Outdoor venue, with friendly chatty customers, but our waitress disappeared frequently. Food was mediocre. On the expensive side for regular food.

Menu is not thy extensive but if you are a meat lover you will find something for yourself. Chicken ($13) and pork (10$) are very good and this is why we came back to eat there. Prices are like everywhere else . Would be great if they could do something else than other places around because each of them does the same veg and rice. Eating the same food for 2 weeks gets pretty sad. Different variety of veg or rice would be appreciated.
We also ordered coconut cake which is $4. The portion was of 2 bites , much smaller and twice more expensive as in Europe , I raised my concern with a lady who asked me how my meal was but , apparently, she couldn’t do anything about it. Why asking then? I would come back to eat it everyday because it was delicious but not for this price and its amount. Just because it’s touristic place and just because tourist come from richer countries, they should not be scammed. You have just lost everyday customers. Other than that, Service is good, waitresses are attentive.

It was a busy night when we got there and for a good reason, the food was delicious. Our server was just ok. A young girl that had to run up and down a lot of difficult stairs. God Bless her for even attempting it. On her defense, we had nine people that like to drink a lot. The food was delivered in a timely fashion and it was superb. I wouldn't hesitate when making a decision where to eat. Enjoy for all of us. Can't wait to go back.

We visited Best in the West several times during our one-week stay and it is amazing. The jerk chicken is absolutely mouth watering and tender! It was my favorite meal...better than the higher end meals we had! You can get it to go and sit on the beach, or eat there. It is a local favorite and that should tell you something!
