Our driver brought us here. It's fine. The owner is delightful and sweet, the rum punch was good - but it took soooooo long to get fried and a fish burger. The taste of the burger was good, but not worth the wait -- and the fries had some sort of spicy shaken stuff on them - which included sugar!... More

We had originally planned to have dinner, but found ourselves in the area mid-afternoon on our way back to our anchored boat. We were very happy when they were able to accommodate a late lunch (they stayed beyond normal lunch hours for us). And what a lunch!! Lobster and a chilled bottle of reasonably priced white wine. The lobster was... More

I'm not sure what everyone else experienced but in my opinion they have to do much better. We arrived as two couples, our waitress couldn't even tell us what the starter was, long story short it was a cheap salad that was repeated with our main! Lobster was small (only half) and Thermidor style (though the menu did not specify... More

Fab food (amazing $40 huge lobster), great drinks ($25 for a nice bottle of wine) and perfect service (classy but relaxed)

This is about as authentic Caribbean food and surroundings you could wish for. Gorgeous location on a quiet beach. Tremendous food, we had lobster which was generous in size and beautifully cooked. Kelcina and her team were great hosts and there was a good mix of company to make it a memorable evening. Laid back vibe and good times. If... More

We fell in love with Barbuda years ago and came back for 4 days this trip. We enjoyed a nearly private dinner at Uncle Roddy's and the food and ambience were spectacular! We got to chat quite a bit with the owner, and she is such a delight!!! Really knows her island, and clientelle and how to serve you! The... More

Uncle Roddy's has always been our favourite restaurant when visiting Barbuda. It has recently been taken over by Roddy's daughter, Kelcina, who has given the place a make-over, without detracting from the restaurant's positive aspects. Kelcina is a very welcoming and attentive host and the food and drink are delicious

We have visited Uncle Roddy's many times as a family and this year things have really improved. Pretty lighting and new decor gives the room a lovely ambiance and Kelcina now offers a much wider range of food and drinks, including a popular weekly happy hour. The local chef cooks interesting and delicious food - we had a fresh salad... More

It's always nice to go someplace where you know you're wanted. To get treated how you would treat others. You feel comfortable when going here. The food is outstanding and you'll want to keep coming back. Just remember to make reservations ahead of time. My only issue is, (if you wanna call it that), is when you eat the Lobster... More

Well princess Diana has been here as well as Robert Dinero, Jamie Packer and a few others. Don't expect fancy just an open Air locals joint with some of the finest food you have ever tasted. Sitting on the edge of the most gorgeous beach doesn't hurt either. Try the garlic grilled lobster... it maybe the best lobster you have... More
