I had previously given Canoe Bar a less than stellar review. However, things change. We went back to Canoe several times during this last stay, partly because it was convenient to where we stayed on the West End, but mostly because the food is just...More

There are two sides to every story. It would certainly require some bad bad behaviour on the part of a customer to cause this reaction in an owner. Also, it says alot that you refer to a black owner and staff as ' uppity'.

We had lunch here- devil burger and escoviched fish sandwich with fries. Everything was great and their price for a bucket of Red Stripe beers is good ($1000JA for 5). Nice little beach view as well.

Thank you for your review, so glad that you enjoyed your time with us. I need to say though that it's not us but the natural actions of the sea that moves the sand around, plenty of sea glass after the next rough water!'
