Lobster and a beautiful beach!

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

The lobster was cooked right on the Barbie near us and it was great. He makes a wonderful rum punch I will be back again next year

There are plenty of reviews of Uncle Roddy’s out there – and they are well deserved. He serves well-made Caribbean fare (grilled lobster, chicken or fish) with grilled bananas, rice with coconut milk and a fresh salad. Roddy is open, honest and friendly. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to meet his dog Richie.

Plus, Uncle Ruddy is such a wonderful host. Again we felt we were eating with a friend in a lovely spot. Relaxing and tasty.

We returned from a fortnight in Barbuda last week. We were there exactly the same time last year. This year a local ban on catching, selling or buying lobsters was in place (not a problem for us as all other islands we visit have a closed season and there is plenty of other good food available). This had caused problems... More

Uncle Roddy's is a simple homestyle restaurant on the beach at Spanish Well Point in Barbuda which serves the best lobster we've ever had. It's worth the adventure to get there. If like us you're arriving by boat you pull the dinghy up on the sand at the security gate to the airstrip & Roddy will come and get you... More

A great way to spend a relaxing day in Barbuda, The pink sand beach with Roddy cooking grilled Lobster. The food was fantastic, the beer was cold and the chairs in the surf were totally relaxing. A must to experience !!!!!

First Barbuda is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. And on the unspoiled island sits a little place called Uncle Rodey's. it is located right on a beautiful beach. The food is fabulous! Grilled lobster, grilled BBQ chicken are the main dishes served with rice, salad and grilled bananas. Of course there is a small bar... More

This was our 2nd time visiting Barbuda for the day. After swimming on the gorgeous beach of Princess Diana we decided not to wait for our ride not realizing we were 2 miles away from Uncle Roddys where we knew our lobsters and cold beers were waiting at this quaint little house in the middle of no where. Great food,,... More
