“Airport Branch Rocks”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Best airport food in the Caribbean and great staff! Full service restaurant at the airport with a wide variety of dishes. Try the wraps they are awesome. Ask about the daily special, you may be lucky to catch a local dish such as pepperpot or dumplings and saltfish

Great place and good value for money to avoid the mayhem of VC Bird terminal in the evening.

Comfortable, value for money lounge with adequate snacks and drinks.

“Friendly Staff good food”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

It's an Airport restaurant, but it's good and the staff is always friendly. It's not chain food. You will need a little time and don't get upset if the food is slow the kitchen is a little small. Ask what the local special is, it will be local food. If you are afraid of local food everthing else is good. Make sure to ask for cripsy fries or they might rush them and come out a little too fast.
All the usual suspects are available for drinking. The atmosphere was better before they reconfigured the airport. Hopefully they will have a better place at the new airport building.
Just to summerize, it's good food as airports go.
