Fernando is still the best cook on the island!

It was a very slow dry season this year but we did make sure we found Fernandos open twice and both times it was fantastic. The thing about Fernandos are the sides. The meat makes up about 20% of the meal and the 4-5 sides make up the rest. If you are traveling to Bequia you must make sure... read more

All I have to say about Fernando's is- it is the best kept secret in Bequia. The food is authentic and FABULOUS! The sides are what keep us coming back. The menu is simple -you will have a choice of 2 types of meat. Your fish/lamb/chicken main course will also come with at least 5 authentic local sides. YUM YUM... More

I've been to Fernando's Hideaway about 5 times over the years when sailing in the Grenadines and it is definitely my favorite restaurant in the islands. The food is always fresh and delicious with an interesting array of vegetables served with your choice of entre. I find the fish isusually the best choice as you can be sure it is... More

Limited menu, but delicious Vincentian cuisine with amazing fresh fish. Hard to find, but worth trying.

We visited Fernando's as a group of friends after having read the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. I think most reviews make it clear that this is not a "posh restaurant" but a very high standard informal restaurant serving fresh authentic Caribbean food. It does not attempt to be pretentious but serves very tasty meals utilizing locally... More

My wife and I ate at Fernando's Hideaway last night and I must say that the effusive reviews from other posters are not exaggerated! The food was excellent plus! The stars of the meal were the vegetables! I had fish and my wife had pork - but with them we had eight or ten separate vegetables. Each portion was small... More

We were staying at The Bequia Beach Hotel and were there half board so no real incentive to eat out. The food was excellent at BBH but guests we had met all raved about Fernando's and it was a must visit. So along with 2 other hotel guests we took ourselves off to Fernando's. The setting was above Lower Bay... More

Fernando's - or Nando's to the locals - is a cosy restaurant on a rise set far back from the road at the town end of Lower Bay. You would not realise it was there unless someone took you (and reserved a table days beforehand). Run by the idiosyncratic owner and with his two twin(?) daughters serving, this is an... More
