We had such an amazing dinner at Sapadilla. Servic was impeccable and you really felt special with the awesome treatment. The food was delicious! And they sent a complimentary car to pick us up at our hotel. Definite must !!

Wonderful service, atmosphere and food. Plus being picked up at the hotel was a nice touch. If you’re staying at BahaMar where the food prices are high and the food is not good, definitely go to this restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a woman I met at the Baha Mar SLS hotel when we arrived. She raved about it so we made a reservation for our group of 6. The restaurant picked us up on time at our hotel. The outside of the restaurant is lovely and the inside is beautiful. The service was wonderful and so was the food! We all enjoyed our meals. The prices were high, but that was to be expected. They returned us to our hotel. I went on to recommend this restaurant to another couple we met!! Hope they were as satisfied as we were! Recommendation: If you make your reservation on line call the restaurant when you arrive to schedule your pick up. It may not be automatic.

Its so hard to put into words the experience we had this Saturday night. It was my wife’s birthday on the Friday and when our cruise ship docked in the Bahamas on Saturday that we would do something really special.

Judging by the reviews on TripAdvisor this seemed to create the unique experience that we were searching for. Ultimately it was really unique but unfortunately not all for the right reasons!

Firstly the amazing! I can see why this restaurant could be one of the best experiences that you could have! You pull up into a stunning long drive way with the most beautifully landscaped surroundings. The building itself is breathtaking. Colonial mixed with Caribbean. The piano player playing in the background and you have champagne to welcome you. Everyone wished my wife a happy birthday and we truly believed we were in for treat.

We were taken out to the outdoor patio area, which lacked the atmosphere of the main dining halll and you couldn’t enjoy the music. Perhaps this should have given my first warning sign nonetheless we truly wanted this to be special. It is very beautiful outside but you definitely miss the atmosphere and elegance of the dining hall.

The waiter was warm friendly and welcoming, the bread was out of this world. The appetizers which consisted of onion soup (me) and my wife had the conch salad. Prepared in front of us with 6 different ingredients lime, orange and lemon juice. It was like restaurant theatre at its best and it tasted amazing.

Unfortunately this is where the excellence ended and the restaurant disaster began. The time between seeing waiters stretched out each time, we had sparkling water which was taken away after each time our glasses were filled. We didn’t see a waiter for 10/15 minutes from there last appearance. The entrees arrived around 30 minutes later. My wife’s tuna was exceptional and my shrimp pasta was inediable.

When we eventually caught the waiters attention he was agreeable to take the food back we went a further 20 minutes without seeing anyone. Yet within this time the manager came out to wait on another table, not once did anyone come over to us.

Eventually the waiter took away our food and asked if we wanted desert to which we declined, he then started talking about having around 100 people more than normal and admitted that the restaurant couldn’t really cope. He offered to take us back to the cruise ship by car which was a lovely gesture. He went away to get his car keys and then the chef came out to ask us what was wrong with the food. He said he would have offered us dessert but heard we were in a rush (we were unaware we were in a rush!). He said he would bring us some apple pie (which we ended up taking away as the guy was waiting to take us, it was all so bizarre).

We were then taken through the restaurant and as we turned a corner the waiters were lighting a candle for someone’s birthday. My wife assumed it was for her yet it was for someone else. They had sadly completely missed her birthday.

In summary glimmers of exceptional, mixed in with totally unacceptable. Expeiences I wouldn’t have accepted in average restaurants let alone some of the highest rated in Bahamas.

This is a very special, fine dining restuarant. From the initial greeting at the gate, the valet parking staff, the beautiful gardens, the hostess, waiters and assistants to the luxuriously set tables, amazing culinary offerings and delightful live background music, you can expect nothing short of first class service. We were lucky to have selected Sapodilla to celebrate a very special birthday and were thrilled with our experience. Truly a great evening!
