We have visited St. John's for 4 years and have never been to Vie's so we decided to plan our day so that we would be there early afternoon. There were 6 of us and we arrived at about 2:30pm. on a Tuesday. Vie's daughter was there. Vie herself was not. She told us that a bus had stopped and... More

Found Vie's as part of tour of island with relatives... Great location near a quiet beach - which costs $2.50 to use - but the water is warm and Vie (I presume) has provided guests with changing and restroom facilities as part of the experience. Food is good, the conch fritters were small, but perfectly formed and there was enough... More

We had the garlic chicken, which is served with rice and beans and johnnycake. The fried chicken was crispy and tasty, not greasy, but so moist. The beans and rice were perfectly seasoned. The johnnycake was a hot fresh donut with honey. Soooo delicious, hot and fresh. The sweetened ice tea is a perfect pairing. Don't miss this gem for... More

Came here with high expectations due to the glowing reviews. Seems like everyone is too blissed out on the amazingness of St. John and the warm Caribbean sun to judge what good food is. Don't get me wrong, the food was ok, just not great. I tried the conch fritters (it was hard to find any chunks of actual conch... More

Being out on this part of the island is great for the rugged solitude but having a place like Vie's nearby is awesome. Using their beach and planning around lunches here became the highlight of our trip. TRY THE CURRY! On the first day we tried the garlic chicken we tried the jonny cakes we tried the conch fritters.

We make it out to Vie's at least once during our yearly trip to St. John. Her conch fritters are probably the best on the whole island. We love Vie's but are sad to see it getting busier each year... we felt like it was our little secret! Obviously not with a few hundred reviews LOL Guess our secret is... More

Get the Conch Fritters and the Garlic Chicken! I don't know how Vie cooks such delicious food in her little "shack," but she sure does. We had a fabulous lunch after a morning kayaking and snorkeling with Hidden Reef Eco tours.

Ms. Vie offers great fried chicken and red beans and rice along with other island food. The seating is outside on picnic tables along the road. I know that it doesn't sound like much and it is a long way to get there, but worth the trip. That is also where you pay $2.50 per person to go to her... More

Vie's was on our must do list and we were not disappointed. We had both the Conch Fritters and Garlic Chicken with Johnny Cakes. Everything was fantastic. The desserts were incredible. Vie's is definitely worth the time and drive tithe East End.

Neat little outdoor stand run by locals. We had the conch fritters and rice, and that was very adequate for lunch for two of us. The nearby beach (also owned by the same people) is well worth a visit for the small admission fee. It is operated on "island time," so don't be in a big hurry to get your... More
