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

Great lunch spot to watch the comings and goings of the capital. Get there early or a little late for lunch so you can set at on of the tables over looking the town square. Nice selections of appetizers, salads and sandwiches. I ordered the chicken and avocado sandwich which came on a nice whole grain bread and included bacon,... More

The Ballahoo is conveniently located in the heart of St. Kitts, where there are great shopping spots in walking distance. Plus it overlooks the Circle Clock & you can also view docked Cruise ships...makes for scenic pics. There's local refreshing drinks (may I suggest the Ginger beer - be warned though, its strong) to quench your thirst while you feast... More

In the old part of town, there are not a lot of restaurants, but this is one of the better ones. I especially enjoyed their salt and pepper calamari, it was grilled with a warm red pepper and local spices, very tasty. I get tired of fried calamari. The conch chowder was tasty, though I thought they went a bit... More

We have been here for lunch before, and it was fun, with a good lunch menu. The lunch menu now includes several items that I would consider dinner items. We both got the lobster club sandwich, which was quite good. There are many window tables, from which you can watch the hustle and bustle of Basseterre.The interior has some island... More

Overlooking what is Basseterre's equivalent of Piccadilly Circus, this is a great people watching place.The staff are very friendly and efficient. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing on that day but the chicken roti I had was very disappointing.The roti, essentially the wrap, was stale. The chicken was okay and well seasoned. The local juices very good. If you're in... More

We had lunch overlooking the Circus and the setting was great. The food was excellent in quality and value. I had a fish cake special with veggies and rice, which was excellent and my wife had a chicken breast specially prepared for her, which was also very good. Food price for lunch was $35.
