I visited Uncle Roddy's in 2014 and was just checking to see if the restaurant/outdoor grill was still there. I had a fabulous time, meal and great company and am anxious to go back!

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...More

We are sorry to say that Uncle Roddys restaurant has been badly damaged due to Hurricane Irma that passed over the Island Sept 5th and 6th 2017 and will be closed until further notice . We are hoping for a speedy recovery for the island of Barbuda that was devastated by this hurricane .
