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.

After stopping in at Corairs and seeing the $45 burger, we decided to try Ali Babas. It was good. The BBQ chicken was tangy and tasty but really rather dry. My wife had the Roti and thought it was also good and spicy. Everything was $25 per meal (except lobster which is more) so a little spendy for chicken and... More

Chicken Roti is awesome! Service was quick. I was told by an acquaintance that rooms available here are affordable, clean, and comfortable.

We were only customers around 6pm and were hesitant due to that, but we were so thrilled that we picked Ali Babas for dinner, lunch and a buffet dinner on New Years eve. Family owner members were so attentive, accommodating that we felt like old freinds, the island cuisine was wonderful, some of best BB chicken and BB ribs we... More

Our first night on JVD we had dinner at Ali Baba's. There is a beautiful view of Great Harbor as you dine. We were lucky enough to have a "parade" of locals pass singing Christmas Carols as we ate.
