We arrived at Cathy's because the restaurant we wanted to go to wasn't open this particular night. And the shady cab driver we had seemed to know this, and advised we go here instead. Once we arrived we were immediately put off by the smell, and it's almost like we weren't even welcome (This must be an island thing). Everything... More

This is probably one of our group's favorite places for dinner on the beach. When you show up with 16 people, it can be challenging for these small kitchens to put out that much food at once, but they all tried. Just don't be in any hurry.

Food is OK. But smell on the back of the shack is terrible. This is not Cathy's problem, the problem is that there is "freight" area behind the joint, and all spilled oils and etc.. produce nasty smell. So be aware.

Don't be put off by appearances, this beach bar restaurant serves up tremendous food, especially fish. There is always a wait, but just enjoy the beach views and drinks. You will have to wait for beach tables but there is normally room inside. The lobster at $35 is a particular treat, although we also had steamed snapper at $15, but... More

Cathy's is a local beach bar/restaurant with little or no ambiance but delicious, abundant food. The ribs were some of the best I've eaten, and the shrimp and side dishes were all good as well. The 'problem' was that when we first arrived, there were no tables outside so we indicated that we wanted to wait. We were told we... More

We had a fantastic supper at Cathy's. Great food, and lots of it. Don't be in a hurry, because they aren't (like so many places on St. Kitts). Just sit back and enjoy the view--and the rum punch.

This is a great little restaurant. You sit at a picnic table on the beach. They serve fresh grilled lobster, ribs, chicken and fish. It is just fabulous. The sides were as flavorful as the grilled meats.

Were we going to go to Shiggidy Shack for the lobster feast and bonfire but were told by more than one person to eat at Cathy's, and go to Shiggidy Shack for the entertainment, and that Cathy's food was much better. We took their advice and were very glad we did. We got there about 6 and they had just... More

Had heard a lot about Cathy's and popped in for a lunch there a couple of times - opting to eat out on the beach, rather than inside. Service is St Kitts speed. We had the garlic prawns/fries both times and quality and quantity was variable. Most evenings I saw that the place was ususlly busy.
