Undoubtedly, the best place around Beach No.5. Great Indian preparations, Continental was average, nice soft music and sea breeze. Alcohol is not available but you can bring your own. In peak season, they frequently have a bonfire and barbeque on the beach. Just keep an eye out for the dogs on the property which have open access to the bistro... More

Food is good but the menu is limited. You will find options for veggies and non-veggies. Whatever is prepared by the cooks is cooked well and is tasty. Just a pointer, the food they make is usually a little on the bland side because guests from many foreign countries are there. So if you like you food a little spicy... More

I'm a dog lover and the island is full of dogs. But most of the other are clean. At least the one's near the restaurant. Here you had 4-5 skinny, flea-infested dogs with the fleas visibly active on their torsos lazing around tables and chairs in an otherwise very charming open- restaurant. The bistro touches the sea at high tide.... More

I stayed at Emerald Gecko and Blackbeard's Bistro definitely made it worth it! I loved the vibe of this place, and the crowd was always interesting. The food was fantastic too, I miss it already. Definitely worth a visit.

It's On the beach, about 100 yards from the very swimmable sea! The food is excellent. But then again i didn't eat veg. I LOVE my seafood and they do it very well.

Fresh food, great beach location, young trendy and relaxed vibe without making this 40something feel out of place so casual enough to blend in.... Sometimes the zen feel was a little too chil-axed as it was so dimly lit it was hard to really see what you were eating... an issue with shrimp with their tails on.... Only issue is... More

We were staying at the Emerald Gecko while at Havelock and therefore got multiple instances to eat at Blackbeard's Bistro. The menu, while limited has quite a range for everyone. Ample vegetarian as well as seafood and poultry. The sheer variety of fish on offer, from barracuda to snapper to Trevalli was outstanding. Breakfast was excellent as well with the... More
