This restaurant is owned and run by Fernando. He is a fisherman, and it is rumored he catches the evening's dinner during the morning. I have never had a bad meal here and the prices are reasonable. The waitstaff is excellent. It is generally a one-seating dinner for all. Not a big space, but hidden up in the trees. My... More

This was a welcome stop with friendly and speedy service to partake of a refreshing drink during our time at the beach

This was a wonderful restaurant!! The waitstaff was friendly and very fast!! The chef came and talked to us about his food sourcing and the fish. The ambience is romantic. And we met most of the other guests in this tiny treasure of a restaurant.

We've returned to Fernandos several times each trip for some of the best food on Bequia. Home style local fish or meat prepared by 'Nando, served with a smile by the ladies on a lovely candle lit terrace. We'll go back next year to dine among friends.

Wonderful, enchanted snapper dinner at Nando's. Beautiful setting in the trees above the beach. Watched Nando bring his catch of snapper in that morning. What more can you ask!

Fernando's is a genuinely real Caribbean experience. Loved the snapper , loved the vibe and the loo is worth a visit for comments and cards too : )

Well prepared local fare, with a limited menu. We had a choice of red snapper (the fish is caught in the morning be Fernando) or lamb chops, served with a variety of sides (potatoes, plantains, squash, greens). The restaurant is very small, set on a deck up above Lower Bay. Dinner is not a rushed affair. Enjoy a relaxed and... More

This is such a quaint place. Hidden on the upper slopes of Lower Beach (the taxis know where it is - I would imagine slightly tricky to find if you are self driving). We went for dinner having booked a couple of days prior. This is not a gourmet "restaurant" but instead they serve honest local food nicely presented. There... More

We have been dinning at Fernando's for many years. This trip we only ate at Fernando's once (unfortunately). The food is always fantastic, with so many different flavours being presented on each plate. Nando's fish is not to be missed, nor are his desserts! A family business at its best!
