Great conch fritters!

The setting is beautiful -- right on the beach. The food is wonderful, the staff are very friendly. Great place and we would certainly go again -- and have been there before!

This beach is gorgeous, plenty of sand to walk - lots of Conch Shells everywhere. The bar is great, they have nice beach chairs you can carry down and bring back. The drinks were great and about the same price as everywhere else. A Must Stop while in Anegada!

Firstly, you've done the right thing by getting to the beach here, it is not to be missed. One of if not the best parts of the BVI. This bar / restaurant is great. It looks wonderful and is very in keeping with the beach in a traditional white painted beach bar decor, its beautiful. The staff are extremely friendly... More

Cow wreck bar on the beach is the best place in BVI to clear your mind. Bell, Anne,and Andrew offer therapy by way of great food and Andrew is the King of the Painkiller. Tried the Mad Cow which has a 3 drink limit, it melts your brain. Looking forward to New Year 2017 to celebrate at Cow Wreck ,... More

The beach is extraordinarily beautiful here. But the backdrop created by Belle and her family is the best. Sure, painkillers are great, but Belle's cowkiller can't be beat. Local kids swim to shore with fresh lobster, so you'll have the freshest of fresh ceviche for lunch. True, most people don't come to the islands for burgers, but the bacon cheeseburger... More

You can't pass up a visit to Cow Wreck while in Anegada! It is the most lively and festive bar on the island. People flock there, including the locals. The view of the Sea is breathtaking. Their food is delicious. Don't miss out on the conch ceviche or conch fritters (both go nicely with a cold Carib beer or a... More

Beautiful setting, but stuck there all day with no frills diner food and poor service. We were there on a slow day and had to beg for attention. Got soaked for $12 per person van ride to get there. The new Anegada Beach Club beats Cow Wreck on all counts: beach, snorkeling (lots of conch), best food on island, great... More

A fantastic beach bar. Ann will tell you her husband Andre makes the best Painkillers on the island. But we felt Ann actually did. The beach is feet away and amazing. The menu is pretty extensive compared to the rest of the island. I had the fish tacos and my fiancee had a burger. Both were fantastic. Hanging out here... More

We visited Anegada late December 2015 and drove to the gorgeous Cow Wreck Bay. The beach and the ocean view goes beyond a genuine Caribbean post card type photo. Now, imagine this type of view being enjoyed from a nice beach restaurant. Large tables, fairly comfortable chairs, bare feet and, on top of it, feeling a constant breeze. Can't be... More

The views from this place cannot be rivaled! We were impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. When we were on Anegada in October it was the low season and so this bar / restaurant was not open daily. There was a cash / honor system option which we did not use but saw was available. We often... More
