I fell in love with the Fig Tree, not only for the fresh fish but also because of the owner, gregarious Miss J who knows just about everything going on in Bequia. When I dropped by one afternoon, I found her trimming the hedges and greeting the schoolchildren that passed this informal, waterfront restaurant. (She runs a Saturday-morning children's reading group and is also she can be heard at 8 am every day on “Cruiser's Net,” a VHS marine radio program updating cruisers who found a dinghy, where to purchase sail ties, and whether to expect gale force winds. Friday evening is the best time to stop by, when it's all about Fish Friday, when it's fish served in myriad ways. My favorite spot for dining was outside at one of the brightly-hued picnic tables and watching the boats anchored offshore. And don't miss the chocolate samosa. (I'm a chocoholic and this was intensely chocolatey with a wonderfully flaky crust.)

My wife and I had a meal on a Saturday evening, and although the food was good, the atmosphere was non existent. Cheryl indicated we should have eaten the previous night, Fish Friday !! It was a pity because of the lack of people eating, we were the only ones, made the atmosphere very cold,it certainly seemed an "after the Lord Mayors Show" evening.

We were on Bequia in the Summer. We walked along the walkway to the end and came upon this fab restaurant. You will not find a better place on the island. Go there, eat and relax. It's a jewel on a jewel.

The Fig Tree Restaurant is at the far end of the Belmont Walkway.
And the experience at The Fig Tree is worth every extra step you make to get there

GREAT food , WONDERFUL view , yet it is the charismatic owner that takes this Bequia ,
Belmont Walkway restaurant to a level above most of the other fine eateries on the island.

Cheryl Johnson was born a " people - person ". She is one of those unique individuals
that just makes you feel comfortable , like a member of her family , while eating or drinking
at her Fig Tree Restaurant.
Between the good food and the pleasant atmosphere , you will always leave The Fig Tree
with a smile of satisfaction on your face.

Chicken Rotis is my personal favorite
the side dishes are always awesome !
