqua Bistro had live music, was packed and had fresh snapper, wahoo and tuna.
