Great meal--great service

I'm puzzled by some of the previous reviews. Mermaids is one of the few places we visited twice during a 10-day stint on Virgin Gorda. It's a mid-price-range dinner place with the best burger on the island. Good salads and daily specials. They accommodated swapping side dishes, and the service was... read more

Loved everything about this place! My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant so much that we went back several times. The staff was friendly, the fish was fresh, and the scenery was unbelievable! We definitely would recommend to everyone! Not fancy but you can't beat the view!

The Mermaid was just so disappointing this time around. You can't beat the location and the ambiance, there was even a great breeze to cool things off! I had called at lunchtime to confirm that they had lobster and was told they had just gotten some in that morning, so I made a reservation for eight. We waited for more... More

We stopped by and ordered for take out. Came back 1/2 later and picked up a TON of food- chicken, ribs, and sides. Just told them to give us a same of everything, as we were feeding 10 people. They were so friendly and it was great to have that much food on short notice. My in-laws went there a... More

If your already at the Marina, Ok its a place for a drink and a snack if your not there already its not... More

Steamed local snapper, so tender; cooked veggies (peas, okra, carrots, and greens) done with aromatics; firm potato salad to take the heat off if you're liberal with the pepper sauce. Friendly service. Food is as delicious as the killer view

This restaurant is literally out on the water (hence the name "Dockside"). It is more a casual bar/grill type of place, rather than a restaurant. The menu is very small (three choices of main courses, a few more choices of appetizers/salads. My wife and I ordered two drinks, an a main course each. Her drink was very good, mine tasted... More

The only good thing about here is the amazing location and view. The food is limited and everything had the same jerk taste.

Not much is open in Spanish Town on a Sunday afternoon. But we found a real gem in Mermaid's. We had a Mahi wrap and it was very good. The view is like a postcard!
