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.”

“Great food..service okay.”
Reviewed February 17, 2010

The food was very good. There was six of us and we all enjoyed it. The service was average and typical of the islands. We recommend going there.

“Great food, terrific service and personal approach”
Reviewed January 28, 2010

We ate here on two separate occasions on a recent visit to St Lucia. The menu is very balanced, the wine list good and we were particularly impressed by the level of personal attention extended to us - we were made to feel that our experience of The Buzz should be absolutely brilliant. There is a lovely atmosphere, the food was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the Buzz!

“great ambiance, great food, exceptional service”
Reviewed January 10, 2010

went to buzz for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. Possibly the best meal we have had in St Lucia this trip. The food was simple but well cooked and well presented and lots of choice with amazing. My wife had lobster thermidor which was delicious, the steak was melt in the mouth delicious and the starters fantastic. The place was busy, but the service exceptional - everyone was made to feel very special. The owner Pat was friendly and great fun. Would suggest arriving early to have a drink at the bar before you dine.

“Terrrible service and the owner was the worst”
Reviewed December 26, 2009

We arrived for our 8:00pm reservation at 7:55pm. No one took a drink order until 8:15 and then it took 30 minutes to even get the drinks. Starters did not come out until after 9:15. Main courses did not arrive until 9:45 and one was served 10 minutes later. The owner lied about how long the mains would take. At the end of the meal when we approached the owner (other staff were approaced numerous times) she simiply said that service was so bad that she wanted to avoid us. No apology. No offer of drinks, desert anything. This takes the cake for the worst service we have had in over a decade.
