If you are vegetarian and want local food, this is THE place for you

Just south of the only stoplight on the island is a very special vegetarian restaurant, Freedom Fighters Ital Shack. After climbing up six or so steps from the road, you enter the most quaint beach shack, with beads on the windows and Bob Marley regalia everywhere. The windows are open and a nice... read more

THANK YOU Ital for the best meal I had all week. I found you using my happy cow app, you were the only vegan shop on the island. If it wasn't for the $30 cab ride I would have eaten all my meals at your restaurant . Beautiful people, beautiful food. Thank you a million times for your nutritious food.

Very friendly people and great food. Its very difficult to find organic, non - proccessed and fresh food on this island. I am not vegan or vegetarian but i enjoyed the food very much. Buckweed grains and vegetable plus red cabbage and spicy arugula. Oh lemonade is delish. Super refreshing.

I found this place truly by accident one day before departing for our cruise and read reviews about this restaurant before we left the U.S. As soon as we docked in Philipsburg last week I found someone to drive us to this amazing little restaurant.
