“Wonderful local food served lovingly by lovely people”
Reviewed May 15, 2011

'The Fig Tree is THE place on the Walkway where you go to eat if you want to feel at home, with superb local cuisine, made daily from fresh local ingredients, and beautifully presented. I found it while walking down to the beach, dropped in for a coffee and immediately felt like I was part of the Bequia family. Run by Cheryl Johnson, who also runs the Bookshop and the Sweety Bird Café, it is a place of real friendliness and warmth. The food is really authentic Creole, and the staff are a joy - they always remember your name, and you soon get to know them. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner watching the sun go down over one of the most breathtaking views of the island, it's worth tracking down to enjoy a family atmosphere and great food. It's right at the end of the Walkway, so you can wander along, looking at the boats and the shops, and then 'come home' to the Fig Tree.'

“The Fig Tree is a home away from home”
Reviewed May 11, 2011

I love the Fig Tree and Cheryl Johnson. While on Bequia for 7 months we ate at Fig Tree daily and volunteered at Miss Johnson's "Reading Club " which is held Saturday afternoon for the children of Bequia - and visiting children too. The grill food at Fig Tree is amazing - as are the Roti's and fish dishes. They have free Wi-Fi there. I've been home for 7 days and have dreamed of Bequia every night......

“Local Gem with spectacular ocean & sunset views”
Reviewed May 9, 2011

The Fig Tree was recently opened in 2011 by St Vincentian woman and scholar, Cheryl.
Not only does the restaurant offer deliciously prepared local cuisine but the alfresco setting looking across the bay westward are specular especially during sunset. The wait staff are friendly and accommodating, remembering your name upon return visits, and the food is lovingly prepared from a fresh daily menu artfully displayed on a colored chalkboard.
The restaurant also hosts interesting free community events promoting the arts and history education. Saturday afternoon the Fig Tree becomes a weekly reading club for children of all ages.
If your are looking for good food, great views and a genuine local cultural experience then be sure to visit the Fig Tree.

“Trying very hard”
Reviewed May 6, 2011

Recently opened and at the end of the walkway, the food was good, the service outstanding.
They are trying very hard but they are not easily visible from the land.
