Great lunch spot

Lovely spot to have a beer or two and some lunch. We spent two days in Bequia and both days managed to find ourselves here. The free internet absolutely helped but the food was also very good. The first day I had a delicious chicken sandwich and the second a fish sandwich that was equally as... read more

If you order a hamburger you will get it well done or very well done - it doesn't matter what you order. I got food poisoning from this place. It has more flies than a dead horse. Service is rotten if at all busy.

We were here with a group of people and we were accommodated perfectly. Food arrived at the same time, was reasonably priced and very very good.

Nice terrace cafe in central location with a gorgeous view of the bay. Go for the view and free wifi and cable TV, but spend the least amout of money you can. Ordering food is painful and you get service with a frown. Also beware that even though the menu says all main courses include two side dishes not all... More

As you walk in you are taken by the view of the harbour. But I worn you be prepared for staff attitude in abundance and even owner attitude when you point out that his staff need to be trained not only how to work in this business but how to behave...BIG WARNING you do not get sides with all the...

This is a lovely upstairs location in the town but no more than adequate. We visited 4 evenings and felt let down by the owner's service and general ambience. The tables were not particularly clean and felt 'sticky' and we didn't feel inclined to try the food which seemed relatively expensive.

Only two staff, so it was a bit of a wait for the food, but once received, it was very good. The place was full, even in the off season.

Food was ok, nothing great. We were there late and required a taxi to get back to lower bay. One of their employees offered to drive us. We didn't know if he was doing it free of charge but I figured we'd at least give him what we paid the taxi driver to get into town. When he dropped us... More

Food on Bequia can be expensive, even by Caribbean standards. Maria's is the place to go if you're looking for good, affordable food. The fish and chips (30EC), fish burger (20EC) and BBQ pork burger (20EC) are all delicious. Beers are a good price at 7EC. They also have wi-fi and a big screen tv, which is perfect for watching...
