Description: Welcome to the new Cruzins Bar and Grill. Under new management since Spring 2016, Owner Chefs Andre, the Grillmaster and Kiesha Donovan offer local fresh foods island style prepared and cooked for your delight. Our fish is selected fresh off the local fishing boats each day including Bull-Hind, much like trout, Yellowtail, much like snapper, Hard-nosed fish from the family of blue runner fish and of course lobster, fresh caught the day you enjoy it. Out fish dinners are grilled in foil with onions, garlic, peppers and butter and our own jerk seasoning. Try our BBQ Chicken and Ribs are in a league of their own. Finger licking good with savory meats that fall off the bones served with French Frys that never tasted so good. Cruzins Bar and Grill; local food never tasted so good.

It was a nasty rainy night and we were looking for someplace reasonable and local for dinner. As we were driving thru apple bay we saw this restaurant. There was only one couple at the bar but the place looked cozy. They set our table up in like an open shed that had a couple sofas and tables. Most of their dining tables were outside but since it was raining the accommodations they made were great. Our dinner was the best we had on all of Tortola all week. The special was Shepherds pie and it was delicious. If you want a good homemade meal and not break the bank this is the place for you. Great food, great atmosphere and great service.

I loved this quaint little bar and grill. Its outdoors across from the ocean. It had clean bathroom facilities and the bartender/cook was very friendly and talented. They have daily jars of different homemade cocktail and on this day it was blueberry moonshine, skittle moonshine and sangria. The reason we found this place was because it came highly recommended by locals as the best pizza on the island. It was true. I will definitely go here again when I return to Tortola.

Cruzin was once a quirky, customer-focused casual restaurant with great food and even better customer service (well done, Mac and Jean, for reviving the place)! However, Cruzin has now resorted to a tick-sheet menu for ordering food. Which means that Jean no longer comes to table to "read" her customers/suggest meal combos that may best suit individual tastes. Also, they now have paper napkins and cutlery in horrible cheap plastic baskets (yuk), rather than linen-napkin-neatly-wrapped cutlery. You now have to "ORDER HERE" at the bar. KFC, eat your heart out. Sad to add that some drinks are served in cheap plastic cups rather than proper glasses. I do hope this lovely restaurant and grille isn't turning into a cheap and nasty fast-food joint.

I'd say food quality and service from Jean is great (5 star), but overall service has recently declined. Considerably.

It's not our first meal at Cruzin as we have been there quite a few times over the years. With that being said, I finally had the chance to take some of my family to experience the overall atmosphere of the restaurant & all that it offers. Matt has done a great job - the meals are fantastic, the drinks - ditto (the mixed ones), you can't screw up a bottle. Everyone that was there tonight had a great time!! Great rotis!! We have 2 more weeks on the island & will definitely be back for more.

Good grief! Who would have thought that in Carrot Bay you would find an unpretentious bar/restaurant offering the widest selection of beers on island, numerous excellent wines, a great selection of premium rums (to go alongside the non-premium ones) and ... oh yeah ... some of the best roti you will find (along with amazing home made spicy sauce) along with great burgers and ... fresh sashimi! Simply a great experience delivered by really nice people. Really have to go back to experience the pizza! Happy for this gem of a find!
