We had a delicious lunch of conch fritters and fresh salad accompanied by a Bees Knees cocktail. Claire and her daughters were warm and welcoming. We enjoyed our conversations and meeting their pet goat, dog, horse and especially their pig!

Thanks so much for your kind review, I agree, it is expensive on Barbuda but we have to import nearly everything, except the fish! Glad the overall feeling was that it was worth it though - without your custom we simply wouldn't exist.

We had a great anniversary dinner at Art Cafe. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves and the service, food and ambience was perfect. We even purchased a bottle of homemade rum as a souvenir. Highly recommend if you're visiting the island!
