This restaurant has a very good view over the main square of Basseterre and it is a good place to have a drink and something to eat with the very decent menu they serve. Recommended restaurant in Basseterre

Had lunch here and a very pleasant time. Plenty of choice, good service and a reasonable cost. We did go in low season however the place was busy with tourists and locals alike.

We always make sure to eat here in the middle of the clock circle after shopping at the port! Sometimes you are lucky and catch a nice breeze and I've always enjoyed the food and my cold Carib 😎

Ballahoo Restaurant is in the Basseterre, St. Kitts, downtown. It is on the second floor. One must walk up a steep flight of stairs. (I did not check it there is an elevator.) The view is fantastic. You can see the downtown roundabout with its Picadilly Circus clock tower, the History Museum building, the upper decks of cruise liners when... More

Perfect menu and great location right in the center. Hit this place for lunch or a drink. Free wifi, and a great view. Perfect for people watching.

The best I can say about Ballahoo is that if you're hungry it's convenient to cruisers walking out of Port Zante. Nothing memorable about the food, service was somewhat slow and disappointing compared to the friendly service we've encountered in Frigate Bay. Sit at a table overlooking The Circus and at least you can people watch while waiting for your... More

They hardly had anything that was listed on their menu..I do understand that there was a high traffic because of the music festival happening, but come on they should have foreseen it coming and have proper supplies on hand.. It was so annoying that half the stuff we choose were not available. The waitresses need to step their game up... More

Ate here with family of five for lunch. Service was good and drinks (ballihootini and mojito) were very good. My non adventurous part of the family had a chicken sandwich, chicken fingers and a hamburger which were fine. Conch fritters were fantastic and the grilled snapper was awesome as well. Their homemade lemonade was outstanding too. Most tables overlook the... More

We had lunch there and were quite disappointed. After reading a review of the newly reopened Ballyhoo we were anticipating a fine cuisine with friendly staff. I think the staff were friendlier than the food. The burger was cooked to death and the chicken sandwich was about the same. We will not be going back there.
