Which BVI restaurant deserves the slogan " If you think our service is bad..wait til you taste our food!" We know the ones we love ..lets have some fun with the ones that we dont think so much of..all in good fun. We'll be working on a "gift" for the best answer..And " All of them" wont work!

While the live music is great, "The Elm" BBQ certainly will not rate amongst Epicures.

Add another on to Foxy's BBQ. We tried it once again last March and in no time, asking ourselves how many times we have to be hit on the head.

Long gone 10 years but my candidate would be the C&F. Service was atrocious but Clarance's ribs were to die for. (Of course you mignt die before the ribs got to the table. )

Actually the service in the Majority of restaurants in the BVI are equivalent to either sitting in a Morgue or a Funeral parlor.

so a friend of mine has been a restauranteur all his life & the quality of service, non changing of cutlery and 20-25% 'service charge' (hold on, there was no service smile ) drives him potty, it's similar in Greece; fact is you have to adjust, this isn't London, or New York so you have to adjust your expectations accordingly.

True..but, even in the BVI's , some places are much better with service and food than others..and often for the same or similar prices.BTW 15% service charge seems to be the norm..and some still dont charge it ( thanks for a great meal and service last night at Omar's Fusion with no service charge).

Finally had lunch at Omar’s Fusion today. Pepperoni pizza was awful; Caesar salad and lobster quesadilla were okay. Service was glacial and there was an automatic 15% service charge added.

On the plus side, location is terrific. The couple next to us had Indian food, which was very good. Next time I would try that (not my favorite cuisine) or just get a burger.

Don't get the burger unless you like the frozen puck style burgers. Go for the Indian food...

Confused here....... are you asking ‘bad service and the food is worse’ ?? Or ‘bad service but the food is good and it’s an offset’ ??

I only eat the extremely good Indian at "Omar's Fusion"..usually Lamb Vindaloo..sometimes Chicken Tikka Masala..highly recommend trying their Nepalese Momos..as good as we get at our Himalayan restaurant in Sonoma..Back to the quiz.."If you think our service is bad..wait til you taste our food!"

Malcolm, what do you mean “back to the quiz”? My vote was Omar’s: extremely long wait and then lousy food! Very short, stocky waitress who basically abandoned the customers when kids came in after school.
