This is a good restaurant at the Firefly, servicing tasty breakfast, lunch and dinner and mid afternoon snacks etc. Here you will find fresh treats from their farm, and the service is excellent.

Went on the tour and well worth the cost. Interesting way that the grounds are tended although a lot of the produce goes to a sister operation on another island.

Well I have to say my review is a little more downbeat than those previously. Essentially it is a stroll around a small plantation (probably created for this tour) being shown various fruit trees, herbs and spices, sugar cane and bee hives. Don't get me...More

I'm sorry if we didn't meet your expectations of the tour. The land you walked around is actually what is left of what was once a vast Plantation covering virtually that whole end of Bequia. Over the last few decades land was sold off and...More
