I visited this restaurant for an escape from the office. The service is efficient and the food was good,well proportioned and easy on costs. I had the lamb and Macaroni pie which had a home made quality.

Not a bad place to grab a local dish in town. It's situated upstairs a building with an outside balcony so you have a partial view of Broad Street while you eat. The service is pretty ok, pleasant staff and buffet style food. It could be a little pricey depends on how much you're looking to spend on food but... More

The food was not bad ... although extremely dry as there were no condiments put on our sandwiches. I would have asked for something from the staff, but our presents seemed to bother them. There was only one other table occupied at the restaurant but the staff seemed too busy to really tend to us. Definitely not a place I... More

I really did enjoy the food I had here (pumpkin fritters) but the service was the worst I have experienced on the island... 20 minute wait to bring bottled drinks, forgotten drinks, forgotten food orders. Nice food, but in my opinion not worth the hassle.

I love going to this restaurant once my friends and I have completed our shopping at Cave Shepherd or Woolworth's. The service all round from the owner to staff is so friendly, especially Jalisa who is always on point and ever so pleasant yet professional. The food is very reasonably priced and you can choose to eat from the buffet... More

I had the goat it was very tender. sweet potatoes were good as well with a dash of cinnamon. Fried bananas were new to me but also good. We ordered flying fish a breadfruit both lightly done and excellent as well. Our view overlooked the street from a balcony. Our server was very nice.

I don't exactly know how we ended up at Ryanne's, but we did - they are off of a small staircase, and it almost gives you the feeling that you're going into some speakeasy or something, but opens onto a fairly nice balcony, similar in style to those in New Orleans, where you get to look out over the busy...

The secret is to order the special for the day. Prices reasonable and portions are great. Had the curried lamb with rice and peas and salad. It was all good. Of course we had cold Banks beer. Service was friendly.
