Description: Whatever you do, don’t leave Buzz till your last night. Besides their à la carte menu they have nightly specials. Buzz has been operating for 12 years and Pat Bowden and Chef Marie who have worked together for 37 years have been successful in all their restaurants. Pat has created a restaurant and bar with a warm ambience, friendly atmosphere and lots of charm. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and as the name implies, is abuzz with activity. Food is presented on dishes in varying shapes, sizes and colours. Buzz is known for Seafood; Fresh Tuna, Potato Crusted Snapper, Baked Mahi Mahi filled with Avocado and Shrimp, Swordfish and a variety of Shrimp, Scallop & Lobster dishes (in season). House specialities include Homemade Raviolis, Lamb Shanks, West Indian Pepperpot, Rack of Lamb & Black Angus Beef hand trimmed and served with a variety of sauces. Homemade Desserts include a Trio of Crème Brûlée, Warm Apple Crêpes, Chocolate Mousse and Banana Pecan Bread Pudding. Mervin the Bartender will whip up fun cocktails like our “famous” Mango Dacquiri, Buzzing Bee Stinger and Buzz Cooler. Not only does Mervin keep the guests amused with his “chat”, he also keeps the children amused with his “card tricks.”

“Pricey, but great seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Was a bit concerned when I walked by at 6:30 on a Thursday night and there was nobody seated, nor when I returned at 7:40, but decided to take a chance. Glad I did - the seafood was superb. Got a shrimp appetizer with a creole sauce, and the king mackerel catch of the day, grilled with a cajun-style rub. They were excellently prepared, and tasty. The accompanying Caesar salad was relatively bland and forgettable. For initially being the only customer (two couples came in over the next hour or so) the staff attention was rather lacking. While better than having someone hover over me, the water glass was hardly ever refilled, and ordering took a rather long time. I enjoyed myself, but it would have been much more fun with more activity, and I will probably look first at other options when I return to Gros Islet.

“Great restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We were referred by a friend who consults to the local government. Walked over and were seated at a lovely table outdoors. We had seafood creole and local lobster. Both delicious. The owner is apparently from Namibia however she wasn't around the evening we were there.
