We were in JVD last week and dined at Harris' Place. We are New Yorkers so we expect a lot! We weren't disappointed. First off, Cynthia is a great host and proprietor. She is friendly, very smart and knowledgeable about her food, JVD, - and world events and is a great raconteur. She sold us on coming to Harris' Place... More

We were in the Caribbean and we are pretty easy to please but this was the worst food for the highest price that we have ever had! We both ordered the lobster and ended up feeding it to the Tarpon and they wouldn't even eat it. My husband described it as the lobster from last year that was refrozen a... More

Good Morning, I am totally blown away by your comments. I would like to ask that you please describe who you dealt with while visiting our restaurant? I would also like to offer apologies. We would never charge $180.00 for 2 Lobster Dinners. Please feel free to forward your receipt to me for review and possible correction and refund. Harris... More

You will not go wrong at Harris' Place. The best Bushwackers on the island. Cynthia is the consummate hostess. She will make you feel as if you are part of the family. Food is great and the atmosphere could not be better.

Harris' Place has the best food in the BVIs. The seafood is wonderful, the bbq chicken is very tasty and the painkillers are a must have. Cynthia, the owner, is a beautiful lady inside and out. She took great care of us. Do not leave JVD before visiting Harris' Place, you won't regret it!

In Little Harbor, Harris' Place is one of three places are tucked away from the crowds. While I can't compare it to the other two, as we only ate here, we enjoyed ourselves. Dinner was wonderful, if a bit expensive. I don't believe Cynthia was there, but the two women we dealt with were very nice. Unlike other's experience, no... More

How often does the owner of a restaurant come out to help tie up your dinghy. The welcome from Cynthia was fabulous, the food more so. After a noisy night at Cane Garden Bay we wanted some peace and quiet, we found it in Little Harbour. We also found our best meal in the BVIs. Home cooked lobster bisque exquisitely... More

Upon pulling into Little Harbour we didn't even have the mooring ball attached and Cynthia was out to collect the ball fee. All attention was given to catching the ball but Cynthia wanted her money. Once we were attached she proceeded to be rude to us once she learned we were dining at Sydneys. We were on a charter thru... More

We had reservations @ Sydney's (which we like), but a flotilla decended into Little Harbour, & Cynthia aka Nikea, was gracious enough to stay open to serve us. Food: top notch (3 of 5 of us had the grouper...I have never tasted better. Nikea waited, engaged, story told, served drinks, cooked, and also waited on other bar patrons. I know... More

Dined at Harris' Place August 19th, 2016. Magically caught Cynthia between summer vacation and seasonal shut down. Service was great, meal was great: Lobster Brisk, Garlic Bread, Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing, Lobster, Beans & Rice, plus desert. Be careful when ordering lobster, the quality and preparation will be great. The size determines dinner cost which ranges from $35... More

Having been to both Harris' and Sidney's over the years I definitely preferred Harris'. Lobster was huge and amazing and every side dish was fantastic from the lobster bisque to the bread to the veggies. Only knock is it is slow, we were there almost 2 hours before we got our main course. It was fantastic but by that time... More
