“The only place to eat & drink at the airport. Simple, handy café. Nice place to see the little planes landing!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Our regional flight from the E.T. Joshua Airport in Arnos Vale was at 3:15pm so we were at the airport by 1:30pm and in need of a light lunch before boarding. We checked in and went upstairs to inspect their food & refreshment offerings.

It's just one flight of stairs up to the restaurant. Just before the entrance there's a little sitting/lounge area where we saw tourists just chilling with a cigarette while awaiting their flight.

The restaurant & bar itself is pretty simple and understated. It is however bright and airy. Constant breezes keep it cool and it's nice to be able to look out the windows to the runway, hence it's name (Lookout!).

It's lovely to see the small planes taking off and landing. There are few places where one still has this sort of freedom and enjoyment to take photos freely and watch the planes just some yards in front of you without being under the glare and scrutiny of fellow passengers or paranoid airport employees.

There is more than sufficient table seating and some stools placed at the counter / bar area.
The place seems to be popular with the airport's customs & immigration officers! No doubt this place is their most convenient stop (or probably only place!) for lunch.

The food offerings were simple --- sandwiches, snacks, wraps and so forth, but there was alot to choose from. Good selection of ice-cold alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages! A nice place to enjoy one last Hairoun (St. Vincent's local beer)!

We had a chicken roti and a beef patti which were served hot at our table and were quite tasty.
The girls serving at the counter were so friendly and helpful and all smiles. They provide personal and happy service!

We then headed inside through security, expecting that there would have been a bar or café in the waiting lounge but there was no such convenience. So our advice would be to have your fill of food and drink at Lookout before heading inside to await boarding, as there is no other option for passengers once you pass emigration and security.

Lookout provided us with a perfect and pleasant closure to our St. Vincent trip!
