These guys are trying really hard and succeeding. Great location. Great food. Try the in-water bar tables and the upstairs group table in the cabana.

A short ferry ride to this island is WELL worth the trip. We ate and drank under the palm fronds, swam in the crystal clear water, and hiked around the island. Plenty of amazing vantage points for pictures and spots to snorkel.

Second trip to Pinel Island and to Yellow Beach Bar. Love it! Food is not served until 12 noon so we had a bit of a wait...ordered calamari, cod fritters and french fries. All was tasty. Great atmosphere and service and staff was good. Will return...again.

You cannot beat the experience here the beach is amazing. The cocktail tables in the water are awesome! The food is good and the drinks are delicious! Service is good both at the tables and beach. The hike up the beach to the other side of the island is beautiful! Oliver is excellent! Try the chicken spring rolls.

The food is awesome. My wife and I had a tuna steak and an additional portion of fish. Everything was delicious and in good quantity - one of these meals you keep remembering for a long time. The environment is very cool - the true 'feet in the sand' restaurant, and with a well elaborated menu. Service is among the... More

We had somewhat low expectations of the food we thought we'd receive on Pinel Island, but oh my goodness, were we pleasantly surprised at Yellow Beach. The food was amazing! Tuna tataki, fresh lobster, grilled grouper, beef carpaccio, and a burger were all excellent! Oliver and Sebastian provided some of the best service we've had at any Caribbean destination thus...

Spent four or five hours on the Island, on the beach. The grass huts and restaurant location are excellent. Service and food very good. Good value. Typical beach, outdoor restaurant and bar but staff very much above average. Would go back.

When the wind is strong on Orient Bay Beach, there is very little wind here with calm water great for swimming at this location on Pinel Island. There was no seaweed. The beach attendant was very courteous. I got a single beach chair and umbrella for $15. Though just one girl and myself were wearing a thong swimsuit, we got... More

The restaurant is the main food provider on the island, and as such it has a monopoly of the business. With a monopoly you would expect over-confidence bordering on arrogance. And you can find that attitude aplenty. After ordered our takeout, we stood around for more than half an hour for the food, and were told "we are very busy... More
