Rude and noisy bartender

This place was average at best. The food was so so, but the worst part was the bartender with the really long beard that was so loud and offensive. What a distraction, we couldn't wait to finish our meals and leave.

Overpriced and disappointing food.. Laid back place to hang out for a drink or two, with a local feel. I will be back I'm sure, but not for any food. Shame as used to enjoy their Sunday brunch there.

Rarely when I can say that a meal has come back to 'haunt' me is it a good thing. However, after this heavenly plate which I all but licked clean was set before me, I have dreamt of little else in the past week... A culinary perfect 10 was achieved by the chef of this quaint little poolside clubhouse, tantalizing... More

What a great place - good atmosphere - buzzy - good friendly service - good food - great bloody mary's and you can take a dip in the pool and sit at the bar in the water. What more can you want? Good idea to book as busy at the weekends.

The GOOD: - Very tasty food - this is not haute cuisine, but the burger with brie was special - Cool colonial feel - it's hard to say why but with the jungle around you, the old style bar and pool, it kind of feels like you're in Saigon not Tortola - It's a Tortola institution - all the expats...

nice place, outdoor seating with bar next to pool. casual dining, decent food, good drinks. ate the chicken curry and the ahi tuna which would have been better if it had been cooled before served. curry good flavor, would have been better with some added vegetables. give it a try.

Had a wonderful time here. Met several expats who were all very friendly. Great spot to send a lazy afternoon or evening. We also had a very good Sunday morning breakfast.
