I thought it was an average bar, but it resulted into a good place to have breakfast and lunch. I really had a nice time there and prices are moderate.

I never had anything mindblowing in the Pirates Arms, but the food is very nice, a good choice of non-fish dishes (may come as a relief for some fish-skeptics).

A great big boisterous place buzzing with locals and tourists. Food is consistently good and solid value for money. They have multiple TVs with DSTV and they even show rugby if requested.

Pirate Arms is located right in the heart of the Victoria market, amazing place to interact with people and is always buzzing with crowd. The waiters will always seem in a rush, with the amount of customers they have to cater to. Service is very quick, unlike most places and prices are very reasonable for both food and drinks. This...

We stopped by the Pirates Arms after a tour around the island, it was packed with tourists, which is a very good indication, the food was yami and the service very friendly. You can't miss it while walking around Victoria town.

Ordered the creole tuna steak here was vile absolutely covered in salt! Not a great atmosphere and toilets lacked cleanliness. Go down the waterfront at Eden Island you won't be disappointed there!

Had visited this restaurant a couple of times before. But dunno how this Sunday food was especially unappetizing. Chicken legs tasted like they were cooked yesterday and heated in microwave oven. My lasagna was made from fettuccine pasta...

When we asked locals about places to eat in Victoria, this place's name came up on several occasions so we decided to give it a try given how popular it seemed. The restaurant is located right in the middle of the town so wasn't hard to find at all. It is set up like a pub cum eating place. The... More
