You've got more than a few options for a classy dinner on Bequia, but The Fig Tree is undoubtedly one of the best. We dined at all of the highest rated (on TripAdvisor) restaurants on Bequia, and this one - more than any of the others - lived up to its reputation. Unlike some of the other highly-rated restaurants on the island, we felt that the menu at The Fig Tree was much more authentic. We had lunch and dinner here - both were excellent. The "fish dinner" was our favorite. You're gonna get what was caught that day, along with a selection of local sides. All amazing. The service is friendly and efficient. The "chicken dinner" and "lobster dinner" were also great, but not as good as the fish.
Unlike some of the other eateries on the Belmont Walkway, The Fig Tree has it's own driveway and parking area. This is a great touch, especially at night. Also, there is something special about this place as a whole. With some of the other excellent restaurants on the island, you know you're just helping to line the pockets of a rich foreign investor. But with The Fig Tree, you're supporting a LOCAL establishment with close ties to the community (ask Cheryl about their children's reading program!).
We also LOVED the Sweety Bird Cafe in town, run by the same management (Cheryl) as The Fig Tree. It's an even more local experience with great food for an unbelievable price. Don't miss it!
