Our server was such a happy, positive girl no... More

Ate here two nights when staying in Castara. Delicious food and friendly service with added bonus of BYO alcohol. This open-sided restaurant is right on the beach and we loved dining with the sound of the waves. Unspoilt Caribbean with no shoes and no news. We loved this place!

We really enjoyed our meal here. There was one starter on offer-chicken wings-which were really tasty and had lots of meat on them. My husband ordered pineapple pork for his main with wedges, I had leg of lamb with fries and we shared chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was delicious and the portions were generous. There is also the added... More

Throughout our stay in Castara we didn't have a bad meal but have to say this was our best one. Superb food and lovely, friendly service. Take your own beers or just pop to the local shop. We got the last table so I would suggest popping in to book.

Possibly the best place to eat in Castara. They serve great-tasting and authentic food with an exiting twist (for example tangerine chicken or pineapple pork). I'd definitely recommend to anyone staying in Castara looking for a nice place to eat.

If you're hungry and the restaurant is full, I suggest going elsewhere. The food is good and the prices are ok but when we were there, the restaurant was full and we were the last 2 customers so we had to wait 2 hours to get our food.

Hi Framptonxx, we clearly remember you guys. You guys were our last couple on an extremely busy Monday night. We did mention there will be a long wait because we had a full house that night. Not to mention everyone came practically the same time. We certainly remember you guys agreed to stay and wait. Sorry if you were dissapointed... More

This is right next to the Naturalist, in Castara. They offered about 4-6 protein options with the same sides, which is a lot of variety compared to some of the other restaurants there. Food was very good. Service was really fun and light hearted as opposed to other restaurants on the island in general. We really loved eating here and... More

This place is just behind the beach facility on the big bay. We ate here 3 times in a 2 week trip and enjoyed it each time. We ate spicy chicken wings, prawns, goat curry, tangerine chicken. All of it was well cooked with a great selection of vegetable accompaniments. The restaurant has no licence so take your own booze.... More

A charmingly decorated restaurant on Castara bay (North end). Great place to watch the sunset. Simple but very tasty food. Don't forget to bring your own drink though- they do not sell alcohol - available from the supermarket just over the bridge.
