Uncle Roddy's is a simple homestyle restaurant on the beach at Spanish Well Point in Barbuda which serves the best lobster we've ever had. It's worth the adventure to get there.
If like us you're arriving by boat you pull the dinghy up on the sand at the security gate to the airstrip & Roddy will come and get you in his pickup. It's best to let him know in advance that you're coming so he can make sure he has enough provisions in and so that you'll get the all-important lift. Otherwise it's a two-mile walk down an unmade road over native burrs which'll shred your feet! Tricky if you're going for an evening meal ...
Once there Roddy offers a buffet including chicken, fish, fabulous plantane and salad and lobster which is home-grown in the lagoon, a body of water 7-times as salty as the sea & so providing its unique flavour (the Barbudans import the big ones & save the smaller fry for the islands' guests).
Roddy also provides beer, wine & rum punch but make sure you take enough cash. Barbuda isn't credit card friendly & you don't want to miss out.
Uncle Roddy himself is a sixty-something, well-spoken gent, a Barbudan native who has seen a bit of the world & has some good stories to tell.
Like everyone else we met on this incredible island (my favourite in the Caribbean), Roddy is an honest, warm, interesting host - a visit is a must.
His telephone number is: 268 785 3268
