VJ’s – a required port-of-call

EDITOR: I was pleased to see that you have highlighted VJ’s in SEARCHLIGHT’s Tuesday, November 14, 2017 editiion.  My wife and I have visited St Vincent several times in the past few years, and VJ’s has become a required port-of-call.  For us, it’s the rotis (we haven’t tried the souse) and the welcome from Julia and her staff, who have looked after us so well. We are amazed at the hard work put in to cope with the seemingly never-ending queue of people each lunchtime.

We love the atmosphere and welcome we have received when visiting the Caribbean generally, but St Vincent and the Grenadines is special for us, with the distinctive characteristics of each island.  This year, we added Union Island to the list, having previously stayed at Canouan and Bequia, as well as St Vincent itself and calling in at Mayreau, Mustique and the amazing Tobago Cays on day visits.

We won’t be making it in 2018, but we will be back again in the future to meet the many friends we have made – too many to mention – though an exception must be made for Denroy and James – it was those two who introduced us to VJ’s several years back.
