This little place was the closest place to our hotel. We enjoyed sunset drinks and a fish sandwich on a number of days. The staff were friendly and the food was better than average. Good value for he dollar. The place only seated about maybe 12-16 people but was clean and well managed. With the water washing ashore right by... More

We visited La Playa Beach Bar several times during our stay on Carriacou. The warm welcome from Kathian is worth the visit alone. I had a nice lunch and a cold beer. What more could you want in hot sunshine. Would I visit again: Absolutely...make sure you visit when i Hillsborough.

We were in a hurry when we arrived at La Playa. The chef pulled out all the stops to have our food on the table within 15 minuets. The four burgers we ordered were really nice. Worth a second visit.

Loved this little place in a great spot right on the sea. Fantastic local beef burgers, honestly the best we've had ANYWHERE, and we live in a place where our local beef is very good! But these were excellent, very roughly ground and fantastic flavouring... impressive! Shame about the surly bar lady! We had read from others that the welcome... More

We had visited this little bar three times during our stay in Carriacou, the first just for a drink which was fine although, despite being advertised on the board, they had no rose or white wine and only three of the cocktails, service was okay though. The second time we came to eat but the cooker was broken. Finally on... More

Located on the beach this place is a simple no frills quick bite to eat. Reasonably priced we had a huge tasty burger and equally large fish fillet (barracuda) sandwich for under $12 us and that included potato wedges fried. Packed high with very fresh lettuce tomatoes and cucumber slices. Service was island speed but who cares right? Only negative... More

We were shown this place by the Deefer dive crew - it's hidden down the end of the main road of Hillsboro going away from the airport right on the beach. There is a sign but it's not that noticeable. The place is about 20 meters along the beach once you've reached the end of the main road and it... More

It's all in the title really.... With many restaurants charging far more than the quality of food is worth, this one is excellent value and extremely tasty. There is always just 4/5 things on the menu ranging from 20 to 35 EC. The owner makes all sorts of very tasty sauces and chutneys to go with all the food. Highly... More

We found this little gem while waiting for the ferry. It is located at the north end of the main street of Hillsborough along the shore. Very clean, the proprietor was friendly and the food was very good. We sat at a table with a great view of the harbour and right on the beach. I had the best tuna... More
