“Goat Water!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Stopped here on a Friday after a morning of diving for goat water and roti. The goat water was very good, rich and brown, allspice and clove, with crunchy bread to dip in it, the roti was tasty as well. The place is small but nice and we the owner, John (?) stopped to visit and share some information about Montserrat. He did a pretty good impression of a mountain chicken (an endangered frog), too!

It is next door to Hilltop Cafe, which you should also make a stop or 2 or 3 at.

“Perfect little bar”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

In truth its no more than a hut my the side of the road, but the owner, clientèle and ice cold beer make it a perfect place to stop by on the way back from the north. Easily recommended.

“A Fun and Welcoming Atmosphere for All!!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We did not know what to expect of this tiny blue shack like building with 4 or 5 plastic tables. Glad we followed the reviews and ventured inside. We were welcomed like friends by John the owner who has a loud laugh and enjoys sharing stories and spending time with his guests. He seems to know everyone on the island as many people who drive by honk and wave.
John kept our bellies full with roti, fish, tasty vegetables and on Friday, pizza and coconut pie. He kept our glasses flowing with rum and coconut water and rum and coke. He delighted our children by using his machete to chop sugar cane from his garden for them to chew. We really enjoyed our time at People's Place!.
We highly recommend People's Place as a great time for all!

“Good Food, Good People”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

A real island experience. Excellent food with great people, both local and visitors. A real example of the charm of Montserrat. It's like a small town, you get to know people; and The People's Place is where to do it. Great food in a relaxed atmosphere.

“Great food and great company!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

John the owner is one of a kind. He is so personable and easy to love. "Do it once, Do it right" is his motto. We had a couple of really great meals followed by drinks and good company. John even gave us a ride back to our house after dinner one night. The locals frequent this place so it's a great place to meet people that know the island and to get tips and hints on what to do and where to go.
