Low key seafood meal

We went to Buddies with another couple. It was a nice casual restaurant with great seafood. You can pick out your own lobster and fish to grill. Great food!

The staff, the food, the open and friendly atmosphere. Great! Their location is also ideal. Place your order, take a swim and return to hot food. Perfect!

Food and service fine and reasonable portions. Drinks strong- reasonable price. We attempted a second visit but were forced back by the stink of raw sewage. It was dreadful. I feel sorry for the owners, probably not their fault.

Never go to a restaurant where the surrounding air smells like sewerage. We were really hungry and caved in, despite the odor. What a mistake. Food was C+, atmosphere was D-.

Finally tried Buddies and was really impressed by the food we had. The restaurant is at the far end of the strip (it is the very last one) and backs onto the lagoon rather that the beach. The wind was blowin towards the sea and we could smell the lagoon as we walked there but once inside the restaurant there... More

I just got back from buddies. I've eaten at several great places here on st kitts. This was not one of them. I had the ribs which were really fatty and the sauce was more vinegary than I like. I chose the garlic bread over the fries and there was more than enough of that. Others had the barbecued chicken... More

All the way at the end of the strip. Seafood so incredibly fresh, right from the ocean that day. For vodka drinkers, pair it with pineapple juice: better than OJ. Great local atmosphere. Tony the bartender was very friendly and helpful.
