Wonderful food in a backyard BBQ atmosphere. The chef is a character, and likes to give table touches while he cooks your food, with a complimentary drink or high five. I had the conch curry and it was delicious. One of my favorite places on the Island.

Everything is $18 BZD ($9 US) and you feel like you're in a friend's backyard. Would definitely go back!

This place is exactly what I imagined would be on a Caribbean island. We were given loads of free rum punch because a girl on the table next to us knew someone that knew the owner! Super friendly and chilled out with the most delicious food (veggie option available!)

Chill, laid back atmosphere. Outdoor dining under the stars. The best BBQ seafood and great place to hang with friends.

Quiet place at the back of the island. Friendly staff, great food, awesome atmosphere. When you arrive they warn that there is a half hour wait for food despite minimal clientele, this is because they prepare meals as ordered and cook on the open BBQ. The food was well worth the wait and big portion sizes. Cheap too.

I was dubious whether Wish Willy would live up to its hype. We never made it there when were on CC a few years ago, so we made sure we got there this time. The food was great. We had lobster and pork chops, both of which were wonderful as were the vegetables that came with them.

This is a great place for food! The food was fresh and cooked right in front you. The grilled vegetables that accompany the meat/fish are to die for, really tasty! Its a lovely, chilled out atmosphere however I would recommend taking some insect repellent as its all outside seating! We visited Wish Willy's a couple of times during our trip... More

Wish Willies is the best on the Island. It is such a cool place to eat, lovely atmosphere and the meal was DELICIOUS. The owner also cooked our freshly caught fish... It was cooked to perfection with his own seasoning. A MUST!!!

The restaurant is in the yard of a family home but the food is delicious and the service excellent. Our waiters ran their butts off to ensure everyone was well-served (there were two large groups in at the time) and were very friendly. The menu isn't extensive as it's all home cooked on the BBQ. The chicken was excellent as... More

The atmosphere is great. The food was very good. The lobsters were smaller than at other places but heck, so was the bill. The pork chop was seriously the best thing on the menu, don't let it be passed by bc lobster is on the menu. I highly suggest going with a bunch of people, split pitchers of rum punch... More
