Went to Firefly for the 3-course Sunday Curry Lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The setting is lovely, very 'plantation Caribbean' style, great views through the palms down the hill to the sea. We had the set 3 course lunch (30US$++pp) including chilled coconut and pineapple soup (unusual but delicious), one chicken and one veggie curry with trimmings, and fruit crumble with ice cream for pud. A La Carte was also available. Cost with two G&Ts and a guava juice 222EC. I imagine the atmosphere would have been better had it been busier (only two other quiet tables eating) but there again if its peace and quiet you're after . . . . . .!

We have just returned from an overpriced lunch with dreadful food and poor service in one of the most beautiful settings imaginable on the island of Bequia. We stopped in this morning to make a 12:00 reservation and were greeted by a delightful young waiter. Since we are staying in a villa, and they grow their own fruits and vegetables on the plantation, I asked if they might be willing to sell me some produce to enjoy while we are here. He was incredibly generous and accommodating, even offering to give us a sampling of the fruits and vegetables they have available and in season. I left with a very good feeling about the place.

We arrived shortly before noon and sat at the bar of a beautiful open-air stone plantation house looking over the grounds with the ocean in the distance. We ordered one drink each, a rum punch and a guava margarita, both of which tasted of nothing but sugar. The bartender/waiter was unfriendly, bordering on rude. He recommended the special of the day which was Creole fish or chicken. I ordered fish, my husband ordered chicken. We only ordered one course and waited 50 minutes for our meal to arrive. The kitchen was overworked and understaffed. I got the chicken, my husband got the fish and it was difficult to differentiate between the two. Both were overcooked, dry and flavourless. The vegetables -- banana salad, breadfruit, plantain, sweet potato and spinach cakes were too many, too ambitious and, like the protein, without flavour.

The bill for one drink and one main course each was $71 US before tip. Outrageously overpriced. Disappointing since the setting is probably one of the nicest on the island.

We had a romantic authentic Caribbean dinner in a dream setting. The restaurant is open-air in a stone building from the original plantation. I couldn't imagine a more picturesque setting for a night out on the island.

We did not stay here but stopped in for lunch one day. The bartender was wonderful and, even though we were not guests of the hotel, made us feel very welcome. I had a horrible sunburn and the bartender went and chopped me some fresh Aloe and literally saved our vacation! It was such a thoughtful gesture and much appreciated. Sometimes all it takes is a good bartender to bring you back again and again. The lunch was delicious, we had the fish roti. The property is magnificant and in a wonderful location. We have been coming to Bequia 25 years and we will definately come back to Firefly.

My husbands grandparents built this hotel and restaurant on the site of the former plantation house of Spring Estate in the 1960's. It has changed hands a few time since then, and is now run Liz and the Firefly group. The food is delicious and most of the vegetables and fruits are grown on Spring itself. The staff is professional, personable, and extremely courteous. They make magnificent drinks, too! Open-air dining is lovely, whether during the heat of the day or a cool evening. The atmosphere is relaxed and guests can enjoy the cats and dogs that belong to the place. Try Firefly, you won't regret it.
