“Best ever!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

It has been a while since I went to Mrs. Johnson's fig tree. We went there last christmas and I just did not make it to write a review about this amazing place. For sure it was one of the highlights during our caribbean island trip. The food is awesome and the best things ever are the fresh juices. This was the only place, where we could have fresh pressed exotic fruit juices!
Beyond the good food, Mrs. Johnson is such a lovely person! She welcomed every guest personally. Go and enjoy dinner there!

“A Must Visit for Atmosphere + Food”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

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.)

“Disappointing”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

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.

“THE END IS JUST THE START!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

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.
