We were on a mooring ball in the bay and came here for dinner. Cynthia was a great personality and very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our meal with the sand under our feet and the water nearby.

This place may be called Harris' place but it is all about Cynthia. She is front and centre, a great bubbly character. The food is great too, we had a table right on the beach. Every one of our party of six had a great meal and a great time, I had the mixed BBQ plate, ribs and spicy chicken... More

The owner, Cynthia, greeted us personally and served our dinners herself. Warm and friendly indeed! Our drinks were average at best. The food was very good, but we wondered why her restaurant, rated #2 in Jost Van Dyke, was nearly empty while unrated Sydney's Peace and Love had a waiting line. The answer? You are sitting at a picnic table... More

This fabulous proprietor keeps you in stitches while your trying to stay on two feet at her bar.... Her drinks are knockouts and her stories are just the best. Attentive, friendly and oh so fun. Gonna see you again soon, girl.

First off, it is worth going to Harris just to meet owner Cynthia. She is a storybook character and has a wonderful personality and charm. She gave us a tour of her property earlier in the day, showed us her favorite snorkeling spot and charmed the heck out of us. Dinner was wonderful. During outside, waterside (2 feet from the...

We went to Harris' in June based on a recommendation and loved it. Cynthia, the chef and owner greeted us upon our arrival and told us about the options on the menu. Monday night is Lobster night there and that's exactly what we got. And it was delicious. Biggest and best lobster either of us had ever had.The location was... More

As with other reviewers, as soon as we'd moored, Cynthia came out in here boat to great us and give us a sample menu (as did Sydney). We went to the bar in the afternoon and Cynthia made us very welcome (more Painkillers) and even showed us a fantastic snorkelling point round the back of the restaurant. We went back... More

We picked up a mooring ball in Little Harbor and were greeted shortly by Cynthia in her runabout. She was extremely friendly as we gave her our order for dinner. We had eaten at Sydney's Peace and Love previously but wanted to give Hariss' Place a try. Ms. Cynthia cooked us five of the best lobsters we have ever had!... More

Many years ago we were fortunate to have visited Sydney's Peace and Love Restaurant in Little Harbor, Jost Van Dyke, BVI. and tried Caribbean Lobster for the first time. It was such a fantastic meal, the freshest of lobster grilled to perfection and slathered with melted butter and splashed with fresh lime juice. So our hope was to return again... More

Cynthia Harris Jones served a fine simple meal. Her drinks are guaranteed to be the best in the BVI or they are free! How can it be any better? Have dined with Cynthia a few times since 1999 and never been disappointed. The lobster is so fresh that you can order it in the morning and she will have it... More
