I am reluctant to dignify your review with a response!!! Beyond referring to your remark RE" Thrown out of your hotel" I imagine this is something you have experienced many times!!!

Been to Mr. Vic a few times. Always a great night. Small bar but you are made to feel special. I think they have entertainment some nights as well. Did not eat but food looked nice.

Mr Vic is a roadside bar situated in Payne's bay a mile south of Holetown.Though not fine dining, Mr Vic has over the last 4 yrs established a reputation for serving excellent food at affordable prices, with a choice of both Carribbean & British fare. Mr Vic caters for groups as well as couples, families and singles. A large variety of local and international cocktails are mixed by Mr Vic himself ( arguably the best barman on the West coast)Live music is also played. Steel pan on a Thursday & Fab Jazz on a Sunday
