Dined here recently as a solo Diner. Was able to converse with a delightful couple from Connecticut who'd visited the island for the past 14 years. Kathy's was always high on their list of stops. They had been here four times the past month alone....More

Local joint with rustic island flare. The jerk pork is succulent and will literally make you lick your fingers. Meals include large portions with seasonal sides. Staff was friendly and helpful!

The portions are large. We had mahi mahi and ribs. Both excellent. Served with rice, salad, veggies, potato salad. Spicy but very good. Price is average. Everything hot and fresh.

The food was really incredible- We had both the jerk ribs and BBQ ribs. We preferred the jerk ribs which were not overly spicy but just right. You definitely get authentic food here. When we walked in there was no one to greet us, so...More

I don't like adding negative reviews for small, locally owned restaurants but this place was bad. After being seated and ordering we waited well over an hour for our meal. Probably close to 1.5 hours. The food was OK and the portions large. Overall a...More

Cathy's is a St Kitts institution: plastic tablecloths, rough old chairs, the whole shack looking as if it's nailed together from bits of previous shacks, but the food that comes to your table is fantastic and really good value: we just paid EC$139 (£36) for...More
