We live in the Virgin Islands and boat around the B.V.I's often. We were close to Jost for my daughters Birthday and decided to make a reservation. The island atmosphere doesn't bother me with T-shirts & graffiti throughout. We took our seats at the table, the only patrons in the restaurant, to have the "waitress" throw an open journal on the table and tell us to write our orders down while she sat down with the other employee, on her phone, three tables away. Any answers to menu questions were shouted from their position there after being informed it would take at least 45 minutes for our order. My girlfriend then had to take the journal to them. Service, what service? Honor bar very limited, food only so so. No offers of desert and basically rushed out so they could close. Should have gone next door to Harris's which at least had some customers. Apparently, they knew better then us! Needless to say we won't go back, many other great restaurants around! Avoid!

Sidney's Peace and Love was a surprisingly good alternative to the more popular Foxy's for lunch. As we came up to the dock, Kim from one of the little shops greeted us and helped us dock. She was a great ambassador for Sidney's. After a couple of Caribs at the honor bar we had a nice lunch of Lobster Salad and cole slaw - both delicious from a secret recipe. Worth stopping, eating and shopping there!

Loved the atmosphere... writing all over the walls and Tshirts hanging from the ceiling. Especially loved the "honor bar". What an authentic experience. The people who worked there were SO nice and friendly! Sadly the lobster was not so great... at $50 per person we were underwhelmed. I wanted to love it but it was tough and bitter:( I would go back but order something else!

Strawberry was wonderful and immediately made us feel at home. The power was out but Strawberry and her staff managed just fine. There was plenty of room for eight of us and even with the power out, our lobster was amzing! The honor bar was dangerous - when you're not writing down prices, you're not worried about how many drinks you have :-) All in all, a great, but different style restaurant. We had to get a T-shirt!

When you are out boating the Virgin Islands, plot a course for Sidney's Peace and Love. Recently visited here with my brother. Honor bar system (make your own drinks) and they will make vegetarian food and accommodate vegans. We requested vegan meals and they prepared Caribbean Rice and Beans, Salad, Stewed Carrots and Onions. It was good food.
Family run business, everyone is very friendly, they also have a t-shirt shop.
