We had multiple breakfasts here as well as dinner. There is definitely something for everyone and at a reasonable price. Don't leave Bouganvillea looking for something better! Embrace the proximity!

We stayed at the Bougainvillea Resort and thus ate a few times at the Lanterns. Typically the service experience is poor, very slow and also sloppy, meaning that you have to remind several times and your orders still get forgotten. I don't expect speedy service in Caribbean but this is really weak performance. The food has never been a positive... More

We ate there a few times because we stayed at the hotel but no matter what we got we were always disappointed with overcooked and processed tasting food. But the atmosphere is beautiful by the ocean and the service friendly and attentive

The menu is limited and you certainly wouldn't want to visit more than once or twice if you were staying at the hotel, - problem is if you don't have a car 🚗 or take a taxi 🚕 you have no other choice as there are no other restaurants nearby. After saying that the limited food choices are prepared well... More

Came for breakfast on the first day because we were staying at he hotel. Our server took our order and never came back. She didn't bring the food, the chef at the buffet table asked us about it and went to get it. Once we had our food, the server again never asked once how things were. Once we were... More

The view is the ONLY thing this place has going for it! I had the "homemade" pizza which was definitely frozen. There are several good frozen pizzas that can be doctored up to taste pretty good. This was not one of them! My friend had the jerk chicken sandwich and there was maybe a tablespoon of chicken on it. On... More

Had a couple of meals in Lanterns By The Sea during our recent holiday. Good food, and in a really lovely setting right beside the beach. Reasonable prices.

We ate at Lanterns this evening. The menu is very sparse with not many choices. I had the vegetarian option for starter and main. Food was nice, plenty of it but not outstanding. The staff were brilliant especially the lady that served us. So friendly. Would not eat here if we were not staying at the resort. Not the type... More
