Great steak and ribs place

This little joint offers great ribs and local steaks at a reasonable price. We went twice during our week visit and all our meals were great. We tried the seafood chowder and fish duo the second visit and were both lovely. A hidden treasure for good food!

Brilliant food, great, personalised service.... the chef came out and made sure everything was to our liking... The T-bone steak melted in my mouth, it was so tender.... genuinely a spectacular night out

Went here for dinner one night with my friend. It was pretty quiet- so not surprising that there was only one cook/waiter who was the owner. Decor is lackadaisical, but there are some interesting photos!!!! I ordered the chicken dumpling soup (special) and garlic bread, my friend had the local eye fillet. Presentation could be better, but everything tasted good.... More

We enjoyed a very nice fish topped with prawn meal and the service was prompt and very friendly. Well worth a visit especially if you want a nice steak too.

A very colonial façade invites you in to this place filled with love! I say that because it is very obvious by the quality of the food, the manner in which it is served, the service standard of the staff and the attention to detail, the little extras. An unforgettable dining experience. Table seating is practical and not overcrowded, the... More

We ate twice here during our one week stay and were impressed both times.The smoked meat was delicious and SO tender. The sweets were also a delight.

This place is a bit of a walk from Burnt Pine main street and they call themselves the Steak Experts so I put them to the test with a 450gm T-Bone. It was perfectly cooked to order and was very nice. Whilst the steak is not as good quality as Norfolk Blue, Barney Duffey's is much cheaper and easier to... More

This restaurant is a very short drive from the middle of Burnt Pine towards the airport. We left our booking details on the board at the front of the restaurant, which seems customary on the island. My husband had ribs, which were lovely and tender (and accompanied by a fresh garden salad) and I had a chicken dish. The accompanying... More

I would not be likely to return. Not all menu items are available. This can happen anywhere of course, but a warning at some point which items on the menu are not available or seasonal only would be most helpful. Ambience? The faux tudor exterior seems tired and run down and the interior is worse. My partner's mother recommended this... More

Quaint little place with great tasting ribs. The husband had the seafood chowder as a starter and couldn't help raving about it.
