We wondered in and had perhaps the best meal of our entire sailing 7 days. The Mahi Mahi was the best we have ever had and we are from the island of Maui. The ribs are to die for and the bar is wonderful. Highly recommend eating there

Ali Baba's is worth a try when you are on Jost Van Dyke, BVI. We have visited Great Harbor, JVD many times and often dine at Foxy's, but have been disappointed a few times because the only offering on certain nights is a BBQ buffet. It was one if those nights when we stopped by last week. So we skipped... More

Menu board out front was touting a roast pig, but that was for the previous full moon dinner celebration. On the slate for the coming evening was an all you can eat barbecue buffet with chicken and ribs, and grilled fish. This was also served with corn on the cob, rice & peas, mixed vegetables, pasta salad, Caribean slaw, salad,... More

Unassuming beach bar with class. Victoria makes the best BBC in the world. All fresh ingredients and she takes the time to make it for you - no prescription-mix here. Clean restrooms.

Nice quiet place in town, not far from the police station. We called for reservations any had to tell them what we wanted in advance (fish). Which is not unusual on JVD. When we arrived there was only one other couple dining. I think we got a menu even though we had already specified we were getting the fish. There... More

There are no pre-mixed cocktail mixers here, everything is made from scratch with passion. Upon ordering the BBC, we were amazed to see the bartender return with fresh bananas begin hand crafting the drink. I had my share of BBC's, nothing compares to the recipe here. We spent time getting to know the owner's family and were made to feel... More

One of the best hamburgers I've ever had...but prepare to wait an incredibly long time for it. But you can kill time at the bar

We called ahead and they request your order before you arrive. It was helpful to know that the fish was available. The service was fast and friendly. Drinks and a nice salad was served quickly. The grilled mahi-mahi was delicious and served with rice and vegetables. We will definitely come again.
