I took my sister here for her birthday. We did dinner. It was a night in the week but still I expected that there would be more people in the restaurant. I in no way wanted a crowd but I expected more than one other set of people (4) having dinner. They left soon after we got there, so we... More

Best beachside dining I've ever had. Authentic, amazing Italian fare. Try the pear and Gorgonzola pasta. On par if not better than what you'll find in Italy. Leo runs a tight ship. Ask for the Rum punch!!!

After failing to find a suitable place in Holetown for a Mother's Day lunch (most places were either closed per normal on Sunday, booked solid, or charging a premium to treat Mom to a meal), we drove a bit down the coast and stumbled on Il Tempio, and we were SO HAPPY we did! We were greeted by the warm... More

This is a great bar on Fitts Village Beach and Leo is a great barman with a huge selection of delicious cocktails. The restaurant is unfortunately usually quite empty but that shouldn't stop you going there as it is in an excellent spot on the beach and the food is excellent, especially the gnocchi with squid and rocket.

Perfect Beach restaurant. Food was stunning to match the location. We have been here three times in 10 days as there was so much choice on the menu. Cannot recommend it highly enough. The hosts are brilliant and Leroy and the team are brilliant. If you are in Barbados, you need to go to Il Tempio... you won't regret it.

Food was really good and reasonable price in a spot with amazing views, right on the beach. Beach bar was welcoming enough, though some of the speaker wires etc above the shutters could do with a bloody good dust, before it drops into the glasses below! I just notice these things!!
