Our catamaran captain Dirk had us eat dinner on the boat. Began our rum drinking there. We took dingy onto a beach on Bequia to dance to fantastic steel drum band. They were incredible. We ate nothing there, maybe nuts, ,Just had drinks including water. Danced wildly. in the sand. We all loved it. The photo shows the drums.

Went along to the BBQ evening and steel band music night, on a Thursday night. Food was good, with a good selection available. Service at the table and on the bar was a bit slow and could be improved. It is certainly a popular night on the island as the night we went it was very busy. We enjoyed the... More

Frangipanis has been here f0r many a year and maintains a great atmosphere for having drinks in he best bay in the Caribbean (Admiralty Bay). Try their rum punch at happy hour (2 for 1).

Breakfast here was ok, but be prepared to wait, wait, wait. And if you want extra coffee be prepared to wait some more. And don't expect a sme or any eagerness to help... Customer service is nonexistent here. On the up side, there's a nice view of the bay.

On Thursdays, they have a steel band, meaning they have traditional steel drum music, a sand dance floor and most of the visitors to the island on it. They serve a buffet style dinner on those nights, a main dish of either steak or fish and a very large salad bar and wonderful dessert bar. Music starts at 7:00 PM... More

This is a great bar to hang out at. Lots of locals, tourists and boaters congregate here at day's end. The restaurant attracts mainly tourists. Beautiful view of the bay, right on the beach, a very romantic setting.

Given the prominence of this establishment we were disappointed first of all with the additude of the serving staff. In addition, the menu was limited by the lack of available entrees listed on the menu. The food was tasty though but nothing special for the price. We have eaten at several local restaurants in the vicinity so are comparing this... More

A great place to go and meet your friends in the afternoon to watch the sun set over the harbour with a drink. There are amazing jump ups usually on a Friday with a big barbecue, steel band and great atmosphere. Equally as lovely for a morning coffee watching the harbour slowly wake up.

The Frangi is definitely declining. The drinks were the worst Rum punch and Daiquiri I have experienced. The toliet was gross. Rats reported in the rooms by a friend who stayed there and the management didn't seem to care. Sad when an old friend is no longer worth visiting. The number of people there reflect this decline as well.
