A LITTLE PRICEY BUT ALWAYS A GOOD MEAL. They had excellent seafood and an assortment of different types of foods if going with a group of people. In a safe location, excellent wait staff and great portion size

We would go to the beach for the day and would go to the Castaways for lunch. The food was very good and so was the service. Dave is very personable. Reasonably priced.

Castaways is the beach restaurant at Jolly Harbor. The Bar is great and the staff is always friendly. There are a number of good things on the menu leading off with the double burger with pineapple and assorted toppings.

Prime beach setting but shame about the mediocre food and service even though the bar and restaurant were quite empty ! We'd ordered Chinese ribs and had started eating them when the waitress told us they were the wrong ones but were we happy to eat them?! They weren't very nice and we all left most of our meals. When... More

Good location and a great place to watch the sunset. Food is reasonably if you are into pub type food but it is let down by poor service. It can also be very crowded during the day with hordes when cruise ships are in.

I ordered barbecue chicken and i don't know what it was, but I couldn't eat it.the place really needs to be cleaned up.I prefer the Nest beach and Catherine's Cafe in English Harbour. Wish there was more quality shopping outside Heritage... More

Service was slow and one in our party didn't get her dinner at all. Apology was given along with a promise to recognize fault on the bill but that wasn't done. With 4 children under the age of 7 waiting and waiting, they get very restless. Open air restaurant with great views but poor service. Took a very long time... More
