The food was really very good and the wait staff was friendly and helpful. The location was walking distance from our hotel.

Had one meal here on our recent holiday to Rodney Bay. We were made very welcome and a table found for us on a busy evening. The food was great - we had a Stew and Cottage Pie which were very tasty. Though must say our memory will be of the Banana Pasty (dessert) which was delicious. Wish we had... More

Very pleasant outdoor surroundings under a big tree, like eating in a garden. The usual service for St. Lucia, which is to say slow and disinterested. My husband loved his short ribs. My caesar salad was fine, I appreciated that it was not overdressed. The bbq pork slider-type appetizer was truly inedible, dry meat served in some sort of oily,... More

Dear Follylover, Thank you for your review of Buzz. We take ALL complaints seriously and after looking through our records can find no report of your food complaint, which is a shame because we could have addressed it on the night you dined. Generally we have very good reviews on the Steamed pork bun and it should have been up... More

This could have been so much better had the food been prepared properly. I had the beef ribs and they tasted pretty good until I got a super fatty rib. Now remember you only get 3 or 4 ribs so like a quarter to a third of your food just went down the drain. Wife had the red snapper and... More

Hello there, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I am sorry about your experience and I remember as I was the one who spoke to you in the end. I was only aware of your issue with the Snapper dish when we spoke so this is the first i am hearing about the short ribs.... More

We have visited St Lucia many times and always had wonderful food at Buzz, including once on New Year's Eve. As we hadn't visited for four years we were not surprised to hear that it had changed hands, but assumed the menu was much the same. However, as fish lovers, and not eating meat, we found the menu to be... 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.”
