We had our first evening meal of the holiday there and came back for two Reggae nights, when the tables are all booked, and also one other night when we joined in the post Gold Cup evening fun. There is a good cocktail menu and a really good bar vibe. We will be back.

The music was good reggae. Dinner was okay, service left a bit to be desired. If you are looking for music and drinks, may be an option.

Visited tonight and ordered starters and main courses. The main course came before the starters! apologies were made and we accepted them. Then the starters came, the calamari was acceptable but the crab fish cakes were frozen in the middle and had to be sent back. Apologies made again and the offer of taking the starters off the bill made.... More

No excuses, simply unacceptable! I was not working last night and therefore not able to do anything to remedy such a poor experience. Please accept my sincere apologies. I would be very happy to offer you a complimentary dinner and hope you give us the opportunity to turn a negative experience into a positive. More

Mr Vic and his partner are the nicest people you could hope to meet. We just happened upon raggae night our first night in the area. The food was good and reasonably priced; the flying fish appie was a must try. We went back again, it was so good.

We visit this bar for a late night drink or a sundowner. Vic is excellent with the cocktails. Probably the best in the area. This year we ate there on 2 occasions, during our 10 day stay. The food was excellent and compared very well with the up market hotels and restaurants for a fraction of the price. We will... More

Mr Vic bar and restaurant is a must, food is reasonable on price and excellent, best coconut shrimp on the island by far. They have music nights, steel pan Monday and reggae on a Wednesday. Can't wait to be back.
