Good food on the beach, pricey though

Castaways has quite a few high points. Free chairs on the beach if you eat there, great curry goat and jerk chicken, actually all the food we have eaten there has been great. It is a bit pricey though. Over $100 for lunch for two adults and two kids (who ate off the kids menu).

Went for sunset drinks as was supposedly was "Happy Hour". In This place that means 30% off individual drinks! We decided to eat and should have noted that no one else was in the restaurant. Their menu consists of a chalk board of written items. We ordered various meals chicken, fish etc and all bad especially the Blackened Fish which... More

This is what a beach bar/restaurant should be! Great food. Great service, great drinks and great view. What more could you ask for?

Enjoyed a couple of evenings here. The cocktails were great and cheap during happy hour. Ate there twice, first time food was lovely, second time not so good. The menu was on a blackboard and taken to each table so you can wait a while to get to choose your meal.

Wandered in for a wadadli, did not sample food. Staff friendly and courteous, seemed to want to look after their customers, ensuring they got safely out of the restaurant (there is a little bridge and a step up on to the walkway that you could miss when dark). Drinks were a little on the pricier side but cheap enough. Free... More

A great place to base yourself for a day on the beach. Loungers and parasol are priced at $26 XED per day which is about £6. Good food for lunch with mains varying between £6-£12. The cookies and cream desert would rival any Italian gelato seller. Marvellous Marvin is a friendly chap and the entire team serve with a smile

Overpriced food that doesn't taste of anything. We went for the curry, which comprised of a few (literally four / five) chunks of tough meet floundering in an oily yellow sauce. Avoid. Service is equally off the mark... A shame, as it's in a great location.

Styled as a typical Caribbean beach bar, this is the main hangout for visitors to Jolly beach. I liked the wide range of dishes - I recommend the Orange molasses BBQ ribs which were delicious, as was the cedar plank salmon. Also a good kid's menu and the bonus of a play area with swing and slides (if the paradise... More

Cool spot on one of the nicest beaches in the world. Great food, great smiles and a chill atmosphere. Calm waters allow a family friendly hang out and the beach volleyball net out front gives it another appeal. Well done!
