The best I can say about Ballahoo is that if you're hungry it's convenient to cruisers walking out of Port Zante. Nothing memorable about the food, service was somewhat slow and disappointing compared to the friendly service we've encountered in Frigate Bay. Sit at a table overlooking The Circus and at least you can people watch while waiting for your... More

They hardly had anything that was listed on their menu..I do understand that there was a high traffic because of the music festival happening, but come on they should have foreseen it coming and have proper supplies on hand.. It was so annoying that half the stuff we choose were not available. The waitresses need to step their game up... More

Ate here with family of five for lunch. Service was good and drinks (ballihootini and mojito) were very good. My non adventurous part of the family had a chicken sandwich, chicken fingers and a hamburger which were fine. Conch fritters were fantastic and the grilled snapper was awesome as well. Their homemade lemonade was outstanding too. Most tables overlook the... More

We had lunch there and were quite disappointed. After reading a review of the newly reopened Ballyhoo we were anticipating a fine cuisine with friendly staff. I think the staff were friendlier than the food. The burger was cooked to death and the chicken sandwich was about the same. We will not be going back there.

My gf and I stopped here for lunch after spending the day at the beach. The beer was ice cold. The highlight of our lunch was the conch chowder served in a pastry puff bowl.The chowder was absolutely delicious, chunks of conch with vegetables. The wait staff were very friendly and courteous. Would definitely eat here for a second visit.

We came upon this while walking the old town. Staff was great, but food was just ok. Nothing to rave about and not that cheap either.

Our taxi driver said this is where he eats and it did have a lot of locals, but smart tourist too! We had some local conche and lobster. Wonderful. Great service too and the prices, not too high.

We stopped here for a quick drink on a hot day, and then decided to give the calamari a try. It was absolutely divine! What a find. Fun to sit and listen to the locals gossip. There were a few other tourists, but it was a nice mix of people who hang there regularly, some business people, and outsiders. Nice... More

Recently visited this restaurant on the island of St. Kitts. Entrance at the side, go upstairs to restaurant. Open air, but with a roof. Sat at front on the balcony overlooking the Circus, which is a square with a clock tower in the middle, which acts as a roundabout for the traffic. Watching the traffic was an interesting pastime in... More
