“Enjoy a relaxed dining experience on the Great South Bay at Babylon Village’s only waterfront restaurant.” This quote was enough to get us to visit Tres Palms on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. In this Covid era outdoor dining was definitely what we wanted. Even on this Saturday afternoon, our reservation turned out to be a good idea.
We parked in the gravel parking area our front. There is one dedicated, handicapped space close by. If the lot is full there are signs directing you to park a bit away in the pool complex parking lot. Located in a residential neighborhood, on street parking didn’t seem likely.
We entered the street level entrance to a small welcome area and the hostess area. There are several indoor dining rooms, where the tables were well-spaced. We had requested an outdoor spot, and were led outside. There is a variety of seating outside, some picnic style tables and benches along the dock, some high tables further down the dock, and two dining areas with gravel underfoot, that do not have a a view of the water – something very important to me! We were able to choose a high-top table right at the water, with a lovely view. Perfect! Even though it was a very warm day (90 degrees) we had an umbrella and a lovely breeze from the water to keep us quite comfortable.
We were happy to see that safety protocols seem to be in force. The staff all wore masks and guests were reminded to put their masks on if they got up from their table. One of my general complaints is that there is no apparent hand-sanitizer out in view.
Our server could not have been nicer. She was very friendly yet professional, making sure that everything was to our liking. Her suggestions were spot on! Our food was delicious. Perhaps the following is why – “We are committed to serving free range, natural and sustainable poultry and meat, free of an pesticides, hormones or antibiotics.” “We created our menu using ingredients found in our local farms and water whenever possible,” (website) . We could not have asked for anything better! Wonderful food along with wonderful service are what make an incredible dining experience.
Single occupancy restrooms are located in the hallway to the left of the main entrance. Unfortunately, they are not handicapped-accessible. They are small and do not have grab bars.
As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, http://www.trespalms.com">www.trespalms.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
