Superb food

True Caribbean food we had a mixture of lobster chicken and fish and all enjoyed it very much. You wouldn't leave hungry and the service was always with a bit smile and nothing too much trouble

Back on Barbuda for the third time in three years and back at Uncle Roddy's! It would be inconceivable to visit Barbuda without visiting Uncle Roddy. Four of us popped in for dinner twice, first time lobster and fish, second time chicken and fish. As always the food is perfect. However good as the food is Roddy himself is the... More

Roddy is a charming host and serves everything with a smile and a warm welcome. His beer is ice cold and the setting is fabulous next to Barbuda cottages. I had lobster grilled with plantain and salad and garlic bread. it's really worth the trip out of the village or from your hotel/guest house to this Barbuda landmark.

We enjoyed our second trip to Barbuda even more than the first 3 years ago. Our lobster dinners at Uncle Roddy's were just as wonderful as the last time..and of course the drinks are tasty too. Sad to learn of the demise of the lime tree from last time's fresh picks for my G&T's! Roddy is an excellent host and... More

Enjoyed chatting with Uncle Roddy, he is a very accommodating host. Excellent red snapper. Lobster is plentiful. He made us a very nice wedding lunch which was enjoyed by all.

Uncle Roddy's is situated at the south coast of Barbuda, at the Coral Bay Group, just next to Barbuda Cottages. We had lunch and dinner here 3 times during our stay at the Cottages, one of them was our wedding meal. We couldn't have asked for more tasty food: both the lobster and the fish are sooooo delicious! Uncle Roddy... More

Two of my favorite things in one place fresh lobster grilled on a gorgeous deserted beach with a cold Wadadli Beer-what more can I ask out of life. Uncle Roddy was a great host and I went there three times!

We stayed at the Barbuda Cottages right next door and had the opportunity to dine with Uncle Roddy and Richie (his beloved pooch) a few times over our stay. Arrangements were made ahead of our stay to have dinner the night we arrived and as promised, Uncle Roddy had full Lobster meals waiting for us! During our stay we also... More
