Definitely worth a visit to taste delicious food, cooked with love. The main course offered a variety of tasty vegetables all prepared differently and served with the option of fish, chicken or lamb chop. The location is set high up amongst the trees, basic and simple” taverna” seating. Refreshingly authentic.

Having been pretty unimpressed with most of the restaurants in Bequia, this tip from the local owners of our villa, was spot on. It was a bit of an adventure finding the place (I wouldn't recommend driving yourself), but once settled in, the whole experience was a delight. The food is limited to what the chef has picked up that... More

We had dinner this week at Fernandos. Good home cooked food in a charming veranda setting with a surprisingly wide choice of wines on the wine list. We're planning to go again before the end of our holiday. Do ring ahead for a reservation as there's limited seating.

One of the best things about Fernandos is the simple menu recited by the waitress as she serves each table in turn. Because it's limited you know it's freshly cooked. No chips or burgers here. We both enjoyed the lentil soup to start and then chicken served with a variety of vegetable dishes all tasty. For dessert I had my... More

It has a strange feeling. Nothing for children, surly staff, below average food choice - just not a good choice.

Make a reservation or you will be probably out of luck for this experience. Brilliant range of local food, fish, chicken, etc., plus local veggies. Wonderful atmosphere. Great service. Only open for dinners, so take a taxi, cus you'll be challenged to find it first time round. Recommended. You won't be disappointed!

From the reviews, we had high hopes of Fernando's. Yes, it was simple and charming, if rather crushed together, and our welcome was warm. The food, however, was mediocre at best. The much vaunted calliou (?) soup was pretty ordinary, and the fish (barracuda the only option) was overcooked and tasteless. The famed 6 vegetable portions was something we had... More

Excellent food, ambience and very good value for money. Just what you want from a Caribbean restaurant. You have to book.

Fernando's Hideaway is a must visit on a trip to Bequia. An authentic Caribbean diner perched amongst the trees on the hillside above Lower Bay. The ambience is the best on Bequia - rustic simplicity with illumination by candles in old floor bags on the tables. The menu is simple, soup to start (no choice) fish or meat, and then... More
