Fodor's Expert Review Round House
Owners Robert and Gail Manley oversee the menu for guests staying in their historic (1832) manse-turned-inn, as well as tourists enjoying the east coast and Bajans dining out. The lunch menu—served on a deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean—includes homemade soups and quiches, sandwiches, salads, and pasta. Dinner choices—served in the moonlight—extend from shrimp scampi, oven-baked dolphin steak, or grilled flying-fish fillet to baked ham, sirloin steak, or homemade pasta specials. Some people come just for the flying-fish pâté. Rolls and breads (whether for sandwiches or dessert), along with apple and coconut pies, are personally made by the owners. From the outdoor dining deck, the view of ocean waves smashing on the rugged coastline is mesmerizing. From November to April, the last dinner reservation is 7:30 pm. In the off-season, the restaurant closes at 4 pm.
