The atmosphere is Elm's is as if you are one of the family. The food was the best on the beach for the value. The wait staff know you by name and remember you from years before. The bar is well managed as evidenced by the attitude of the staff. Live music and cook outs makes you feel like you... More

First of all, I will preface this review with the fact that we travel in the Caribbean a lot and I have been to Tortola 7-8 times so I know all about "island time" and I embrace it. I know that things are slower and more relaxed. But I find that most of the time service is still friendly. We... More

We always take in the Elm Beach Suites BBQ cookouts on Friday and Sunday when visiting in Cane Garden Bay and it never disappoints. They have finished the renovation and addition to the existing facility and instead of eating on picnic tables, this year we were all served in the open air restaurant. Much fun and the food was delicious.... More

Sleepy little place all week but comes alive twice a week (Fri and Sun I think) with a beach barbeque. Live band (The Elmtones!) very good and you can have a bit of absolutely everything on the barbie (fish, ribs, chicken) for $22. Loved it.

Two families, and our first trip to Tortola we were looking forward to fun in the sun, sailing and great food....Well Tortola has plenty of awesome beaches and rock solid sailing but is lacking in the great food category. We booked a learn to sail day with Rob Swain Sailing and were fortunate to meet Steve Davis who was assigned... More

A popular spot on Sunday night for their beach BBQ. VERY busy and VERY NOISY. Good for a younger crowd who wants to party and dance to the wee hours. Food was good and very reasonable. You choose the entree, which is grilled. $20.00 for the first one and only several dollars more if you want 2-3.

This restaurant/bar is right on the beach and on the nights they have their BBQ you can follow your nose to the right place. You can choose between ribs, chicken and fish or try all three. The food is excellent, the staff is friendly and the band is very good. You should make reservations. We ate there twice on our... More

This is a great beach bar on cane Garden Bay in Tortola. This one had the best bartender who made a killer Bushwacker. Everyone had fun there too with lots of bands playing at night.
