I'm not usually compelled to write reviews but this is an exception. We had dinner several times here during our stay. Food consists of simply prepared local dishes that are wonderfully seasoned and balanced. Meals were filling but never greasy or heavy. Whatever you order, it will come with a variety of tasty sides/veggies, which vary depending on what's locally available/in season. The breadfruit salad and pumpkin fritters were particular favorites. The delicate, velvetty pumpkin soup is a great starter as well. For entrees we especially loved the grilled fish, fried fish and lobster but everything we had was good. And as for the desserts...Well if I said theirs was the best coconut cake I've ever had it would be no exaggeration, but the chocolate samosas (with ice cream of course) are to-die-for as well. Since other reviewers mentioned slow service I thought I'd chime in - as is par for the course in Bequia service can be less than speedy at times (and if you're waiting for another drink don't hesistate to flag down your waitress...also par for the course!) but unfailingly friendly and gracious. And with the gorgeous setting (plus free wifi and live entertainment on Wednesdays and Fridays) we never minded waiting a bit NOR did we ever wait very long on any occasion. Cheryl (the owner) is a gem who makes sure diners feel welcome and wants to see that their every whim is attended to. She's also great to chat to and well versed on many subjects. Oh and there are also freshly made local fruit juices that are devine - ask what's available when you're there. The guava cherry was my favorite. Prices always very fair. We look forward to returning to the Fig Tree on our next Bequia stay.
