I went to St Barts for Sunday brunch , I heard from numerous friends that is is a great brunch because of the seafood and unlimited mimosas . I showed up the hostess was reading a book and acted like I was bothering her. The waitress I barely saw, I had to get out of my seat to replenish my minosa. Nobody told me that they changed their menu and now CHARGE 9.00 a glass of champange (it used to be included) I had 4 glasses of champane (thinking this was included in the steep price of 37.00 ) I approached managment thinking there surely is a mistake when I got my bill of 88.00 for 4 shrimp an ham and cheeze omelette and 4 champagnes. Management acted like I was TRYING to Rip them off when I questioned the bill. I end up talking to one of the owners who treated me the same. I end up paying the bill but decided I was not going to TIP ( I was humiliated) They give me the bill knowing I was extremely upset and added a 18 percent gratuity to my bill ! They reluctantly removed the gratuity after I firmly told them that a tip was not worthy! The upside is the chef is very nice and so are the sharks in the salt water aquarium in the bar area. So sad that this resturant has gone DOWN HILL! When it first opened it was awesome!
