Fodor's Expert Review Carpe Diem

$$$ San Nicolas Contemporary

One of the most whimsically decorated restaurants on the island occupies an excellent location overlooking the marina and serves an eclectic selection of dishes. South American and Mediterranean flavors lace an extensive lineup of seafood, meat, fish, and pasta. Filet mignon with a red-wine reduction melts in your mouth, and the lobster risotto and almond-crusted grouper are memorable. With wonderful views of the marina, this is also a great place for a quick cocktail or gelato. The interior is a kaleidoscope of antiques and avant-garde art, fantastical portraits painted on the backs of chairs, and vintage sofas overlooking the sea. Unfortunately the service and quality can be spotty.
