Pretty cool setting, right where the boats park. Staff is really nice and the place is gorgeous. A must-go restaurant on your outing in town.

What a place to watch the world go by. I even met the owner, Trish who gave me some tips on property buying on the Island. We spent three afternoons on the terrace overlooking the fishing boats, eating and drinking and just chilling to the gentle background music of local, calypso, Reggae and Soul/Tamla music. The Staff where great. Friendly... More

Found ourselves sitting here by the water watching the world go by, the fruit punch and the crab cakes were very nice but the coconut ice cream was the best ever. It was perfect. A fab place to stop and eat in a great setting, the host (possibly the owner) was lovely, she even took a photo for us. Couldn't... More

We had a wonderful evening at the Waterfront, the food was good, served with efficiency and charm and the live music by Clem and Coleen, fantastic! We danced to our favourite songs and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Good food and even better Daiquiris just the right spot to sit and watch the good folk of Bridgetown go about their daily business, and their wash rooms are air conditioned, best in town bar none.

A good restaurant in Bridgetown offering good food, good service at a good price - a rare combination on the island. Two out of the three is normal. Sitting by the water, enjoying good local food at a fair price with good service - what more do you want - and no i don't have shares in the business but... More

The ladies who serve are very friendly, the food looks amazing - although we did not eat there. The frozen cocktails are lethal but really really lovely!!!!! A really nice spot to sit, chill and take in Bridgetown.

Thought we would have lunch here as it seemed a nice location. The table was very wobbly and service was a bit slow to provide a menu. Thought the prices were extremely expensive so decided not to stay to eat.
