“Cynthia makes it an experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

I went back for my 2nd time and Cynthia made everything a great experience. It's just so much fun eating with her as the hostess. And she makes a best bushwackers too....actually she mades many many of them. Go there towards the end of your trip to a real good time eating great food with toes in the sand.

“Such fun!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

We were sailing around the BVI and stopped at Little Bay on a whim, and thank goodness we did! Harris' place is awesome. Cynthia is a fantastic host, the food is fresh and thoughtful, the cocktails are awesome, and we had such fun!! I'd definitely recommend her place to anyone lucky enough to stop in this spectacular little bay.

“Harris' Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We try to make Miss Cynthia's place a stop on our agenda each time we are sailing in the BVI's. We did just that last week. We pulled our 40 foot catamaran up to her dock and used her shore power as well. We had a fabulous dinner. The lobster bisque and garlic bread are to die for. I had the stewed conch with coleslaw and peas and rice as well. Coleslaw is amazing! Others in our group had the lobster and the grilled mahi mahi! They all came with the soup, coleslaw, peas and rice or baked potatoe. Miss Cynthia has the personality and smile that just keeps us coming back year after year! The vibe is that of authentic, local caribbean dining and not the tourist attractions that are found on some of the other islands of the BVI's. If you like your toes in the sand and hearing the water lapping on the shore with twinkling white lights on the dock for ambiance then this is the place for you! Can't wait to get back and see Miss Cynthia's beaming smile again!

“Awesome Woman!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

We were met by two skiffs when we arrived at Little harbor, one from Harris' Place and one from Sidney's. Cynthia won us over with her big personality and her snorkeling advice! We had dinner at Harris' Place with Cynthia and it was my favorite meal we had the whole time we were in the BVI! The lobster, grouper, salad, beans and rice, cole slaw, garlic bread, and coconut pie was all excellent! Cynthia is a very strong, hard-working woman and should be very proud of her service and business.

“Who'd have thought...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

OK, so we pull into Little Harbor and there are only 4 different establishments. We had made reservations here and we were all set and ready to go when we got there. We were met by Cynthia who has enough personality for 4 people! She made our meal really enjoyable and what a meal it was. Sweet, moist well prepared lobster…ummmm! Make sure you try the slaw, best we ever had. This restaurant was worth the overnight. Don’t forget to go next door to Sydney’s Peace and Love for the T-shirts!
