“lovely location - slightly stern staff”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Lovely location and the food was good, the lady who staffed it when we went on two occasions was 'straight talking' - to the point she challenged customers on a few occasions. She added to our meal without checking first and then appeared unhappy when we explained we couldn't eat what she had chosen to add (we are vegan). It felt like a 'telling off' and to the extent we actually thought twice about going again (I am very able to assert myself - so this is not due to shyness!). So - go, enjoy the location, and if all goes well you will have a good experience, just be prepared to not necessarily have the best customer service!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

Make sure you find this place hidden away on the beach not far from the ferry terminal. Lovely, friendly atmosphere with good bar and simple freshly cooked food.

“Food good, beach a let down”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Had a day in Carriacou mostly at Sandy Island which we reached from the Hard Wood cafe on Paradise Beach. On the basis of reviews we decided not to eat there and go to La Playa afterwards as there was beach etc. there were we could relax afterwards. It was a bit of a disappointment, the food was good but was let down by the surroundings, we realised it was pretty close in to Hillsboro but did not appreciate the effect of this.
The beach was covered in broken glass and rubbish left behind by a rainwater drain off channel, so all in all not very appetising and wished we had stayed where we were.

“Good fish bites”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

This is another good spot for a cold beer, a snack or a meal. Great location right on the edge of town.

“Great view with lunch and dinner”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We loved the potato wedges and both the fish burger and playa burger were great. Wonderful view! We liked everything!
