Went in to get out of the rain. Cafe has a nice view of the marina and our waitress was pleasant. We ordered a tea and a coffee . The sign by the entrance said free wifi and coffee refills. When we had drunk the small cup of tea (no tea pot) and small cup of very average coffee we... More

We have lunch here on a regular basis when staying in Bequia.our usual order is grilled fish with a side salad. We have had red snapper, tuna, lion fish, grouper and others. Every one has been fresh ( you see the fishermen coming in to sell their latest catch) and delicious. Creole fish, ribs and pasta are also excellent and... More

We've eaten breakfast and lunch there are few times. The menu is basic international. Nice atmosphere - the owner is obviously into sailing and there are mementos dotted around the walls. Quality of food was reasonable for what it is. Service can be variable (this seems endemic to Bequia), though we were usually served fairly quickly. Nice view of the... More

A terrace restaurant with beautiful views of the harbour and right near the ferry dock. We stopped here for breakfast and the food was good. The service was the typical island pace, a little slow but it let us relax and enjoy the views.

It was ok. We only had 2 beers but I didn't dare placing my arms on the table because it was so sticky (and it was not due to the heat ;-). Two schoolboys were watching TV on the couch which I found cute, the other guests were sailing tourists. You can also leave a donation in a box for... More

Location was nice and barmaid nice so we decided to stay for food- what a mistake. ,!!!, WITH NOBODY AHEAD OF... More

Got to be the worst cheeseburger ever! And took nearly two hours to come! No apology and got the bill wrong. I hope they improve as they couldn't get worse.

Went here for lunch. The restaurant has a big balcony overlooking the harbor and the vendors on the street below. The food was average and not really value for money, but the atmosphere was good and the staff friendly.

We stopped into to Maria's for a drink and saw lion fish on the menu. We ordered a plate and enjoyed the fish (slightly oily and sweet). The slaw and fries were also good. Drinks were great as was the view.

Went to Marias for burgers and chips as a treat for the kids. After a long long long long wait the burgers arrived. My son bit into his and I am not joking - there was blood running down his chin as the meat was so raw. It appears that the burgers had been cooked from frozen and were charred... More
