We sailed into Little Harbour and picked up a buoy. Within a couple of minutes Cynthia approached on her little RIB to offer us free mooring if we have dinner at her restaurant. The menu looked great and the offers came thick and fast to persuade us! And yes, we can bring our own wine! We moved our boat to... More

My wife and I have chartered in the BVI's and Harris Place and it's owner Cynthia are a must do for us every trip. We enjoyed sharing Harris Place with the three other couples and they all agreed the meal and Cynthia are very special!

We've been to Harris's Place every year for some 15 years in a row. The place is fantastic food is island style and rum is flowing. Bar is self serve.

Caribbean stories are written about Cynthia and Harris's. Don't miss your chance to visit and live the reality! My next visit to the BVI, I will return here, like the bubbly pool and the baths; Harris' Place and Cynthia are not to be missed.

Cynthia is a charming charismatic loving butt kicker of a woman! This is a very small quaint family run place where Cynthia does it all! You feel like you are a guest in her home being pampered! Dinner was quiet and romantic. I got to try her homemade pea soup-to die for and ofcourse andegonda lobster! My friend and I... More

The food was good, but the quiet bay and rustic atmosphere makes this a must stop. I held back on the 5 star rating because the food was average for the area (3) I had the ribs, but Hog Heaven on Virgin Gorda spoiled me. My wife had the lobster (you have to check out her lobster tank!) and it... More

We had the best grouper ever at Harris' Place. Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The grouper was very fresh, poached in a vegetable broth which simply enhanced the fish. Dinner price included soup, bread and salad, a real value in the islands. The painkillers were wonderful. Cynthia, the proprietor is a delight. We highly recommend it!

We were in JVD last week and dined at Harris' Place. We are New Yorkers so we expect a lot! We weren't disappointed. First off, Cynthia is a great host and proprietor. She is friendly, very smart and knowledgeable about her food, JVD, - and world events and is a great raconteur. She sold us on coming to Harris' Place... More

We were in the Caribbean and we are pretty easy to please but this was the worst food for the highest price that we have ever had! We both ordered the lobster and ended up feeding it to the Tarpon and they wouldn't even eat it. My husband described it as the lobster from last year that was refrozen a... More

Good Morning, I am totally blown away by your comments. I would like to ask that you please describe who you dealt with while visiting our restaurant? I would also like to offer apologies. We would never charge $180.00 for 2 Lobster Dinners. Please feel free to forward your receipt to me for review and possible correction and refund. Harris... More
