Don't miss The Sunday BBQ!

Elm has plentiful portions of great food prepared by Tony on a live charcoal grill on a beautiful beach. You can choose ribs, chicken, fish or a combination of any or all. Prices vary on how many meats your order, which is very fair. I think one meat was $20. Add a really cool band that plays some... read more

We had a lovely chilled evening with bbq ribs and mahi. Live music was fab on the Sunday evening. Lovely vibe and great recommendation. My only bug was this was the only time in 10 days that I got quite a few mosi bites (and on my face!)as we were there at dusk. Be armed with deet!

We arrived on Tortola late Sunday evening and someone sharing our cab to Cane Garden Bay suggested we grab dinner here, b/c they had a great bbq on Sunday evenings. So glad we listened! After a long day of travel, it was relaxing to sit on the beach deck, listen to great live music, enjoy a few cold Caribs, and... More

Great place to hang out, eat, listen to music and chill (lime). A nice beachfront setting where the folks are friendly. We tried Quitos down the beach, but this was more fun (and cheaper too).

We dined here twice during our stay. We had a drink at the bar and then headed over to our table. The bartender was also our waitress, and she was very pleasant, and the service was great both times. We had the coconut shrimp which was delicious and the veggie pizza which was also great.

We went on a night for which both the band and the barbecue was smokin'. The music was eclectic -- not the non-stop Bob Marley that most places pump out. (Although a few of those tunes made it on the playlist, too, which was fine with me.) The barbecue had choices of ribs, chicken, and/or fish, which were all very... More

Good local scene. Very lively bar and great live band. Friday and Sunday are very popular BBQ nIghts. Get a reservation. Ribs, chicken and mahi mahi with tasty sides. We've been 3 times and it's always good.

A bit loud and smoky but the BBQ is very good. Service is okay and the experience is a beach experience. Nothing special and easy for staying in Cane Garden Bay.

Wonderful Caribbean food, shepherd's pie, fresh fish, this place has it all! And a great view of Cane Garden Bay! The main chef, Tony, is a master of barbecue which is served twice a week with live music. His rotisserie can't be beat and he is very accommodating of food allergies -- true gem.
