Beach Posh! The mussels, bruschetta, and prosciutto & melon was spot on. If you want great atmosphere, ocean breeze, and don’t mind paying $$$ for food & beverage then this is the place to go!! Excellent customer service and friendly staff.

Thank Megan M

We had two lunches here on a recent trip and they were both amazing! We loved the views, the music, the food, the service, and the great cocktails (the Caribbean mule made with pineapple was delicious). Once we rented chairs for the day (which they give on a first come first served basis), and the other time we just put down our towels and enjoyed a swim in the sea after lunch. The place had great energy and the music volume was perfect. And our servers were super friendly. We love this place and can't wait to come back!

Very pleasantly surprised by the efficient and courteous staff. This place has a young vibe to it without being over the top like Nikki Beach. The food quality and presentation were much above our expectations. Would definitely pay a second visit.

Very busy and very good, service was ok but I was stunned when ordering a 250 euro bottle of wine ( puligny montrachet) the waitress asked if I wanted ice with that. When I asked why would I want ice to accompany the wine she replied that “ some” people mix it with wine. I have never been asked that question before and remain perplexed.

The food was good.

Dear @Q7972IZwilliamw thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We like to know your opinions so we can constantly improve our way to reach your best expectations. It is common that people use ice to refresh their glass of wine, especially on summer days but of course the type of wine matters...
We are very pleased to know that you enjoyed your time and our cuisine. That is all we want for you. Hope to have you back !

Sunny regards. Shellona

The former spot of Do Brazil on Shell Beach is a scenic casual but chic beach bar Shellona. We visit St Bart every year, and always stop here for lunch, drinks (or both), and this new venue didn't disappoint. Will definitely be back next year, and Shellona has more than just liquid assets. :-)
