We ate at Cathy's based on a recommendation from our hotel and we loved it. Very casual but charming place. Service was slow because they were busy, but you need to be on "island time" wherever you go here (and we got to meet some fellow friendly travelers). We ate the BBQ chicken, ribs, and snapper - all of the food was great! Fish was caught fresh and served whole. Chicken and ribs fell off the bone. We would definitely go back.

Right on the beach, Picnic tables with a palm tree going up through the roof. This is real authentic food. Service is slow but always great jerk chicken and ribs. Love it.

We just had a fantastic meal at Cathy's. Don't go expecting white table cloths or singing waiters but if you want wonderful food on the beach, do not miss this local wonder. Be sure to have a rum punch too.

If you are looking for authentic food on the island, this is the place to go. We had fish, jerk pork, and a multitude of sides. When ordering we asked our server what came with the meal and she said, "a lot". She was definitely correct. The meal was served with a small salad, rice and beans, an assortment of vegetables, and bread. It was way more than we could eat. FYI- my niece ordered the jerk pork and it was very spicy. She loved it but needed several Caribs to kill the burn!
Cathy was there the night we visited and cooked our meal. She and her staff were very friendly and gave us a lesson on the local rums before we left.

I am not a picky person but I had to leave Cathy's. We had heard the food was good so we tried to go there. There was no more seating at the picnic tables outside and it was SO smoky inside from the kitchen I couldn't stand it and I couldn't stay. The menu was very small anyway.
