This relatively small restaurant was pretty full when we arrived and not having a reservation we were offered seats at the long bar which wasn't an issue for us at all. The place was quite buzzy and upbeat. There was a good choice of cocktails that were served promptly. We chose chicken satay and chickens wontons to start and when... More

Across the street from our hotel and the food was good and relatively not too expensive . It offered various local and european dishes but like all restaurants in Barbados the wine was mega expensive

I know the reviews for this place are mixed but please don't take any notice of the negative ones. It's great! Just across the road from our hotel (the Tamarind). Great service, great menu, great atmosphere. I had the Bajan Welsh rarebit to start and my husband had the veggie samosas special. Both were fantastic. Delicate flavours, and really fresh.... More

We visited here two years ago and our second trip was just as good! Food was lovely! Salmon kebabs were so tasty and fresh. Service with a smile! Barry was excellent! Cocktails too were good- try the June Bug! Service charge was expensive but I think that's standard on the island! A lovely first night on this amazing island

From the outside, this restaurant doesn't look much - in fact it is hard to tell if it is open, however a pleasant surprise awaits inside. Quite a different theme to all other restaurants. The restaurant has no windows, which sounds bizarre given the Caribbean location, however being on the land side of the road means there are no views... More

What a great little place! Unique decor and ambience. We've been twice since our arrival, sat at the bar both times and really enjoyed the atmosphere, cocktails and small plates and nibbles. No doubt another visit is on the cards soon!

Thank 22DickN
