“Atmosphere, food and company was wonderful.”
Reviewed 18 April 2013 via mobile

The diner sunset cruise was amazing. Ian still shocked at how totally fab the food was coming out of such a tiny kitchen. Bryan and Nancy were such a pleasure to be around and Barry the captain was very entertaining. Would HIGHLY recommend people to go. We will absolutely go back. Till next time.

“Incredible Food & Nice Sunset”
Reviewed 24 March 2013 via mobile

This is our second trip with Sunset Culinaire and it was even better this time. We had a small group of 8 guests which made the service quite personal. Chef Brian is incredible, everything was excellent. Nancy kept us with drink in hand so we could relax and enjoy the sunset. I recommend you try this dinner cruise, as the food is as good (likely better) as any restaurant in town, and you get the added benefit of being personally served as part of a small group, and enjoy the ocean and sunset.

“A Sunset would have been nice”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

So we didn't get to fully experience all that this seems to be able to offer. We know the owners do not control the weather, but we got the feeling that they would not cancel unless a hurricane was bearing down. It was drizzling and in the low 60s when we arrived at the dock and we would have thought this would be canceled because we are sitting out on deck exposed to the elements. We were served dinner on deck and the food was good but ended up cold as soon as the lid was taken off the plate. The wine was flowing to ensure we all had enough antifreeze to battle the lements. The owners and the captain were very gracious hosts as we discovered when it started to rain heavily after dinner and they brought us down into the boat which was also their home. They were very hospitable and served us dessert down there. Would have rather gone to a fine restaurant in town rather than suffer through the weather.

“Wonderful surprise birthday”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We had a birthday surprise for a close friend. Our first night together, twelve of us went on a wonderful sunset cruise with Captain Barry. Our hostess, Nancy, and chef, Brian, couldn't have been nicer. Food was delicious.
