Stayed at the Marriottt where we were pointed in the direction of the Ballahoo. A short cab ride delivered us to this restaurant and we were not disappointed! The conch chowder was exquisite as was the view over the old part of the city. Charming visit with wonderful food and genuine hospitality!

You can choose your own seating. I walked in and was told by the bartender to sit wherever I liked. I chose a table tucked in the back with a partial view of the roundabout, known to Kittitians as the Circus. There is free Wi-fi at this restaurant! However, I would not have known this if I hadn't have read... More

This is a hidden gem. It is an open air restaurant on the second floor of a building in the center of Basseterre. I had a Chicken Roti and it was excellent. It was also the best service we experienced on the entire island. If you go shopping at Port Zante, you can easily walk there, which is what we... More

My sister and I had a brilliant lunch here. Really good typical St Kitts food - recommended by one of our friends who is from Nevis. Smiling unobtrusive service, good value and just an amazing view over the Circus town square, really genuine feel.

Nothing to remember. The only good thing was its proximity to the shopping. That made the Mrs. Very happy....

My partner and I stumbled across Ballahoo while wandering round Basseterre, and were very taken with this restaurant. Ascending to the first floor and seated so we could look down on the central square, we had a really great lunch. I ordered the chicken salad (the chicken came in a tasty curried mayo sauce and was served with pesto pasta... More

Cool setting to watch the town below and all the people. Food is okay, drinks are good and the setting is great.

You are right in the hub but literally on a balcony above the crowd any day of the week. This spot is central to all activity and the drinks are strong and good and the food includes local items...no need to hurry. You are among locals and the tourists in the know of where to go to meet folks. It... More

A hot day and this was a welcome refuge from the heat and dust of the town. It is bright and airy with a view over the town square. Everything fresh and tasty and delivered with a smile. It also has one of the best/cleanest toilets in the Caribbean!
