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.”

“Have had better Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

We have been to Buzz quite a few times on trips to St. Lucia, this trip service was not up to normal levels. We were forgotten, we think it was as there was a table of 10 people who seemed to have most of the staff waiting on them. When someone eventually came to take our order they were quite snappy with us.

The food was very good when we got it (wine was forgotten), had been told that service can be bad, but this was the first time we had encountered this.

“Sit at the bar...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Great food and impeccable service. However, we kept coming back to sit at the bar for absolutely amazing cocktails and the funniest bartender on the island. The owner was equally lovely, and she had some choice words for the crappy hotel we stayed at across the street. Thanks for the memories.

“They found some lobsters.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

We barely beat a short rain storm on arrival.My wife was disappointed when she told they did
not have any lobsters on hand.We didn't want to brave the weather so we took seats regardless.When bringing menus the waitress said she was mistaken that lobsters where
available.Barb said her shellfish was great.I had the yellow fin tuna special of the night.It was
topped with a mango salsa that was delicious.Even though the menu asked us not to feed
the restaurant cat i gave her a small bite,she seemed impressed also.

The food and the service were outstanding. We stayed with our family for quite some time and were not rushed to leave. Very relaxing. Nice outdoor dining.
