We had lunch here in Kingstown, St Vincent and waited almost 2 hours for the meal to come. The place is dark and was not at all busy, only 2 tables of locals having lunch and this on a Saturday. The waiting staff made us most unwelcome but we sat it out. Food average. Don't go unless you have time... More

If you are on Mustique you have got to give it a try. We only had a drink there but the food looked great. Sitting on wooden decking over the sea with the gentle waves splashing up through the boards. The views are great and the atmosphere electric.

We decided to try this place based on other reviews but no thank you. Dark, completely empty and not very nice food. We left as fast as we could!

Basil is a real gentleman and his vision, and focus on educational programs for the Island's children through an annual blues festival is to be commended. The location of his bar is a grant place to watch a sunset, meet friends for a drink, or if you are new to the Island, he will make you feel at home.

I liked their hospitality and service. Its moderately reasonable. I heard they have 1 buffet service and looking forward to join one day as the buffet you will get only one day per week.

One of the pricier but nice restaurants in town area. The food and drinks were good with friendly staff. Nice ambiance set in an old historical cobblestone building.

Food is always great here. Restaurant is set in an old colonial style building with cobble stone pathways. Although tiny the buffet choices makes it worth the while

Conviniently placed on the main street in Kingstown the food and the service is avarage, but they have a few veterarian options. I found it slightly overpriced for quality and quantity.

Myself and my sisters ate here and we thought the food was average. Same with the service. My sister was the only one to use the restroom there because she told us what it was like. Clean but smelt like a sewer. There are better places to eat than this.

Thank Robert W
