Mac’s Lobster Pizza Challenge, The Verdict Is…

Macs Pizza Bequia

The island of Bequia, part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, holds many treasures. Spectacular views, fascinating traditions and some great restaurants. This little island has an addictive charm and I catch myself thinking about it regularly.

Little over a month ago I wrote a post about Mac’s Pizza on Bequia, how I kept reading all these stunning reviews and something about a legendary lobster pizza. I asked those of you who had been to Mac’s if all this Hype was worth it. Everyone I heard from confirmed the praise. Well like any good journalist, I needed to do a little first hand research. So when our ship, the Diamant, dropped anchor in Admiralty Harbour off Bequia, you can be sure that Mac’s was on my “research” list.

DINNER TIME!

After a day of touring Bequia our group had worked up quite an appetite. I had seeded everyone’s mind with stories of the famous lobster pizza, so when it came time to hop in the dinghy and head to shore for dinner our destination was not in question.

Our dining group included the 4 bama babes, Crystal, Sandy, myself and we were able to talk Aubrey and Troy of the Diamant crew into joining us. We climbed the stairs to reach Mac’s open air dining room, sat at the table reserved for the Diamant group and quickly order up a round cold Caribs.

We tell our lovely waitress that we’ve heard stories about the legendary lobster pizza and that we had to see if all the hype was for real. She gave us an all knowing smile and headed back to the kitchen to relay our order. I was able to sneak back to the kitchen and snap a few shots of the pizzas being prepared. There’s no skimping on lobster for on these bad boys. These pies are completely loaded up with the delicious crustacean!

THE VERDICT

The pizzas arrived and the group was giddy with excitement. I remember hearing groans of satisfaction from around the table after people sunk their teeth into the slices. I can’t speak for everyone in our group but I thought the lobster pizza was fantastic and totally lived up to the hype. I wish I was sitting at a Mac’s table right now, throwing back a few Caribs and devouring some of that famous pie with my fellow Diamant passengers.

Just look at those chunks of juicy lobster!

I’d like to thank Judy, the owner of Mac’s, for my personal pizza. I’m sorry we weren’t able to meet Judy, I guess I’ll just have to make a return trip to Bequia! Who’s with me?

Cheers,

  1. Wow that pizza looks delicious rummy. do they deliver??

  2. You know you should be drinking Hairoon, not Carib, when in the Grenadines :) btw, Mac’s other pizzas are also fabulous–you’l have to go back and try them!

  3. Glad you enjoyed the pizza Ryan! Sorry I could not be there to greet you in person but there’s always a next time ……….

  4. Next time for sure Judy! I’ll have to do as Bear says and try some of your other great dishes.

    Fabian, I wish they did deliver but you can’t beat eating there right on the water in Port Elizabeth.

    Cheers!

  5. I feel like the wimpy kid that’s been left out all of these years! I’ve NEVER had Lobster Pizza!
    EVER!

    What have I done with my life? (And more importantly, what needs to happen so I can get my hands on that Pizza Pie?)

  6. We’ll have to head down to Bequia and grab a pie Big Kahuna! Visit some islands, eats some pizza, drink some beer…can’t be all that bad of a trip can it? Cheers!

    Ryan, I wish I was back at Mac’s with everyone enjoying a Carib and the lobster pizza. The pizza was truly amazing and I can’t wait to get back.

    We have dreams of Mac’s lobster pizza. It is mouth-watering wonderful, sort of heaven on a pizza pan. It is always the highlight of our Caribe trips, especially sailing on the s/v Mandalay out of Grenada. You might also try their Callaloo Soup – makes a great starter before the pizza. Since we have not been able to get there in a few years (we spend the sail time now on our own boat in Mexico), we had hoped to see a recipe on this site. Any way anyone can share…? Until we can return, we would sure like to try to recreate some luscious pizza. Ideas?

  9. Thanks for the comment Sharktank! I love Callaloo Soup, I didn’t have it at Mac’s but our chef aboard the S/V Diamant served it up and it was out of this world! I don’t have the recipe for Mac’s pizza, doubt she would give it to me even if I asked. Top secret!
