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.

This was a wonderful restaurant!! The waitstaff was friendly and very fast!! The chef came and talked to us about his food sourcing and the fish. The ambience is romantic. And we met most of the other guests in this tiny treasure of a restaurant.

We've returned to Fernandos several times each trip for some of the best food on Bequia. Home style local fish or meat prepared by 'Nando, served with a smile by the ladies on a lovely candle lit terrace. We'll go back next year to dine among friends.

Wonderful, enchanted snapper dinner at Nando's. Beautiful setting in the trees above the beach. Watched Nando bring his catch of snapper in that morning. What more can you ask!

Fernando's is a genuinely real Caribbean experience. Loved the snapper , loved the vibe and the loo is worth a visit for comments and cards too : )
