Busy lunch venue in central location

A cool, breezy veranda in a colonial style building overlooking the busy town and port of Basseterre. Good food and value for money but it was only open for lunches in late April when we visited. Worth a visit.

Great relaxed bar in centre of town - we just had drinks and watched the world go by. Clean, great staff and the food we witnessed coming out looked very wholesome.

Ballahoo was recommended as the place to go so I went. Again, I though the food was just average - not the gastronomical delight had antiicpated

Ballahoo, Manager at Ballahoo Restaurant, responded to this review

Hi Janet, thanks for tour review. Don't know what your question was when you asked for recommandation, but Ballahoo is not what you can call a gastronomic restaurant. We do simple, affordable, good food (breakfast, salads, sandwiches, soups, steaks, and fish), for simple people. More

First of all the location is excellent, the dining is overlooking "The Circus". The dining room is well decorated with antiques and fine wood furniture. The service is friendly and the food is good. The restaurant is the cleanest I have seen on St Kitts. There is parking down by where the ships dock. Please note the restaurant closes at... More

On a recent trip to St. Kitts my husband and I found ourselves at Ballahoo Restaurant for lunch. We both had the roti, which was spiced perfectly - full of flavour, but not too hot and spicy, and the service was attentive and friendly. The beer was cold, and it was fun to enjoy a nice meal while watching all... More

Got off our cruise ship, went on a Rain Forest trek then headed to town to get lunch and found a great spot, Ballahoo Restaurant. I liked this location as it was right in the city square on the second floor, so you could look out and and see the town square and its bustling life. The restaurant had a... More

It was a great place run by locals. It was sold and atmosphere not the same. Food was good. A little overpriced

We've been going to St. Kitts for the last 4 years, but it was our first time eating there. Great atmosphere and the food was outstanding. Trend oust enjoyed the French Onion soup. But truly, the most spectacular part of the Ballahoo experience is the view down below. Enough entertainment for anyone! Thanks for a great dining experience!

On way back to airport from Nevis and needed a lunch spot. Ideal, as a table on the balcony was an ideal spot to spend a little time watching the goings on in the circus below. Also convenient for taxis to airport. Food was acceptable and quite large portions. Only draw back was lugging heavy suitcases up the stairs but... More
