Just average

The staff was very friendly, including the owner. The food was quite bland with small portions and overpriced.

Beware of taxi drivers that that operate out of Castaways. This is a huge cruise ship stop...at least one a day stop during our two week visit, taxi drivers prey on people not knowing the area. Castaways is right down the street from Jolly Harbor with what appears to be all kinds of security... but it is only for looks.... More

Sorry Guy's but we had the worst meal here during our 2 week holiday. The staff were friendly and its quite a nice place. We waited an hour, which we didn't mind but when it arrived it was truly bad. My husband had fish that was so tasteless he covered it in pepper. I had bbq pork which was mainly... More

We ate at Castaways once during our trip to Jolly Harbour. The food was ok but the service was inattentive at best. I'm a person who likes to slow down and enjoy a meal, but I think having to wait 10 minutes to order drinks - when the restaurant was mostly empty - is a bit much. Second time we... More

The food is great from hamburgers to fish dishes try the fish patties delicious . The atmosphere... More

Right on the beach serving all day - breakfast through to dinner. Happy hour is 4.30 - 6.30 when the cocktails are all 30% off. Food is good - not a massive choice but good and reasonably priced, staff are friendly. Great for on the beach drinks and food

During our last visit (October) to Jolly Harbour , we very often stopped here anytime we went to the beach. It's right next to the beach and has great atmosphere. They also do some themed evenings like a Caribbean Evening, where you can dress up in your floral best or just come-as-you-are in t-shirt and jeans. I highly recommend this... More

This restaurant is close to a lovely beach near Jolly Harbour. The wait staff are friendly but the drink service was very slow. We ate twice at this restaurant - once on Friday evening when there was a "Rum and Pork beach Lyme" The additional menu has multiple pork dishes to choose from and there is a fun Karaoke evening...

We were fortunate that the new chef had recently started. I have to admit I preferred the lunch menu to the dinner menu.
