Great beach setting with delicious barbecue and drinks. Next to a cyber cafe. The full moon festival is something to behold!

“BVI Find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

A great find on Tortola, BVI! De Loose Mongoose Restaurant is on the beach in Trellis Bay, British Virgin Islands. Trellis Bay hosts a number of beach bar/restaurants on the East End of Tortola. There are also great Art Gallery Shop with only island made crafts as well as other small shops. We went to Trellis Bay for the "Full Moon Festival" in June. The Full Moon celebrations have become somewhat legendary in the BVI. We went to Trellis Bay for the Full Moon Fest while on vacation recently. We had planned to go to De Loose Mongoose for dinner. Each of the restaurants on the beach hosts a Caribbean Buffet featuring island cuisine dishes. Such a variety each distinctly tasty – too much to even sample everything! First we started off at the Beach Bar where the bartender was extremely friendly and helpful about general Island information and where to go for what. Tasty drinks and small bites are available too. The Buffet was the star of the show. Kudos to Chef/Owner Neil Cline who is a talented chef and wonderful host. We will make De Loose Mongoose a must for future visits to Tortola!

“Great Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

This is a small charming resturant set on a nice beach. The service is warm and friendly. The food is excellent, some of the best I have eaten. The prices are good but honestly the food is so good I won’t mind paying more but hopefully they do not raise prices. Be sure to go there for Sunday Brunch and make sure to have the lobster!

“Simple Fun and Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

As part of our last multi day sail we spend a night here, the food is amazing, the owners are friendly, the guest rooms are perfect for a one or two night stay. Best meal i had in a week. Make sure you say Hi to Kelly behind the bar and the owners. Keep on rocking
