Quirky local cafe

As long as you take this place not too seriously then you'll be able to enjoy it. Forget trying to ring for a booking, just drop by and see when they can give you a table (or just turn up after 8pm). Food is absolutely fine but nothing to rave about; our party of four had a meal any competent... read more

During our 9 day holiday we have eaten here 3 times so good was the food. Everything is very fresh and real traditional food. The staff, Nick in particular made our whole experience in the restaurant extremely pleasant and if back on the island we'll definately be back here.

Not much to look at but a great place to eat. Reservations are required as there is a loyal long-term clientele. Service is friendly and you feel like a regular on the first visit. Fish is perfectly cooked and ribs fall off the bones from long cooking. Always a great evening out.

This is a small shack restaurant that is located no where near the beach. However the miss matched tables, the "come dressed as you are" atmosphere. The fresh fish that is cooked to perfection is worth the trip. If you're looking for a place to wear a suit and tie to, then don't go here. However if you want a... More

Belting place for local food, not that many tables so I would book. Bar service was good when we arrived, we waited a little longer for a table outside, as inside was like a sauna. 6 of us all enjoyed the food and 4 of returned for another night when we had come home. All the usual Bajan Cuisine, well... More

This is a small venue so fills quickly. During high season it is imperative that you make a reservation. Its all worth it. The food is of good quality and you get a good portion. For a small business there is a lot of choice on the menu. We tried both veg and non-veg options and all were satisfied. Will... More

This is not somewhere you would find without knowing about it as it is tucked away off the main road in Rockley but we're very glad we found it. I had a real craving for ribs and the ribs here are excellent! Tasty and fresh. My husband had the dolphin which was also excellent. Nice ambience and a great place... More

Great food, fresh fish, tasty ribs, hearty meals. Everyone raves about the key lime cheesecake which was nice but not fantastic. Next time I'd have an appetiser and skip the dessert. Book ahead to avoid disappointment!

fab fish and chips and veggie burgers, busy so book if you can! Wish we'd discovered it earlier in our holiday as we went the last 2 nights of our trip and would've gone again! Great value, highly recommend.
