Great Lunch Place

We ate lunch here and really enjoyed it. There is no view of the ocean but the local/rustic/original vibe of the bar is refreshing. The fish and chips were excellent (and very large so can be split) complemented by a bushwhacker and you can't go wrong. I'm not sure this would be a top choice for... read more

This is the best kitchen at the island ,Sunday is a great day to have brunch with your friends or family ,but try to get there early because it is very popular and gets crowded. Anything on the menu is delicious and don't forget to ask for a bushwoker.

Went for lunch on a week day. Waited a very long time to get our lunch. The omelet was $18! Really! My friends burger was undercooked so she sent it back. It returned cooked as she likes it but it was so salty she did not eat it all. Best things were the "liquid sunshine" cocktails and watching bananaquits and... More

Great food and drinks! Really nice decorations inside and the staff is top notch. If it's still around you'll have to try the risotto!

We happened upon this place for lunch. Very relaxing atmosphere. The staff was very friendly. The food and drinks were very good. I heard the brunches were also very good. Highly recommended, not to be missed.

This is a small little hotel/guest house that has a wonderful outdoor restaurant (very good) and swim-up bar which becomes the focal point for the stay. It's a wonderful place to unwind after exploring the island and the proprietor's are very accommodating. Will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Tortola.

I have been here a few times for brunch and drinks. On this occasion I went for lunch with a friend for a catch up. The staff were all so lovely and the drinks were absolutely brilliant! This is the dream chilled location to sip rum drinks all afternoon poolside. The food is great value and should not be underestimated.... More

We went for lunch while hanging at Josiah's Bay Beach - was recommended to us for Sunday brunch but we weren't looking for a scene :) AMAZING bartender, really fantastic drinks (virgin pina colada, painkiller and lebowski all winners) and very good food - and the bartender went out of her way on service, down to hooking me up with...

We have been for Sunday brunch here several times now. We have a bit of a routine, arrive for a swim in the pool, dry off in the sun and then into the bar area great food. The gut buster is just that so perhaps excessive but the omelettes and waffles are great

We enjoyed Tamarind. The restaurant and bar are set under a roof, open on three sides. This place is a haunt for locals and has a tropical feel about it. Everyone was friendly and the food was good.
