Sweet Oasis
Close to the dock and right opposite the island’s main store, this sit-up bar and restaurant offers good breakfast lunch and dinner, although the service can be a little bit surly at times and the music a bit overpowering!

Miss Bridgett’s
Set just back from the main path, and very close to the dock, this is a backpacker favourite due to it’s reputation as having the cheapest lobster meals on the island.

Worth booking in advance though to try and cut down on that wait for food. Breakfasts from $3, meals $6-$10

Now offering a great range of breakfasts for only $3.50 , worth checking out! Meals $6-$10

Tiki Bar

Towards the south of the island, past the path to east side of the island, this rooftop bar is locally run, occasionally serves food, open when they feel like it, and can sometimes still be serving beer as the sun rises….. or not, you never know… which of course is why you’re going there and not to TGI Fridays……

 

Happy Hut
Set in the woods just behind Tranquilo bar, Happy Hut plays local music and has recently opened up to the outside seating area. Open randomly it seems…. look out for special night speaking to the locals or Rasta Punch to find out whats happening!!
