Great environment, and sea views! I took my friends down here and treated them to a wonderful fresh fish with perfectly cooked potatoes and rice! I would highly recommend.

Opened the restaurant for dinner just for the three of us, and he put a table out on the deck for us too! We got to watch the sunset while sipping on rum punch. It was a completely special experience! The food was wonderful and...the experience was just really fantastic!More

What a great experience this was. Three of us went to the restaurant but found it closed. I called the number in front to no avail. However, within 5 minutes the owner returned my call, apologised for being closed and asked whether we would like...to make a reservation for later - it would be just us he was opening for! Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth we came back a few hours later and had a real treat!! The setting was stunning and the host exceedingly charming and graceful. He is also a fantastic cook!!! We had two courses at the end of which he could have reused the plates for another guest as they were that clean! I had to look twice at the bill as it seemed so low (what a rarity that is!) so we left him a tip which was fully deserved. Here is the place to go on the Island for a georgeous Caribbean setting AND fine dining at a more than reasonable cost. Fully deserving of 5 stars!! Do yourself a favour and visit. Give him a call as he is very flexible on times. Excellent experience!!More

We booked ahead as there were 13 of us in our party and late July/August is a quiet time in Montserrat. It's definitely worth booking ahead, you wouldn't want to miss a meal here. The restaurant itself is a pleasure to sit in; protected from...any rain but open sided so nice and fresh on hot days. It's decorated with items washed up on the beach; there are some real conversation pieces. We started our meal with drinks on the deck looking out over Little Bay; the ginger beer is some of the best I've ever tasted. The food was freshly prepared and enjoyed by all ages although beware overdoing the hot sauce - it really is very hot as one of our younger diners discovered! The ice creams at the end of the meal; a choice between coconut or nutmeg, were amazing, definitely worth saving room for.More

Stunning little café with great views and brilliant service. We had lunch here after a recommendation and we were not disappointed. Super fresh food - the nicest we found on the island and helpfully open in August (while many other places seem to close). Leave...a little space for ice cream - it was simply delicious! Fresh coconut pieces and a super nutmeg flavour :)More

We ate at Pont's twice on our trip to Montserrat. Once for lunch and another for dinner. We started both meals with John's rum punch - the best I had on Montserrat - you have to have it! Ask for the coconut chips as well....Make sure to make a reservation for dinner, John set my family up on the patio under the stars - it was a fabulous dinner. Not to be missed on Montserrat!More

Wow. This place was beautiful. Excellent food, fresh from the grill and views of the beach from the balcony. A must go-to place if you ever find yourself on the beautiful island of Montserrat. You won't be disappointed.

We took 3 planes to Montserrat anxiously anticipating our return to Ponts. We could hardly wait to once again relax on the deck, sipping our ginger drinks and watching the bright sun slip into the sea while the pelicans nose-dived for dinner. After the sunset,...John set up a table on the deck so we could dine right under the thousands of stars. We enjoyed pumpkin soup, lobster bisque, shrimp and fish cooked with so much flavor. In fact, John had caught the fish himself. But we especially enjoyed John's hospitality. He has so many interesting stories about all the hard work and persistence in starting and operating his restaurant and how it is truly a labor of love. We were fortunate to meet his son who was visiting from England. You must visit Montserrat to spend some memorable time at Ponts!!!!More

This is an amazing place. Sailing for two weeks we washed up ( literally) on the beach after capsizing our dinghy. The staff et al were wonderful. The food lovely and it is in a perfect spot. Could have spent the whole fortnight there.

A fabulous find at the end of the beach. Looking out over the water with a wonderful interior filled with all kinds of nautical found objects. John will look after you and will open for dinner even if there are only four of you. Just...make sure to book ahead. Great food & a marvellous atmosphere.More

I had lunch here yesterday with my sister. We both had the boneless fish with salad and sides. It was fresh and delicious. The service was even better. I can’t recommend this place enough.

For Ponts you need to take the number outside the restaurant and he will open just for you and your guests! It's worth it!! Good luck
