Mrs. Scatliffe's Restaurant

For the ultimate in local home cooking and personalized service, you won't want to miss this spot. It is not a restaurant, in fact, but the home of an otherwise retired local resident, Mrs. Scatliffe who prepares a different meal each night for guests who she welcomes to dine on the deck in her garden.


There is no set menu when you dine with Mrs. Scatliffe. Instead, you'll enjoy her authentic homemade West Indian cuisine, often prepared with produce from her garden.

Mrs. Scatliffe's Restaurant is a popular grill that happens to specialize in Caribbean cuisine. The setting here, as far as the style and level of formality, is informal. This eatery is open for dinner only, so make sure to plan your visit around the limited hours they are open.


Mrs. Scatliffe's is located in the yellow home across from the primary school. Dinner is typically served by a local teenager hired on for the night to make a few extra bucks, so the quality of service does vary on this aspect. Diners should be aware that Mrs. Scatliffe is of strong faith, and will often read a verse from the bible or say a prayer before the food is served.
