Ballahoo Restaurant

Ballahoo is located on the second floor of the building, above a souvenir shop. This locale is great for cruise ship passengers who are off the ship for an excursion or day of exploring, and want to enjoy an authentic island meal in an easy going environment.


Ballahoo is a haven for those who enjoy good food. While specialties are chilli shrimp, conch simmered in garlic butter, Madras beef curry, and a toasted rum-and-banana sandwich topped with ice cream; you also get some of the best chilli and baby back ribs in town here. Star attractions include delicious blue parrotfish filet and succulent conch in garlic butter. You can enjoy the seafood platters with coconut salad and rice – a wonderful combo. Others may prefer Italian-style chicken breast topped with pesto, tomatoes, and cheese and served with pasta and salad or the Salade Niçoise.

Ballahoo Restaurant is a bar and grill that serves Caribbean and eclectic dishes. As far as the style of dining and food goes, the setting is very casual. This dining option's open during breakfast, lunch, and dinner, allowing you and your group to sample their cuisine at almost any meal.


Overlooking the Circus Clock, it is an open-air restaurant that draws most of the cruise-ship crowd. With calypso and reggae playing on the sound system, the whirring fans, potted palms and the colourful island prints, you get an ambience with a very tropical feel.
