Beat this for low food miles!

Stayed in st Mary's but came on a supper boat. Had to preorder the food when we booked the trip, shame we weren't made aware of the whole menu as lobster scampi sounded amazing, sadly we were only made aware of fish and chips and it was too late to change the order (this may not have been the fault...

Dropped by here for meal and a ceilidh - lovely evening all-round. Fish and chips were good but vegetrian alternative of a veggie burger with no bun was disappointing.

My husband and I ate here during our stay on St Martin's last week and we absolutely loved it. The food was fantastic and great that we could also get a bottle of wine from the vineyard next door to go with it. The atmosphere was buzzing and the staff very friendly. I'd definitely recommend booking in if you're fortunate... More

Very good, fresh fish and chips offered to eat in or take away at this restaurant in Higher Town. Lobster, sausages and other chip shop fare are also available. They also offer a selection of bottled beers and wines from the vineyard next door, along with a number of desserts. Seating is available indoors, or on the outdoors covered patio.... More

As features in BBC Coast Programme. If you are staying on St Martins, you will certainly end up here anyway. There is a limited menu. It's fish and chips or lobster tails and chips. Peas come with both. There are usually a couple of sweets and local ice cream. What they do, they do superbly. I always have the lobster... More

Only thing wrong with this place is that it is not open enough... do check the hours before getting excited about your lovely supper there.

St. Martins is a fabulous island and in my humble opinion it's the best. There are quite a few places to eat and all of them serve some of the best food I've ever tasted. Adam's is no exception. We were lucky enough to eat here twice and the lobster tails are succulent and moreish! I am still dreaming about... More

We visited on the supper boat from St Mary's and enjoyed the experience. However, having read the reviews on here before we came we were rather disappointed with our fish, but maybe we were just unlucky. Unfortunately the batter was too thick, it was also overcooked, and there wasn't that much fish inside. The service was very good from friendly... More

Boat trip from St Mary's to St Martins's and fish and chips has got to be good! And it is! A warm welcome awaits with fish and chips as good as it gets!
