Unfortunately, the food wasn’t tasty. The overall value for the dinner was so disappointing. We opted for the tasting menu and wine pairing, but I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service was lacking and some dishes were just terrible. They served a bigger portion of steak for the last course topped with caviar (it was not a great combination). However, I could barely eat the steak, so I asked for a take-away box and they denied it to me and said they do not offer take home boxes—very wasteful. The views are nice and the heat lamps were nice to have. The dessert course was actually tasty, it was an ice cream cake that looked like a block of charcoal and they added a flake of gold and a tiny drop of raspberry on top for fun. We were hotel guests at Mystique, which is a 5-star resort. If I were Mystique, I would not want to be associated with Lure based on the poor execution of the food and lackluster service.

We did the food and wine tasting at Lure and everything was delicious. Really pleasantly surprised that there were three tastings available regular, pescatarian and vegetarian! The dishes were delicious and the service was great. Definitely on the pricier side, but the food, service and view won’t disappoint. PS the view is great, but does not face the sunset

We had the most incredible meal tonight at Lure! The food is outstanding and service is impeccable. Get the artichoke starter. We also got the lamb and ravioli for dinner and both were phenomenal. Definitely one of our best and most memorable meals ever, and the view is stunning!

My wife and I had a lovely dinner for our 15th wedding anniversary. Though it wasn’t at Lure, it was (if that makes sense). Lure was closed, but they served us Lure food at the Captain’s Lounge. We started off the meal with bread, butter (one with tomato and the other smoked), and salt (regular and smoked). The butter looked like the red and black volcanic rock you find throughout the island. They also served us an amus bouche of a shrimp fritter, a cheese molded around pumpkin seed and topped with a strawberry coulis, and a take on chicken and waffle. Next we moved to our starters. My wife got a fave bean dish and I got an artichoke dish. She didn’t quite enjoy hers, but mine was awesome. A little weird to have an artichoke gel, but it worked. The artichoke hearts were scrumptious. Next we moved to our mains. My wife got the risotto and I got the lamb. My lamb was a little overdone for how I liked it, but the skin was spectacular! The potato purée was good and the sweet potato was great. My wife enjoyed her risotto, but wished she’d gotten the scallop. She originally wanted lobster but they were out. We finished off the meal with the volcanic Mille-feuille and I got the white chocolate and raspberry cremeux. What a way to end a meal! The wait staff (Evelina and Antonis) were great. They were waiting for us m, knew our name, and that we were celebrating a special occasion. Though we were disappointed we didn’t get the view, we were delighted with our meal.
