Mayreau is a tiny island, but it has a few restaurants. We ended up at Righteous Robert's because we'd been there 7 years earlier. We loved it then and we loved it now. Robert treated us like old friends - he couldn't have possibly remembered us - but we felt very welcomed.
Favorite Dish: We had some deep-fried fish chunks that were the best I've ever tasted. The fresh-baked bread was fabulous. By far the star of the whole meal was Macintosh's unbelievable Callalloo Soup. I'd been trying the callalloo soup in every restaurant on Bequia and none before or after even came close to Macintosh's.
It's not easy to get to Mayreau. We took a day excursion on the Friendship Rose out of Bequia. But it would be worth any hardship to get there just to eat Macintosh's cooking.
We were probably the first tourists of the season (a month early). A colorful, comfortable, caribbean decorated restaurant with attitude and great food. We met the owner "Righteous" Robert Rice, a lively rastafarean who paints & decorates the place himself, and were graced with his company for the duration of our meal. Ask him the story about the hanging chair! We were fed a delicious and filling meal of Red Snapper and rice, prepared in a great tasting sweet and sour sauce by a fine chef, washed down with some cold beer. We would recommend this place. The restaurant is open air (like every place else) and it was a bit warm while we were there.
While you're at Righteous Robert's, see if Sharon is there to braid your hair. She does an excellent job.
Fondest memory: The food at Righteous Robert's. Try the Callalloo Soup and the fresh baked bread. Macintosh is a fabulous chef!!
