In 1995 we visited the Shell Museum on our honeymoon and wanted to come back to visit. We found Egberth, owner and musician who we had met all those years ago. He took us over to the Cruzin Bar & Grill where his son and daughter-in-law treated us to the best jerk chicken we've ever had. But while we waited... More

We had stopped to see the 'Shell Museum' (meh) and spotted this place. We had been looking for somewhere to eat with local flavor. This was it! We were in BVI during the slow season and weren't even sure they were open, but the owner came out and invited us in. We had an amazing meal! Bread fruit fries started... More

We saw a Fish Fry sign and pulled in for an early dinner on a recent Friday. The owner/hostess/waitress was a delight. Kind, informative and generous. As we waited for our meals to be prepared she walked us around the property and explained the various plants, fruits, vegtables, etc. She prepared breadfruit fries just so we "could try them" 3/6...

The new owners of Cruzin' have made it a point to use local ingredients prepared with their own special touches. Everything is done from scratch and use native ingredients such as papaya, coconut, and soursop that grow on property as well as local fish fresh from the fishing landing across the street. On a recent trip we had the pleasure... More

My wife and I have visited Tortola more times than I can remember. Our dinner the other night at Cruzin' in Carrot Bay was probably one of our best restaurant experiences. Recently reopened by local couple, Andre and Kesha Donovan, the menu consisted of local fare wonderfully prepared. Well worth the visit to the North Shore.

We were staying nearby and wanted a change from the usual tourist restaurants. We enjoyed a delicious meal with local homegrown produce and were made really welcome. I think the current proprietors have just taken over the cafe / restaurant. We enjoyed the jerk chicken with passion fruit and papaya and the red velvet cheesecake. Reasonably priced too.

Was great, sadly now closed. A cosy outdoor place with a nice mix of clientele. It was made special by the amazing manager, Jean. She and Cruzin' will be missed.

Lovely place to spend an evening eating lobster and having a nice wine. However, it's nestled amongst the trees and bushes on the land side of the road and the mozzies are everywhere!

We've been to this friendly beautiful place on two trips to Tortola now. The setting is informal, friendly and idyllic. Food is lovely and cooked to order with a smile (roti - wow!). We enjoyed listening to a bunch of happy locals discuss local and world politics. Smart, funny and caring people. This place exemplifies why we love Tortola -... More

MUST eat here as many times as possible. The food is always extremely fresh, prepared for love and served with a smile. Outdoor eating, only. May require bug spray. A guaranteed good meal!

Welcome to the new Cruzins Bar and Grill. Under new management since Spring 2016, Owner Chefs Andre, the Grillmaster and Kiesha Donovan offer local fresh foods island style prepared and cooked for your delight. Our fish is selected fresh off the local fishing boats each day including Bull-Hind, much like trout, Yellowtail, much like snapper, Hard-nosed fish from the family of blue runner fish and of course lobster, fresh caught the day you enjoy it. Out fish dinners are grilled in foil with onions, garlic, peppers and butter and our own jerk seasoning. Try our BBQ Chicken and Ribs are in a league of their own. Finger licking good with savory meats that fall off the bones served with French Frys that never tasted so good. Cruzins Bar and Grill; local food never tasted so good.
