Tonight's special was grilled pork, but they also had a delicious grilled wahoo special. The owner Paul greeted us with warmth and personality. Initially, he generously served island cocktails and followed that with abundant wine pours. Both dinner specials were over the top, and served with steamed fresh vegetables and a variety of potato options. I recommend this place for... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at The Cabernet. Just a short walk from our slip at Village Cay Marina. A very hot night but the host put 2 tables together under a ceiling fan and it was lovely. Many thanks to the live-aboard at the marina who recommended it to us. We had meals from gyros to ribs and all... More

What a great place. The standard greeting is "welcome home" and that is how they look after you. Despite the casual appearance, their dedication to food quality is fantastic. Great value for money and a lot of fun.

Best grill on the island. Recommend the lamb and the brisket. I don't know what magic he does, but Paul creates awesome food

I went there recently on a stop through the BVI's. This bar is a very fun and cool spot, It was packed and had lots of young and fun people there. Lots of Yachties and young travelers. I had a bad "service" experience that started when I asked for a local beer and they gave me a "Red Stripe" to... More

Definitely a happening spot with locals -- lots of folks doing after work drinks at the bar. Dont let that fool you - the food is fantastic! Had fish tacos and chicken roti - both excellent chef quality dishes. Get the Painkiller here, it will make a great meal even better.
