“Had a great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We wanted to eat in a open air place so we chose this one. I had the chicken curry with vegetables and rice and it was very good. I had a local beer that went well with my food. My wife had the chicken roti with water that she said was very tasty. If we are ever back on St. Kitts we will be back.

“Looked inviting and lived up to expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

St Kitts has only been a day's cruise stop and a trip around the town for us before but this time we decided to try some local cuisine. This restaurant looked interesting and is in the centre of Basseterre with its quirky Circus. We chose well because it was a great place for just chilling out and relaxing. Our food could definitely be described as a 'touch of the Caribbean' and the seafood dishes, especially the fritters were really good. Drink and food prices were less than we expected and the service was friendly so it was hard to drag ourselves away! If we ever visit this beautiful island again we'll find the time to drop in and sample some more.

“Our Basseterre Rendezvous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We always make a point of heading for Ballahoo when on St Kitts. Not only do you get good food and drink at a reasonable price but it allows you to watch the world go by in Picadilly Circus below. The added bonus is that the girls can go shopping leaving the guys to chill.

“Go for Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We've visited St Kitt's for 4 vacations, and the Ballahoo is our favorite for breakfast. The food and service is always good, but if you get there early enough you can watch the town come to life - it's so fun to see! Prices are good and the food is fresh and cooked to your liking. Give it try-you won't be disappointed.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We ate here for night whilst in St Kitts. We were the only people in the restaurant. This restuarant is right in the centre of Basseterre and overlooks the circus. Basseterre is prett quiet once the cruise ships have departed.
Food was ok. I had speak with a sauce, i scraped the sauce off as it was runny and fatty. Chips were great though!!
Children friendly, quite relaxed dining.
