Our food was just ok, there were restaurants with better views that served better quality food close by. I did like the massive tree though all lit up, reminded my of the avatar film.

Buzz restaurant is a modern restaurant with great service and a menu to match. We found this place on our last evening in Rodney bay otherwise we would have been back. The braised beef ribs and potato gratin was cooked to perfection and there was just enough room for creme brûlée. A good selection of wine by the bottle or... More

Under the capable hands of new ownership, we had a marvelous dinner at the Buzz. Matthew was most helpful with his descriptions of the menu items and made some great recommendations for us. We got there in time for Happy Hour & enjoyed 2 for 1 drinks. A Good start. The cheesy crack bread continues to be a favorite starter.... More

I found Buzz a wonderful little delight. The bar atmosphere is very relaxed. The hosts and staff are warm and adds to the "relaxed bar vibe" The dining set up can be romantic and private, casual and relaxed or outdoors under the starry night and the awesome tree canopy that adds to the unique character of Buzz.

Dear ZT, Thank you for your detailed review. Marisa and I along with the team try to make everyone feel relaxed and at ease. We are not a pretentious restaurant and we are delighted that you felt comfortable and "relaxed". The Flamboyant tree is easily our most outstanding feature in the garden and customers love dining beneath it. Matthew More

Description
Whatever you do, don’t leave Buzz till your last night. Besides their à la carte menu they have nightly specials. Buzz has been operating for 12 years and Pat Bowden and Chef Marie who have worked together for 37 years have been successful in all their restaurants. Pat has created a restaurant and bar with a warm ambience, friendly atmosphere and lots of charm. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and as the name implies, is abuzz with activity. Food is presented on dishes in varying shapes, sizes and colours. Buzz is known for Seafood; Fresh Tuna, Potato Crusted Snapper, Baked Mahi Mahi filled with Avocado and Shrimp, Swordfish and a variety of Shrimp, Scallop & Lobster dishes (in season). House specialities include Homemade Raviolis, Lamb Shanks, West Indian Pepperpot, Rack of Lamb & Black Angus Beef hand trimmed and served with a variety of sauces. Homemade Desserts include a Trio of Crème Brûlée, Warm Apple Crêpes, Chocolate Mousse and Banana Pecan Bread Pudding. Mervin the Bartender will whip up fun cocktails like our “famous” Mango Dacquiri, Buzzing Bee Stinger and Buzz Cooler. Not only does Mervin keep the guests amused with his “chat”, he also keeps the children amused with his “card tricks.”
