While on a 10-day bareboat charter recently, we ended up mooring in the quiet bay on the East end of Jost where this place is located (along with Abe's and Sydney's). Since we were on a mooring that belongs to this place, we decided to try it. Later conversations led us to think we might have been... read more

This was our 2nd visit. On our sailing adventure in 2012, Harris' was a highlight. As we planned our 2015 sailing trip, a return visit was required. As island restaurants go, the menu was standard, a fish dish, bbq chicken, a pasta, ribs, and grilled lobster. This trip, same as 2012, the food was good just nothing out of the... More

Wonderful meal. Cynthia is a sweet lady. Great lobster in a less populated area on the island. Great veggi plate.

Harris Place is such a great find. This is what the Caribbean was like twenty/thirty years ago. Sandy floors, rough wood framing, colorful lights and paint and nice friendly people. Cynthia is a hoot and a sweat heart, who goes out of her way to make you feel at home. Other places in the BVI have gone a little too... More

What a great place to eat and drink and off the beaten path. We anchored in Little Harbor Jost Van Dyke because the other harbors were full. Little Harbor has a few mooring balls and is not very popular. After we tied up, Cynthia (the owner of Harris' Place) motored out to collect the mooring fee. She personally invited us... More

We met Cynthia when she came around to pick up mooring fees. She talked in detail about here menu so we decided to go for dinner. We had the BBQ platter and all the meat was very good, moist and full of flavor. it was odd, dish came with baked potato or rice side, but she never asked what we... More

Cynthia is a heck of a hostess! Lobster was HUGE and atmosphere was too fun. If you like being loved on, big lobsters and cold drinks go see Cynthia at Harris Place!

9 days in the BVIs, and this was our group's favorite restaurant of the week. Little Harbour is a great change of pace from the overcrowded anchorages with over-priced restaurants, and Harris' fits the vibe perfectly: laid-back, low-key, and extremely welcoming. You cannot beat the $62 specials (all you can eat lobster or pork) and our first round of drinks... More

We made reservations (required) for four couples to eat dinner here. The outdoor restaurant has covered tables in the sand just steps away from the water. Ask about their 'all you can eat lobster special' which occurs on certain days of the week. The lobster portions were huge & cooked to perfection. The owner Cynthia is a treat & fun... More

Our second dinner at Harris' Place was just as good as the last time we visited. Cynthia makes you feel like you're a guest in her home. Love the lobster and lobster bisque. If your boat is on one of her mooring balls she doesn't charge for the mooring if you come in for dinner. Best to let her know... More
