We last visited the Little Dipper in Oct 2000, over 21 years ago, and weren’t sure if it was still there. The phone number published doesn’t work, but Joan IS still there and the place is still magical. Simple home cooking, no menu just a...conversation “you can have Lambi (Conch), Chicken, Gish or Lobster”…. but it’s delicious, local, fresh food with a stunning view over Prickly Bay. Joan says she opened the year we last went, and we now consider ourselves ‘regulars’! Open for lunch and dinner, for us it’s a ‘must visit’ when on Grenada!More

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious Caribbean meal at Little Dipper, which has an exquisite location overlooking the harbour near Woburn. The chef offers a range of dishes, including shrimp, fish, and chicken. Don't miss the callaloo soup as a starter. This is a...tiny restaurant, extremely clean and well run with attentive service. Definitely recommend for a welcome change from hotel dining.More

Just Brilliant! A very unique restaurant with only 7 tables but the food is fabulous. Limited menu but we all had something different and everything was just perfect. The most delicious callaloo soup, followed by creole chicken( or in the case of my friends garlic...shrimps or tuna creole with ginger!). We were even given a plate of deep fried plantain with a hot pepper and garlic dip on the house as a starter on the house! Just wonderful. Have eaten here twice in a week because it’s so good! A real treat!! Will definitely be back. !More

What a gem this little restaurant is. The owner is also the cook, and the waitress. The view is spectacular over Woburn bay. We got there in the heat of the early evening and watched the sun set on our first time, the second it...was dark and she had lovely little lights around the balcony. The service was excellent - the best we got all week. The menu is simple 2-3 items, plus a soup. Between us we tried 4 different dishes, plus the soup and boy oh boy we were not disappointed. Also on the house we received fried green banana lightly salted and with an amazing spicy garlic dip. The drinks were cold and delicious (rum punch and carib beer). We 100% recommend this lovely little place to anyone staying on the island.More

Wanted somewhere really local to go and were advised that this was definitely the place.... Met every expectation and more! Fabulous, tender Lambi with steamed veggies, succulent fish and wonderful chicken. Friendly service and delicious food from Joan & Rock!

Made a special drive out here for lunch today and so glad we did. Only customers at the time, low season luxury. What a perfect little wooden local place to eat and drink with a fantastic view of Hog Island. We both had Blue Marlin...with local sides of salad, vegetables and a curried pulse, all of which were tasty but the fish was outstanding and at 25 xcd a plate good value too. Highly recommended.More

If you wish to have a true Grenadian dinner and a great view, you must eat here. The menu is small and not written down. You have a choice of conch, chicken, the fresh fish catch of the day or lobster. You choose your entree...and you get the sides that go with it, a small salad and chickpeas perhaps. The food is cooked in a small kitchen just off of the dining room. The food is fresh and are good sized portions. I had the lobster ($65ec) which had 3 large chunks of meat in a nice sauce. The meat was easily plucked from the shell..no hard work here in getting the meat out of the shell. My wife had the fresh fish ($25ec) which was blue marlin. A generous sized filet with a nice blend of spices. The cost for two entrees and three Carib was $105ec ($39us) plus tip, a great value. The small restaurant has 8 tables and may have one of the better views on the island overlooking Woburn Bay. Since it is so small, you should call ahead first or make reservations. They are closed on Sunday. The food was good, not exceptional or truly memorable, but the overall dining experience was very nice.More

We went there for dinner. The place is small and simple but with a terrace overlooking a well kept garden, Clarkes Court Bay, Hog Island and Calivigny Island. A beautiful setting. We were a little early but were warmly welcomed by the owner's busband and...son. The owner was there just a few minutes later and offered a lambi curry as her special dish. We were not disappointed: The lambi was exceptionally tender and there were delicious sides. Our hostess/cook was very friendly and caring. We mentioned mosquitoes and, without being asked for it, she gave us a repellant spray immediatelly. We will go there again.More

The dinner was fabulous! Rashid was a wonderful hostess. We had fried breadfruit with spicy salsa for our complimentary appetizer. My husband had the fish chowder (15$EC). We both had the tuna accompanied with salad, local vegetables, rice, fried plantain and salsa (25$EC). Best meal...upon Grenada. Fantastic views. Rustic atmosphere. A must when visiting Grenada.More

Well, what can I say other than it is worth visiting for the food if not the restaurant itself but, hey, given it is very much like many other small bars and restaurants on the island, this should not put you off. The restaurant is...run by the wife - Joan - of a taxi driver - Rock - living in Woburn who we had used for a number of evening trips out and it was he who first mentioned it. However, he was not the last so on driving past one day - it is easy to miss, we did it twice - we stopped off to book a table for the following evening. We were asked what we would like as we booked so that it would be available fresh on the evening we ate. So, we turned up the following evening, to an eating area which is very rustic to say the least consisting of about 4 tables. We were met by Joan who asked us what we wanted to drink from what was a very limited choice, something we were expecting so were not disappointed. We went with a homemade rum punch, which was excellent, whilst waiting for our meal. Joan supplied us with a complimentary starter - fried green bananas with a salsa sauce - which we both enjoyed. The main courses then arrived - lobster for my wife, and tuna for me, both accompanied by several locally grown organic vegetables. Both were superb, my wife saying it was the best lobster she had ever had, while my tuna - marinated in a lime juice, garlic and herb jus, was definitely up there with the best as well. We had the house red by the glass (not sure white was available) which was very drinkable. So, given eating out should be mainly about the food rather than the restaurant itself, I feel that this one is well worth visiting and one we would return to if ever back in Grenada.More

Service was non existent Atmosphere was nowhere in site. Food was some of the WORST I have ever eaten. Filthy is the other word I will think of when I recall my lack of dining experience.
