We have been visiting Barbados for many years,so whilst we were there in December we chose the Cliff for our first wedding anniversary celebrations. I called the restaurant prior to our holiday to pre book a table, to be told you have to book months before to get a waterside table. On the evening of our reservation we went with... More

One of the best restaurants in Barbados. It never disappoints. Watch for the large tarpons swimming near the rocks.

Out second meal at The Cliffs restaurant and once again, it did not fail to impress. From the second you arrive you are treated like royalty. Staff are friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We were seated in a comfortable lounge over the sea for pre-dinner cocktails. The view is breathtaking and on occasions overwhelming. To be able to sit at the... More

My wife was celebrating a very special birthday on this evening so we went to this restaurant because we were told it is the best on the island. First, I have to tell you it is very expensive, $265 Barbados for 2 courses. However, the two courses we had were superb. It was also the most elegant restaurant we have... More

This restaurant is spectacular in every way - view, atmosphere, service, food. Definitely in the top five places I've ever eaten. The way the sea is lit and the place is arranged on the cliff is ingenious and quite magical. Expensive but worth it. Try to book a table on the lowest terrace if you can.

You will have an excellent time at this restaurant and I would recommend it for a special occasion. You can go through an awful lot of money in the restaurant with top notch food or the smart money is to eat and drink in the bar which is more affordable!!

Visited whilst on holiday with a group of friends. We normally visit Grenada at this time of year but we're unable to do so this year. My impressions of Barbados in general contrast with Grenada which is a truly laid back and friendly location. By contrast I found Barbados rather pretentious and "touristy" and the staff rather more reserved but... More

Beautiful setting, built to maximise the effect. Service friendly and attentive, but best of all, the food was outstanding. Not cheap at $130 per head for two courses but if you can afford it, even if just for a special occasion, you will not be disappointed. Have fun!
