In Little Harbor, Harris' Place is one of three places are tucked away from the crowds. While I can't compare it to the other two, as we only ate here, we enjoyed ourselves. Dinner was wonderful, if a bit expensive. I don't believe Cynthia was there, but the two women we dealt with were very nice. Unlike other's experience, no... More

How often does the owner of a restaurant come out to help tie up your dinghy. The welcome from Cynthia was fabulous, the food more so. After a noisy night at Cane Garden Bay we wanted some peace and quiet, we found it in Little Harbour. We also found our best meal in the BVIs. Home cooked lobster bisque exquisitely... More

Upon pulling into Little Harbour we didn't even have the mooring ball attached and Cynthia was out to collect the ball fee. All attention was given to catching the ball but Cynthia wanted her money. Once we were attached she proceeded to be rude to us once she learned we were dining at Sydneys. We were on a charter thru... More

We had reservations @ Sydney's (which we like), but a flotilla decended into Little Harbour, & Cynthia aka Nikea, was gracious enough to stay open to serve us. Food: top notch (3 of 5 of us had the grouper...I have never tasted better. Nikea waited, engaged, story told, served drinks, cooked, and also waited on other bar patrons. I know... More

Dined at Harris' Place August 19th, 2016. Magically caught Cynthia between summer vacation and seasonal shut down. Service was great, meal was great: Lobster Brisk, Garlic Bread, Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing, Lobster, Beans & Rice, plus desert. Be careful when ordering lobster, the quality and preparation will be great. The size determines dinner cost which ranges from $35... More

Having been to both Harris' and Sidney's over the years I definitely preferred Harris'. Lobster was huge and amazing and every side dish was fantastic from the lobster bisque to the bread to the veggies. Only knock is it is slow, we were there almost 2 hours before we got our main course. It was fantastic but by that time... More

Enjoyed some quiet drinks in the shade of their restaurant/bar while visiting While Bay. Needed to get away from the crowds next door. Great service, Friendly, Professional and worth a stop.

Our five course meal was great.The bar-b-que and grilled fish- with the personal touch of Cynthia-could not have been better. We ended up in Little Harbor by default as there were no mooring balls available but here. Will make it a scheduled stop from now on. Cynthia is a jewel.Best kept secret on Jost Van Dyke.

Interesting history of Harris' Place; pulled into harbor at Jost Van Dyke and after meeting Cynthia the owner of the restaurant we decided to eat at her place. What a great choice! Food was fantastic..we had a party of five and ordered lobster, conch, grouper and the BBQ special. Best lobster ever, was so tender. Also phenomenal drinks. Cynthia puts... More
