Visited on 1 Dec, as we were there as part of the independence celebrations, staff were friendly & bar very clean, but the prices are a little inflated due to its prime location overlooking the harbour, visit every time we come back & can't fault the service, worth a stop off for a refreshing drink & also to take advantage...

We visited this establishment with a group of friends. The food is average, the accuracy of the bill was questionable and the bar prices charged (cash) varied. Two rum punches and a Banks beer - BD$50 and BD$30, both prices are HIGH for this basic bar type establishment. The upstairs view and location isn't worth it.

We stopped by here cuz the prices were a lil less than downstairs restaurant. What a mistake. Should of just had the beer but it was the upstairs view we wanted. The view and the beer was the only thing nice about this place. We ordered the mahi mahi and the happy hour special of 4 deputy beers. The fish... More

Nice view from the balcony, staff were friendly. My Salmon Salad was good but the sweet potato fries were raw. They did swap them for normal fries. The cost including 6 grilled prawns and 4 rum punches came to 120 BBD. A bit over priced and the GBP exchange rate didn't help.

Short walk around Bridgetown after our cruise shop docked here prior to our flights back to the UK. Stopped off here and made good use of the WiFi to catch up with family back home. On the list of soft drinks was "champagne kola" - very sweet and red - don't know what else to say about it! Very pleasant... More

The view of the Bridgetown marina is great. Table service is at Island pace. We only ordered drinks and we found the service to exceptionally slow. We were the only people there too. Had to go to the bar to pay our bill as nobody came by to see us for almost 45 mins

Stopped off for lunch/dinner and ordered the roti which was a total let down. The service was great and the staff friendly but the food let them down.

The cheese tastes plastic. The macaroni pie was bland. The plantain greasy. The chicken wings were deep fried and tasteless. The only decent food was the chicken roti. Rushed food, and average service.

We came into the bar at 6pm for drinks and received brilliant service from a polite funny waiter. His shift finished and it rapidly went down hill. We were asked to begin ordering drinks from the bar setting up a tab, we were told after one round that we were no longer allowed a tab. The barmaid seemed to be... More

Dear Macdon23, I am so sorry to hear of your disappointment, but it was a Monday night and Mondays is karaoke, On a karaoke night we do not do Blended drinks or table service, this is due to the fact that we sell all our drinks at a much lower price. Karaoke in Barbados is known for its cheap drinks... More

We called in for a beer. And as it was waterfront expected o be charged about twice the local price. There was a chalk board outside which showed Banks at 2 USD which is where we expected it to be. When I proffered a $5 US I was informed that the bill was $6 and when I questioned why it... More
