We love you all as much as we loved the food, what's to dislike the sea gently lapping on the sand the sound of laughter and people chatting and the most amazing fresh fish it really can't be beaten, I have to admit on our last night I cried hugged all the staff and felt as if I was leaving...

We tried to eat here. Walked in and there was an older gentleman behind the bar. Asked him for a menu and he walked out slowly, sat at a picnic table outside and turned his back on the restaurant. He didn't come back. No one else appeared. We left.

We've heard so many good things about Cathy's on our trips to the island and we finally got a chance to try it out for dinner this time around. Cathy's is right in the middle of the strip amidst several other beach bars. We've eaten at some of the others which were ok, so we weren't sure what to expect... More

We ate at Cathy's three times on our week's vacation in St. Kitts. The prices are among the best on the island. The food IS the best on the island!! I tried the jerk chicken, the jerk ribs and the lobster. All perfect! And Cathy has the best rum punch I've ever tasted. (lots of rum in it!) It's on... More

Ate at the restaurant two Fridays in a row, the service was a bit slow, even compared to St. Kitts and Caribbean standards but the food was worth the wait. Just make sure you have a couple of drinks ordered while you wait. The restaurant is a beach bar, but don't expect to stand at the bar and order drinks,... More

Gotta say I was less than impressed with dinner here. While it wasn't bad it, it wasn't very good either. Jerk pork for me...it was basically a pork chop simmered in Graces jerk BBQ sauce. C'mon guys, this I can do at home...it was served with a green salad, veggies and rice. The salad was on the same plate basically... More

food was decent but the picnic table with the hard sand "floor" was a bit underwhelming. be sure to go before dark as the shoreline views are nice

Friendly service and good BBQ. Just bring bug spray! It's right on the water, relax at a picnic table and enjoy. Don't let the mosquitos ruin your night.

This was my 2nd time at Cathy's, we were there 4 years ago and enjoyed the food so much that we went back on this vacation. We had the bbq ribs and chicken. The ribs were so good we went back on our last night on the island

Cathy's was recommended and our best experience for local food. The barbecue and jerk chicken and pork, tender and tasty. The shrimp was also well done, the fish is whole so watch the bones. The combos of barbecue and seafood were the best. Casual atmosphere with a few picnic tables on the beach and indoor seating. The service was very... More
