Good food in nice location

Great location – overlooking the marina. Large open-air restaurant and bar – perfect to catch the trade wind breeze. Extensive menu with a good mix of Caribbean and more traditional dishes. They have a special burger menu – and there are a lot of burgers! We ate here a couple of times when we... read more

This bar and restaurant is right on the beach at jolly harbour. The food is very good and reasonably priced. We never had a bad meal there. Enjoy a cocktail as you watch the sun set then while away your evening watching one of the local bands. They will even set up the TVs for you if you want to... More

We had breakfast, lunch, and the BBQ special dinner here. Everyone is lovely, service is somewhat slow - but that is consistent with all the other restaurants on this island. The food is delicious, as is the rum punch. I would just say that the BBQ Friday night special is a bit skimpy - we found we wanted another meal... More

We spent two full days at Jolly Harbour beach and Castaways was our go-to place to eat, drink and get out of the sun. The food was great, the vibe was stellar, the servers were friendly and the prices were fair. We loved it here and it definitely helped make our time at the beach very memorable.
