“Don't get the reviews”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

I went with a bunch of mom friends of mine and don't get the reviews. The ambience was weird and the upstairs bar isn't any better. Good choices all over the board with BBQ, Mexican and Indian. Not worth it. Go to La Hacienda, Palms or Gabriella's first.

“Best Dinner on South Padre”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Loved our dinner at the Chef's House! Wonderful food at reasonable prices. Everything from the salsa to appetizers to our main courses was delicious! The service was excellent and the beachfront view was lovely. We only wish we'd found it earlier on our trip--definitely our family favorite. This should be on EVERY top pick list for SPI! Don't miss it!

“"Great Place For Family Gatherings"”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

I called this restaurant ahead of time because we were celebrating our mother's 90th birthday. We wanted a nice breakfast place for about 45 people. They confirmed that they could accommodate us. Two days before the event the chef called me and asked if it was ok if he would prepare a buffet breakfast for our group and of course we said yes! He emailed me the menu of what he would include and told me he was open for suggestions. We reviewed the menu and changed one dish and he of course was willing to do what we wanted. We were very pleased with the food the service and how we were received. We all recommend this restaurant and we will be back to see Chef Sylvain when we visit the island. Thank you chef and staff for a great job.

“YOU MUST GO HERE!!!!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

It was the restaurant highlight for us while in South Padre. WE went there three times, our kids celebrated their anniversary there and we got to know the chef and owners who are really special people!
