Best night in the BVI

The food here is great, you can't beat fresh lobster really. The staff are friendly and a great laugh and the restaurant becomes a bar and disco after the last sitting and turns into the island's party venue. Great food served by friendly staff with a great atmosphere. I hope I will be back soon!

The meal for 6 of us was simple but well done. Service was an interesting and memorable experience. We arrived without a reservation which through the staff for a loop even though the place was nearly deserted. The elderly gentlemen that helped us to our seats was anything but positive to begin with but we quickly learned he had a... More

Restaurant was recommended as friendly Sam now wokrs there again as a cook. Showed up at the bar shortly after 4 pm and a seeming uninterested Maitre d' finally handed me a menu. Within 1 Minute he showed up with a pen and a paper napkin und urged me to place the order. As I was busy translating the menu... More

The lobster was freshly caught and beautifully cooked on the grill. The accompanying garlic butter was lovely. Our friends had fish a,d they loved it too. Ice cold beers and friendly atmosphere.

This was our first Caribbean Lobster (no large claws!) and it was great. Barbecued and served with baked potato (or rice with red beans) and assorted veggies. Service was OK, but slow and a couple of problems with late potatoes, but all OK in the end. Great dance music from the DJ and the Limbo on the sand dance floor... More

My family and I took an instant liking to the owner, Sam, when we arrived for a few drinks. He was kind and accommodating. He encouraged us to return later in the evening to enjoy their DJ and some limbo. We had a blast trying to beat Sam (he is very talented at limboing) and we shared many laughs. It... More

Wow, the only bad experience ever in the BVIs. Family of 8 adults sailed to Anegada where we had been before. Made the choice not to eat there to try the Anegada Reef Hotel, which was excellent. Suppose the owner Sam took that as an insult. Or maybe it was the fact that he was drunk out of his mind.... More

This was my second visit to Anegada. For dinner we ate at Potters by the sea, and the lobster was amazing! Prices were quite reasonable, and the setting was wonderful, with great views over the water. After dinner, the bar area turns into somewhat of a party with a DJ, and is truly a good time! Potters has a wonderful... More

Our experience with Potters By The Sea started at 11am when we pulled up at our mooring. Sam the cook came out to our boat and serenaded us. How could we resist just a good sales job. We weren't disappointed. We were seated right next to the pristine white beach and could see Sam cooking the lobster over a fire.... More

If you want to pick your own live lobster, watch it be prepared and have a lovely meal in what you imagine a small island beach bar Potter's is the place. You'll eat family style, your choice of salad dressings will be out of the same bottles you can buy at home but the lobster and the rest of the... More
