Had lunch the day before we pick up our charter. Their products are of high quality. Their bakery was also excellent.

Definitely worth making a trip over. We had a yummy coffee and some delish pastries. Not far from The Moorings Marniers Inn.

I have been here only once and I loved it. The ham is outstanding, none of the water injected stuff we are used to. I suspect all their meats are the same, just amazing. A good selection of deli means and pastries that I am sure you will not find anywhere else in the BVIs. They have a small restaurant... More

Thank you for your review. The majority of our cheeses and meats are imported from France. The difference in texture and flavor stems out from no preservatives, additives and/or colorants in the foods. Most of the cheeses are unpasteurized. The breads and pastries are made from scratch in our bakery mostly with imported French ingredients, as well. We also thank... More

Expensive - it is Tortola - where literally EVERYTHING cost a fortune, but amazing selection as compared to the grocery stores

Thank you MSWoodill for your positive comment on our product selection. After living in BVI for over 20 years, we must agree on the fact that BVI tends to be an expensive destination. The prices for our European imported deli products compare to St. Martin (if you can find them there) and Paris, France. Our breads and pastries here in... More

The food was good, the service good, the people friendly, it was close to everything we were doing in the port area. What more could you ask for.

Deli has very good French products, wonderful sandwiches, great cold cuts, superb baked good (regular/almond/chocolate croissants, baguettes). It is a must go... Even if the look of the place is average. Try the pate or mousse sandwich, or the ham/Brie/baguette... Fantastic! Family favorites...

Thanks for your positive review on our products and sandwiches. We strive to have repeats for the food and products selection. The clientele is mostly pick up and go. Whoever stays for lunch do find the atmosphere pleasant, even though we are not a full fledge restaurant. Both the Deli and service are casual. We look forward to see you... More

We had booked into Hummingbird House for an overnight having completed our One week charter with BVI. Sort of fell down the hill, crossed the road courtesy of local lorries, our nautical eyes yet to adjust. We found a vacant table upstairs and were served a mix of ryes and baguettes followed by coffees.

This is off the beaten path. We had a hard time finding it, but were glad we persevered. Had a lunch with good cheeses, pate, salami, baguette, and eclairs, etc. Nice people there, too.

We always come here when we provision our boat charter as its close to the Moorings Base. The food items and selections are great. The service, well that's not so great. We've found over the last 5-6 years that the staff can be down right rude to charter folks who come here while being friendly to locals. This is somewhat... More

What a great find...After our original destination for lunch was closed, we pulled into the small parking lot for several shops and found French Deli. I am so glad we did. Today's soup special was Lentil Soup, and it was amazing. The frites (French Fries) were crispy and to die for. And, the Cubano Sandwich was the best I've ever... More
