Celebrate your first night with fine dining and sensational views at the stilted Cliff at Cap restaurant. Delight in contemporary French Caribbean cuisine from executive chef Craig Jones, creating such offerings as conch ceviche and ahi tuna with a mango balsamic jus; Kurobuta pork belly with razor clams and squid served with coconut foam; or oyster mushroom linguini, caramelized plantains and soya beans, paired with the perfect varietals from a new world selection for a magnificent start to your island escape.
