The Cliff

Open 7 days a week December to May, June to November, Monday to Saturday. Office Hours 9am to 5pm.

Fantastic Saturday night out. Had eaten here last year and whilst it’s expensive, it is worth it in a funny kind of way. Food is gorgeous, service unfaultable, and the location is just the best on the island.

The Tides

Reviewed By John G - London, United Kingdom

Had the scallops starter which was delicious and different fish options as mains. Good sized portions and we could not manage a sweet but sat and savoured the view for an hour or so over a glass of wine - the restaurant is by the sea and one looks over the lights of the bay as well as catching sight of the liners coming from And going to
Bridgetown. Service is efficient and
Friendly.

Bajan Blue at Sandy Lane

The atmospheric Bajan Blue restaurant is perfect for relaxed beachside dining. Located on the Lower Terrace, this informal restaurant offers all day dining and a mélange of European, Caribbean and Asian influenced cuisine. The elaborate Sunday Brunch is a must, as are the spectacular themed buffet evenings. Other features include the modern wine bar, sushi station and state-of-the-art grill.

Reviewed By Lorraine H - Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

We were told this hotel served an amazing Sunday buffet lunch. Well no disappointment it was amazing, fresh, everything you could imagine to eat and lovely service. There is only so much one can eat even if you are there for a couple of hours. The quality is assured and we had a wonderful time. Consider the amount you pay it should be good but we all know that's not a guarantee. This was special. The hotel and Seating area is lovely and the views amazing.

A Lovely Beach Bar and Restaurant located on the quit beach of Fitts Village on the west Coast of St.James.That serves Lunch,happy hours and dinner. The bar is open until late and the happy hours on Fridays and Sundays are incredible with original cocktails and complementary finger food. For Lunch is served also Pizza while the dinner with all homemade pastas is elegant casual,in a romantic candlelight atmosphere.

Reviewed By Jilllian - Liverpool, United Kingdom

Right on the beach. Enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar before dinner. Pavarotti’s favourite dish was the pasta stuffed with pear and Gorgonzola- I can see why, it was absolutely delicious (covered in a creamy sauce so not the healthiest option). Everybody very nice. Well worth a visit.

Zaccios

Reviewed By Aaron F

I think that everyone that gave this pizza a good review has been seriously deprived in their life when it comes to pizza.
Despite, Reading the other bad reviews the group I was with decided to order the pizza anyways. Mainly because so few places in Barbados delivered to where my family and I were staying.
Being from Canada I have ate several pizzas over the span of my life and I have my share of good ones and bad ones.
This pizza clearly takes first place as the worst pizza I have ever had in my life.
Even the worst frozen supermarket pizza I have had was better than this pizza.
Problem with this pizza include:
1. Crust was like a piece of cardboard made from dough. I don’t quite understand how it is possible to make crust so poorly, but they have mastered this technique.
2. Very little cheese.
3. Very little sauce…but maybe that is a good thing as it tastes like sweet ketchup.
4. Little toppings, that don’t taste good.
5. Ordered ahead of time and it still took 1 .5h hours to get it.
6. Showed up cold.
7. Ended up costing $25 US a pizza.
Do yourself a favour, if you want pizza while in Barbados, go to Bert’s Restaurant, they know how to do a decent thin crust pizza properly. If you want to eat at a Bajan restaurant that maybe close to where you are staying, get chicken or fish, those dishes aren’t bad.

The Beach House Restaurant & Bar

Located on the ‘Platinum Coast’ of Barbados, we are a unique beach front venue with much to offer. Whether it is a big celebration or an intimate affair, the Beach House can be hired exclusively, semi-privately or in conjunction with other Reservations.Our lunch and dinner choices include canapés, a la carte and buffet menus with a wide selection of wines and cocktails to choose from.

Reviewed By Evo0216 - Montreal, Canada

Setting is fabulous! Was looking forward to our luncheon based on reviews but found the reception and table service uncharacteristically “grumpy” this day, and the food not too memorable. Could not find the fish in the fish cakes, mostly doughy, bu presented nicely nonetheless. My grilled catch was very dry. Maybe we did not pick a good day to visit and hope this improves for the next visitors experience.

Cariba Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By Barbara B - Derby, United Kingdom

We visited twice again in two weeks for the lovely Asian/Caribbean food that the chef takes great pride in.
On our first visit there was live music which gave a great atmosphere and although the service was very slow ,my main dish of kingfish was one of the culinary highlights of my holiday. On our second visit service was excellent and my starter of Brie bacon and walnut salad with golden apple dressing was fabulous.
The wine choice s good and less expensive than lots of restaurants.
If you are in this area you should visit at least once!

Scarlet

Reviewed By Jane W

My daughter and I had been recommended Scarlet by friends and what a delight it was!! The cocktails were fantastic and the venue itself was a vision of nostalgia in black and red!! Everywhere you look there’s a memory to be had. The staff are delightful and very helpful. We opted to share starters of olives, focaccia, olive oil and balsamic and spinach and ricotta croquettes, mouthwatering!! For mains we both had curries, prawn and chicken - stunning!! Too full for the scrumptious desserts, but next time!!! Very reasonably priced and we will definitely be back on our next trip! Thank you for a wonderful meal and evening!!

Mr Vic Bar

Mr Vic is a roadside bar situated in Payne's bay a mile south of Holetown.Though not fine dining, Mr Vic has over the last 4 yrs established a reputation for serving excellent food at affordable prices, with a choice of both Carribbean & British fare. Mr Vic caters for groups as well as couples, families and singles. A large variety of local and international cocktails are mixed by Mr Vic himself ( arguably the best barman on the West coast)Live music is also played. Steel pan on a Thursday & Fab Jazz on a Sunday

We were staying in a hotel opposite,but only wanted a one course dinner,so walked here. An inauspicious local 'shack' but seemingly with some OK reviews,it was about 40% full but many had arrived at the same time,so our 1 beer soon turned into 3 as...MoreI am reluctant to dignify your review with a response!!! Beyond referring to your remark RE" Thrown out of your hotel" I imagine this is something you have experienced many times!!!
