If you like excellent food but worry about the price this is the place for you. The food was as good as any restaurant in Barbados. After our meal I sought out the chef to congratulate him. It doesn't have the location or panache of the 'posh' places but if you are happy with a typical Bajen experience and not... More

This is the first review I have written for a very long time of frequenting restaurants around the World, but I felt compelled this time. In the dozen or so times I have visited Barbados, Cariba has always been one of my favourite restaurants. So much so that my wife booked the restaurant twice on our 2 week holiday. On... More

The restaurant is situated in a typical Caribbean type house, with a large veranda. It's not beachfront like lots of the bigger named restaurants in the area, but the food and service is as good as, if not better than its local competition. Plenty of options on the menu, for all three courses. My wife had the chicken satay to... More

Excellent Bajan cuisine, a hidden gem. Cannot belive I have not made it here before now. I will be back. Chef cannot be more helpful, staff friendly and efficient. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Cariba felt more established and comfortable with itself this time around - so much so that we went back within the week! Local young staff were a joy, and even though there was a bit of a wait, this did not feel like a problem. The two curries (shrimp and chicken) were beautifully presented, and the local catch of the... More

We have been visiting this area of Barbados regularly now for 7 years and feel robbed by ourselves that we have never been before! Great service and amazing food!! As our driver Livingstone said on the way to Cariba "this restaurant is something special" and he was not wrong. Look forward to visiting you again in December.

Sometimes the service is slow but it is worth the wait. If you are pressed for time just tell you waiter.

This was our fifth visit to Cariba and it still retains its lovely charm and rustic environment. Yet again the food and service were excellent and our kids really enjoyed the home made burgers on the kids menu. This is a must when visiting Barbados and offers a great alternative to the other high end restaurants on the west coast,... More
