Great Lunch Spot Overlooking The Town Square

Great spot for lunch or an afternoon drink while watching the activity in the town square. We ordered the jerk chicken wrap and a feta/watermelon salad and both were extraordinary. The jerk is very spicy but it had excellent flavor. The salad was great as well. Give it a try.

We had time to have lunch at Ballahoo on our way to the airport. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very clean. We both had the grouper sandwich which was fresh and delicious. Their drinks are tasty. There is a view over the court in the center of the city. Prices were very reasonable. It was... More

Had lunch at this great second story restaurant located on the Circus in downtown Basetere. Cannot say enough about the quality of the food and service. The chicken rotinwrap was particularly delicious. Try to get an outside seat to be able to take in the street scene.

Ballaoo has a lovely location overlooking the Circus in Basseterre, St Kitts. We had a table at the front and wondered why we were the only customers on Friday night. The food was good but very overpriced. So much so we complained when the bill was presented and managed to get some discount. Even so it spoiled what could have... More

We first went to Ballahoo because a local jeweler recommended it for breakfast. Awesome selection and great Bloody Mary's. Friendly, smiling staff. We went for lunch today and enjoyed the whole fried fish, conch chowder, and chicken roti. Fabuloso! They only serve dinner Thursday, Friday, Saturday so we're headed there before we leave. And, oh yes...the street view is great.

We stopped here for drinks and lunch after walking around Basseterre. Our party ordered chicken fingers, hamburger, and chicken wings. All orders came with fries. Though the food was good, we found the portions to be small. There is free wifi, but you have to get the password from your waitress, and it may take awhile to get your password.... More

Stopped in for drinks at an off hour and enjoyed our table overlooking the Circus. The menu had many interesting looking options - would have enjoyed a meal here at a different time. Friendly and helpful service. Up a flight of stairs.

We stopped for lunch and had a very nice time. Located above the street and we were lucky to get a street view table. The fish was very nice and the cheeseburger was good also. I thought the best thing was the conch fritters. I have had them a couple other places as well but here was the best to... More

The location of the restaurant, overlooking the Circus in the center of town, remains perfect (having moved from their original location across the street many years ago). Unfortunately, the food is not what it once was... An appetizer of conch fritters (once the highpoint of the kitchen) was leaden - 4 much smaller fritters than in past years for USD10... More
