“True taste of the island spirit”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We have just returned from a week in Carriacou and spent a few lunchtimes getting acquainted with the locals at the Hardwood Bar.

What a fantastic little place, right on the water. Joy is a wonderful hostess and the relaxed atmosphere is wonderful. The drinks are cheap and they can't do enough for you.

Boston took us across to Sandy Island in his boat and the locals chatted happily away to us, giving a real insight in to what the island has to offer and how to make the best of it.

Moses, a regular drinker from the UK is also worth speaking to for a bit of inside info on where to go and what to do.

We'll certainly be drinking here again when we next return.

“Great local food”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We stopped there for the last supper before catching our ferry back. For about 20-25EC, we got a full plate of a balanced meal - chicken/fish, potato salad, cassava, pumpkin and rice. It tasted pretty good too! The lady serving us was very nice and agreed to keep our luggage so we could go for a stroll on the beach. However, flies were a bit annoying as they kept coming to the table.

“Great place to chat to the locals”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We've had two one-month stays on the island and this is a regular haunt, either for lunch or a basic supper. Run by an extended and really helpful family, it's a hoot - you'll inevitably end up chatting to everyone in the place and having a laugh. Food is largely local...cheap and cheerful. Right on the fabulous Sunset Beach.

“lovely relaxed spot for lunch”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Sweet service & lovely fresh simple food. They also have a boat so can take you to Sandy island if you like for a small price.
