We had to book 48 hours ahead, but well worth the wait. Meal was superb, even if Fernando had not caught the fish this time as he had his outboard motor pinched. Still atmosphere and service were superb.

Getting a table here is the hardest thing. One sitting, very limited menu, basic decor then why go? Simply you eat what the proprietor catches off his boat that day. Don't like Fish, don't come! The best restaurant on the island bar none. Best staff ved it.

We found Fernando,s lacked atmosphere and was not as good as the other restaurants on the Island. Food was average infact my fish was overcooked.the rustic style just did not work for us.

We went here for our last dinner in Bequia as a combination of a farewell and birthday celebration. We met Fernando who was so nice and chatted with us for a bit (we were the first ones there). As it's known, Fernando will cook what he has on hand so there is no set menu. That night it was a... More

Difficult to find (when coming fro town turn L at bottom of hill. There is a limited choice as others have indicated. The service is good. The food rather uninspired. Wine very limited...have Rum Punch instead.

A horrible assortment of incompatible dishes that left a dissapointing view of caribbean cusine. I can understand keeping an ultra rustic rustic vibe but this is rediculous. Poor seating and a literal uphill hike to this restaurant leaves you tired getting there or hungry after a poor tasting meal. The callaloo soup was a disaster. Apparently the callaloo was ground...

Fernando's Hideaway is aptly named: the chef's name is actually Fernando ... and his restaurant is hard to find ... off the beach and hidden half-way up a hill from the north end of Lower Bay. The restaurant is on the terrace / patio of a house carved out of the forest ... it is noisy in a good way... More

Red Snapper done to perfection and Coconut Ice Cream and Lemon Cake to wrap it all up. The covered patio, high in the hills above Lower Bay is worth the trip.

Fernando's is not just a restaurant, but an experience. The staff was super friendly. Popcorn is available at the table prior to your meal. You pick your main course (fish, chicken, beef), and they served you the sides available that night. The sides were amazing! The atmosphere of the charming, outdoor patio is perfect for dinner and discussion with a... More
