Please note that these are archived reviews. If a restaurant has closed, we generally leave the listing, as the archived newsletter still has some information. If nothing else, it's recorded history. If a restaurant has changed hands with a new chef, new staff, and new decor, the review remains, but may be inaccurate. Even if the staff, chef, and decor remain the same, the review may still be inaccurate, as chefs get better (or worse), ditto for the staff, and colors fade quickly here in the Caribbean. Obviously, pricing changes over time as do policies (one to one for the exchange rate, among others). Even the reviewer changes over time, mostly in width. So take these with a grain of salt and a glass of wine.
