Having read the reviews we popped to the sailors rest for lunch. We ordered bruschetta, chicken wings and fish strips. The bruschetta was made from old hamburger rolls with a raw slice of tomatoe and a slice of Kraft square cheese semi melted on the top, it was a soft gooey mess. The chicken wings were deep fried with a spicy sauce poured on top of them which were too tough to eat, the fish strips faired a little better but only just. It was also extortionally expensive $45 for the priveledge of eating awful food for a pretty view. Such a shame

This little nook was perfect for enjoying a drink and a quick bite while deciding on your next move, the quintessential Caribbean restaurant. The staff was super friendly and the food is totally tasty. Can't wait to get back!

Great little find right on Cane Garden Bay near the dingy dock. Fills up fast so make reservations and sit down and enjoy the leisurely service and amazing food! We loved this place so much we went twice and both times had the curry lobster that seriously was the best ever. Love this place!

During our honeymoon on Tortola, my husband and I had a daily routine that went something like this:

-Wake up (whenever)
-Get coffee down at the Soper's Hole Marina (D'Best Coffee)
-Stop by Sailor's Rest for our morning cocktail (that's allowed on your honeymoon, by the way)

This little waterfront beach bar is not to be missed! They play reggae gospel (oddly enjoyable) and are mixing up the best painkillers on Tortola! It's a great place to watch the sailboats come in and out of busy Cane Garden Bay, and you feel like you are tucked away on a private deck - away from all of the tourists on the beach. Sailor's Rest is a little piece of heaven.

P.S. They also make the best biscuits on earth. Seriously. We're from Virginia (where people don't mess around with biscuits), and I wish I could make a biscuit this good.
