Highlight of our visit to have met owner John and drank rum and beers overlooking the looping road below. We waved at the locals as they passed by and spent too long talking about a love for this island. The food was homemade and wonderful, particularly the Goats Water. Everybody turned up for soup and takeaway food. Excellent time.

My husband and I arrived on Montserrat yesterday, and the people we are staying with suggested dinner from this place our first night because our flight came in later. John immediately greeted us with a big smile and a enthusiastic welcome. We got one chicken entrée and one fish entrée. Both came with a side of rice, potato salad, and... More

First the food is amazing! I always go there when I am in Montserrat. John is great!, friendly, amazing customer service. He makes you feel so at home like you are visiting a relative for dinner. Roti amazing, Coconut cake and tart yummy! I place my orders early. The views and breezes coming from on top the hills so sweet!.... More

We only stopped here for a quick drink but ended up staying for a while sitting on the veranda admiring the view of the mountains. There's a really friendly and relaxed feel here.

Had the place recommended by our day tour guide and have to say the food was amazing. John the owner was an amazing host. When we asked about the best goat water The People's Place was the place to go and it was great.

You want friendly, local food?! Go see John at Peoples Place. A bonus is that I think it was the most reasonable price on the island also! This is where we tried Roti and Goat Water. 2 must haves if you want to try local food.

The People's Place has the best food on the island hands down!!! Once we found this gem, we ate dinner here almost every night and once we returned to the states we still craved the food from this place! John, the chef, is the most down to earth funny guy you will ever meet! He is a blast and really... More

I had my first taste of Montserrat's signature dish known as "Goat Water" when I was a teenage visitor back in the late 1960s. Mrs. Morgan's restaurant was always on our must-do list for years, but when she was no longer cooking this derivative of Irish Stew, I was not able to find her equal. Thankfully, that's no longer the... More
