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.”

“The Best Dinner I had on St. Lucia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I really mean it, this was the best dinner I had on St. Lucia. For an appetizer definitely try the garlic cheese bread. For the main course go with one of the Dorado options. I had the special which was the Dorado topped with Shrimp in a special sauce. It was incredible.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Having eaten here on our last visit to St Lucia in 2009 and having a very memorable meal, we were disappointed this time. It was as though Buzz has either changed hands or is resting on its laurels. The atmosphere is still excellent but the food was only average and the service has lapsed from its previous high standard. The prices though are still on the high side.

“Patio Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Buzz has a great atmosphere--nice patio and lawn dining. We had fabulous seafood on our last night. Try the Banana Pecan bread pudding for dessert.

“So good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

After an awful wet jeep safari day my wife and I were not in great humour when we arrived at Buzz. That was soon to change after a few drinks served by the very attentive and caring staff followed by our best meal in St Lucia (snapper with shrimps was to die for)
Thank you for rounding off a miserable day so well and cheering us up no end.

“Best dining in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The essence of good dining, welcoming attentive staff, excellent choice of fish or meat dishes with ambience whether outside or inside. Wednesday nights they have live music where you can still hear the conversation. We visited twice because the food was so good.
