We ate breakfast here quite a few times as well as lunch one day. The breakfasts are really good & excellently priced. So worth every penny. We also had lunch one day. FYI...their philly cheesesteak sandwiches have jalapenos on them in case you don't like heat. It don't remember it being mentioned... read more

Overpriced and very small portions for the price. All of the pastas were more expensive and simple salads were 11-15 euros.

There are some great restaurant in this area. Each has its own strengths. The food is great at Daniels but the true strength of this restaurant is the relaxed ambiance. The restaurant is built on a boardwalk. Most of the tables are under huts with open sides and palm frond roofs. The only thing missing from my visit to Daniels... More

went one day for breakfast and one day for lunch. The breakfast is really cheap and worth the price. try the johnny cakes, they are great. Lunch was great too. Had a Cesar salad and a jerk chicken sandwich. the drinks were also great and they have a special for $1 Carib's all day long. Will definitely go back there... More

Busby's remains a great place to kick-back, relax, and forget the cares of the world. Enjoy the sound of the ocean and enjoy great company while consuming very good food. Great for couples as well as families. Excellent service with a great view. From light lunches to great Italian and seafood fare at dinner. Or simply enjoy a pizza. This... More

The view is beautiful but service and food is just ok. Plastic tables and chairs, but food was too expensive. Service is really not great. We were one of two tables and the waitress was gone for 20 minutes. When she returned she took orders and left. She came back with food and was asked for coffee refills, but those... More

We've been going to Mr Busby's for 5 years - on our annual trips to SXM. Food has always been decent and views great. Service has always been mediocre - but our recent experience has really put us off. The Friday night hostess was so nasty to me and my husband (our offense, pulling an extra chair over to our...

This is what you think of when you plan on a beach bar/restaurant. Can hear the ocean as you have a nice dinner. Lighter lunch menu also good. Did not appreciate the massive signs threatening to tow your car if you park there and don't eat there. This is the only place to park for access to the beach. Service... More
