Not a large menu, but the fish is the finest I've had anywhere. The best dish was fresh tuna salad. The fish is cooked perfectly and the sauces are spicy and tasty, without being too hot. The service is relaxed, accommodating and personal.

De Reef is one of my favourite places to hang out in Bequia. The food is always good, the rum punch truly packs a punch, and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. No better place to have lunch on the beach!

The lobster was perfect with simple, authentic, caribbean sides. We were the only people in the restaurant and it seemed a little too quiet. The atmosphere was somewhat lacking but good view of the water.

This is a wonderful spot for families, lots of space and one is welcome to sit in a wet bathing suit. It's location right off Lower Bay Beach can't be bear as in my opinion Lower Bay is the best swimming beach on the Island. The prices have risen over the last few years, ditto the drinks, but so have... More

We made a beeline for lower Bay having heard that they occasionally have turtles and even mantas swimming off the beach. The location is just wonderful, with white sand beach and gentle waves under a perfect sun, and the food does not disappoint with simple Caribbean dishes such as conch and lobster. It was our last day on the vacation... More

We stumbles on this little gem and have to say that if you go for the carribean dishes it is an absolute find! The fish is delicious (I also had the conch while my husband had the grilled fish) and the beach view is spectacular! In fact, I would recommend a dip while you are there as the water is... More

Food in Bequia is generally poor in our opinion. De reef is a notable exception, their lobster salad is fantastic as is the conch soup and conch curry. Try to find a better one , in 9 days we could not!

When you get to Bequia ask for Dolly and he'll take you around. The bar leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to decor but the food is good. It's right on the beach and the wonderful shades of blue and the warm sea breeze makes up for what's missing.
