Best lobster I have ever had, lovely atmosphere and most incredible sunset we have ever seen. The waitress was just lovely and didn’t rush us even though we took a while to finish our mains because we were so full! This was one of our...favourite restaurants of our whole holiday, food so fresh and the most incredible setting if you go at sunset. Will definitely be returningMore

This is an amazing setting and should be (like the Seashed down the road) booked out on location only. However, food was very average and exceptionally over priced even for Barbados which says a lot given is £6 for a coffee most places! . Food...was unremarkable and most of specials not available and place completely lacked atmosphere.More

A table of 4 we had a reasonable meal at a good table all well. Bill arrived 487.30 bd Including a 10% surcharge already added. I left 245 USD ie 2. To 1 as is the case all over Barbados. I left for the car...leaving the girls looking at belts and bangles. Only to find out in the car that the owner had informed them that I had underpaid and took a further 20 USD from them. I returned to ask how that could be, to be informed that he did his own exchange rate Clearly at a much more advantageous rate to himself. When I returned to the villa I checked the exchange rate. 245USD. =. 490bd I will not go there again. I suggest you pay in local currency to be safe.More

Ordered scallop dinner with chips n salad. 4 and half desecrated scallops covered in jerk sauce. Chips undercooked. Salad dressing awful. Sent it back and got a freezer burned steak absolutely gross. Chef should find another job. Setting was beautiful. X

Many items on the menu were not available, one had not been available since last July. The Specials Board was not priced and some items simply poor value for money. Food was average once I had found something they actually had. Very average service. Basically...left feeling ripped off. Won’t return.More

Really wanted to like this place as the settings were lovely but the food was way below average and the price extortionate. The wait staff were slow but nice, however the manager (if he is that) was crazy rude, made us feel really uncomfortable. Would...avoid and try somewhere where you’re welcomed and get better food for a fairer price.More

We go to bombas every time we come to Barbados. Usually we have a lovely , tasty meal and whilst interaction with the owner is hit and miss , the food always makes up for it. On our current holiday , we made the trip...to bombas , taking a taxi from St. Peter , I usually have the veg curry and it was nowhere near as tasty and husband has the chicken curry which was luke warm and had to be sent back. The owner, Wayne was quite surly and after our shared , over priced starter (in our opinion ) barked at us , making sure we were aware it’s cash only ! Meal for two cost £60 which was one shared platter , chicken curry and a veg curry and one local beer ! The girls were lovely .. but that’s the only thing that was.More

We arrived as a party of six on a very busy weeknight, without a booking. We were welcomed by Wayne, the charismatic owner who quickly found us a table. Food was excellent with a good selection of local dishes and specials, the grilled chicken was...fresh and succulent and the pickled octopus very tasty. Cocktails were fresh and delicious and the wine selection excellent. Look forward to returning soon!More

Arrived early for a booking, welcoming staff, friendly service, filled up quickly from 6pm onwards . Introduced to the 10 Saints beer, most enjoyable. We chose chicken wings as a starter, fish curry, very tasty and enjoyable. Wonderful atmosphere, adjoining table was celebrating a 30th...birthday. Clearly a popular destination.More

Really good meal, garlic bread, shrimps to start, barracuda and Black/blue chicken, great 10 Saints beer, and ice cream. A bit pricey, so not a regular place to go, but for once a week, perfect.

Definitely would make a reservation if planning on eating after 5:00 / 5:30p. Fills up fast & there are not a lot of tables.
