Description: Whatever you do, don’t leave Buzz till your last night. Besides their à la carte menu they have nightly specials. Buzz has been operating for 12 years and Pat Bowden and Chef Marie who have worked together for 37 years have been successful in all their restaurants. Pat has created a restaurant and bar with a warm ambience, friendly atmosphere and lots of charm. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and as the name implies, is abuzz with activity. Food is presented on dishes in varying shapes, sizes and colours. Buzz is known for Seafood; Fresh Tuna, Potato Crusted Snapper, Baked Mahi Mahi filled with Avocado and Shrimp, Swordfish and a variety of Shrimp, Scallop & Lobster dishes (in season). House specialities include Homemade Raviolis, Lamb Shanks, West Indian Pepperpot, Rack of Lamb & Black Angus Beef hand trimmed and served with a variety of sauces. Homemade Desserts include a Trio of Crème Brûlée, Warm Apple Crêpes, Chocolate Mousse and Banana Pecan Bread Pudding. Mervin the Bartender will whip up fun cocktails like our “famous” Mango Dacquiri, Buzzing Bee Stinger and Buzz Cooler. Not only does Mervin keep the guests amused with his “chat”, he also keeps the children amused with his “card tricks.”

“Excellent food quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

The food was excellent except the "world famous cheese garlic bread" was average at best. The Seared tuna was wonderful. Pepper pot was very good. The Trio Creme Brûlée with passion fruit and chocolate types was very tasty. Best food we have had on the island.

A warm friendly welcome awaits you here. We loved the spicy local dishes we ate here and went back for more, especially the pepperpot stew.

“Mediocre food in a pleasant setting...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Very friendly staff and owner who were very pleasant indeed however food was nowhere near Spinnakers standards and if anything slightly pretentious. Six of us for evening meal for our daughters 15th birthday. The staff did get her a balloon, which was very sweet but i think we had been spoilt by our visits to Spinnakers already. Very kind staff, however mediocre food, long waits between courses and lots of stray cats roaming around (which freaked one of the kids out). Would i go back...No probably not as bill was very expensive also.

**Visit was Aug 2012 although it doesn't give me that option on the dropdown

“Beautifully cooked fresh fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Beautifully grilled Mahi Mahi (or Dorado) in a delicious Creole sauce. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Staff were incredibly friendly (Mervin, the bar man and Jackie both stand out). Thank you for an incredibly lovely time!
