Though we made reservations, it was a quiet Monday night after the football game. Dinner was on the terrace overlooking Admiralty Bay. The candle-lit table set apart from the few other guests made it feel a bit more romantic than other restaurants we'd eaten at.

We were welcomed by Rose and chose drinks from the bar menu. My partner tried the banana colada that's been spoken about in other reviews. Creamy, delicious and deceptive. It would be easy to keep ordering these.

A limited menu keeps things simple and choosing dinner did not take long. We both chose the battered fish and chips, the fish being fresh Kingfish. The kitchen was quick and the meal arrived not long after we had a bit of nicely done garlic bread, covered in a shredded cheese.

A salad of cucumber, lettuce, onion and tomato dressed in a light oil vinaigrette accompanied the main course. The curry aioli added a nice touch and was very flavourful.

We finished dinner by sharing with a slice of fresh coconut cheesecake (made on the premises) and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

All in all, dinner at Papa's was well worth the drive from Bequia Beach hotel.

6 of us had a meal a couple of evenings ago at papas based on a local recommendation.
The first inkling that things were going to go downhill were when we were told that they had run out of food menus.after a wait for some drinks we managed to order food....one salad starter and 6 mains. After 1 hour and a reminder the starter arrived. After a further half hour the mains came.
The batter on the fish and chips was a soggy mess. It would have been nice to get fresh frites but oven chips seemed to be on that day. The tuna on the salad was a little gamey?
Altogether a very average performance, but not average prices.
If you are desperate to go I suggest you order the day before to make sure your food arrives
Before you pass with hunger.

To date this was our best dinner on Bequia. Beautiful setting. Excellent service and food at prices that seem to be somewhat standard everywhere here.

We arrived just at sunset and were the only diners most of our meal, so maybe service drops off when it is crowded, but we could not have asked for better service. Our cocktails were prompt and tasty. The house white tasted like wine. The barracuda was properly grilled. Easy to understand why quite a few reviewers say this is their favorite place on the island.

We were in Bequia in late September, early October 2013 as well as the early fall in 2012. we visited Papa's Bar a few times for dinner and drinks. The lobster is excellent!! thanks again to Wendy, their great cook. The service is by far over and above other places in town. A big thanks from us to the owner and Beth for saving the day for us on our last night in Bequia! Although our evening didn't turn out the way we had planned' the dinner was superb and really want to thank Beth for going out of her way to assist. You're the best.

Appreciate your help.
