Sat right next to the water. Had conch and saltfish fritters. The saltfish was the waitresses suggestion. Should have listed and placed a double order. The saltfish was one the best fritters I have ever eaten. The conch was a little tough. The real winner fro this place was the frozen drinks. In particular the ladies enjoyed the dirty banana....

This is a great place to get a cool beer or frozen fruit drinks. The wings are good, wish it was a bigger order for the price. The staff are really friendly and having WiFi right near the ocean is wonderful.

We rode our bikes here to have a cocktail or three and a snack. Sat right on the beach at one of the tables under some shade and had some conch and saltfish fritters which were excellent. Our server recommended the saltfish and was our favorite. Their dirrty banana daiquiri was one of the best drinks of the trip. I... More

This is a great little local eatery. There is a huge choice of dishes available and we found it to be very reasonably priced. Our group really did try a huge variety of food and there were no complaints. I second the Jerk Chicken Tacos recommendation :) Yes it is a bit slow, but your in Treasure Beach - chill,... More

This Treasure Beach restaurant could be so much more with just a bit of planning and personal attention to details. Owen and Elizabeth, the owners, haven't found the proper management team as yet. The food is consistently good (we go about once every two months), but the staff is lackadaisical and inattentive. Just because you've frequently seen my face in... More

This is a great place to come for drinks in the evening - but don't be in a rush! We went for breakfast before checking out of our rooms nearby. Very average food but an unreasonably long wait. We almost left! And no butter for toast?

We enjoyed eating at Frenchman's Reef during our recent stay in Treasure Beach. The jerked chicken tacos were truly the best I have ever had. We had to wait a bit for our food, but the atmosphere is amazing so we didn't mind at all. The waitresses were great and we had our drinks within a minute or two of... More

I loved the goat curry and my girlfriend loved her jerk chicken, but for some reason the vibe of the place just felt too much like home with how modern everything was. My favorite part about treasure beach was how simple everything was. Simplicity is important to me for a restaurant; I feel better when a place only serves 3... More
