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!

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.
