Miss Vie is the heart and soul of this little place. Great place to grab a simple bit while snorkeling haulover. Miss also has a beach you can access for a very nominal fee. She no longer serves fried food, so I miss having a patty. Her beans are rice are yummy and you cannot beat the price. Grab a... More

This place is unique to say the least. Vie does all of the cooking and everything is homemade. You have a choice of rice and beans, rice and beans with meatsauce or hotdogs. The rice and beans are great and Vie is a really sweet lady. Do yourself the favor and pay the $2.50 to go to the beach across... More

Vie's is a must-do! Her rice and beans with cold beer is an amazing experience. She charges $2.50 to access the private beach, but there are free chairs, a changing room, bathroom, and water spigots to rinse off. The beach is gorgeous and quiet and restful.

Last time we stayed on St John we found Vie's and had her chicken and Johnny Cakes. This visit, she told us she was now cooking 'healthy', no more fried food--good for her! We shared an ample order of meat chilli and a coconut and a pineapple tart. Great crust. For a small additional fee you can use her beach... More

Others granting 5 stars have done a fine job describing Vie's, so I'll limit my remarks to some info that you might not glean from other reviews: 1. Her dessert offerings today included not only coconut tarts, but also pineapple tarts. Forget the diet! 2. If you are considering using her beach, Vie also has a freshwater hose available for...

Vie changed her menu this year. Said she was tired of frying food after all the years she has been there. Now she makes an excellent West Indies dish with rice and beans and still has lots of travelers stopping by to eat. Outdoor tables for eating. She also has a private beach that you can access for a small... More

Vie's menu varies, but the rice, black beans and meat sauce was fantastic. It was so good our vegetarian daughter was willing to have more than her share if it. The coconut tarts were tasty as well. Worth the trip up the East End road.
