I've had many nice lunches and 2 disappointing dinners. The restaurant converts to "Daniel's" serving Italian food that looks better on the menu that what is delivered. The tri-color salad had very limited "tri-color" but the dressing was very good. Our pasta dishes were good but were not hot when served. The cappuccino was a mix...yuk! Our waiter was not... More

This is one of the best beach bars in the world. Busby’s has several large palm trees, with a mix of tables, right on beautiful Dawn Beach. We ate there during the day. The food was well done and tasted delicious. our group had a crab baguette, a BLT, a ribs platter, and hamburgers: excellent! We really enjoyed the made... More

A beautiful location on the beach. This is a small outdoor restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and reasonable prices. My breakfast was delicious, hot, service good and well priced. A nice find with good atmosphere away from hotel food which was pricey.

I eat at Mr. Busy's at least 4-5 times per week when I am visiting the island. Great views of Dawn Beach and the food is amazing. (Jerk Chicken is my favorite) Happy Hour means $1 Amstel Brights and the Lobster Hole where you select and weigh your own lobster is a must. At night the restaurant is transformed into... More
