I've only stopped for drinks here when I've been into Bridgetown but it is ideal for that! It is right on the careenage and next to the bridge that gives the place it's name. It's an ideal spot to stop for a cold bottle of banks and get out of the heat of the town.

We have just eaten at the waterfront, the service was second to none,perfect, I had the steak, it was cooked to perfection,my husband had the shrimp,so large and tasty, we had three courses each and two round of drinks all came under £100.00 pound, you get the choice to be seated in or outside, can't wait to return.

We always come here every time we visit Barbados, this time with our young children. Lovely position in Bridgetown, and nice to people watch and look at the fishing boats/yachts. The food is very good and there is a good selection on the menu. The staff are friendly and the service food. Inside the cafe the walls are adorned with... More

Away from the hussling taxi drivers and pushing of Broad Street of Bridgetown is a pleasant place where we had a great fish lunch. The view is decent, overlooking the water and a clock tower. Food is reasonably priced and the c.4 waitresses who served us were all lovely and smiley albeit a slow. That's Barbados I guess!

Book ahead for a table outside for lunch, enjoy the view of Bridgetown , just a short walk across the bridge, the fishing boats and catamarans coming and going right by your table. Busy, busy, busy, with cruise ship people, tourists and locals that make reservations a must if you don't want to wait for a table. We have been... More

Having stopped here previously for beer, we thought we would try the food. The location is good with boats back and forth. Due to the heat its nicer to eat outside. We ordered simple dishes which were nice but a little pricey for what you actually get. I suppose the location is also what you pay for. Service was both... More

We went for lunch and the food was good but portions were small. Pricey for what is was. We sat outside and watched the boats. Inside seemed to be warmer than outside. Service was attentive. Wouldn't go out of my way to go here.

We went on the back of a recommendation and had a great night. It was suggested that we book in advance but as it happened there was a severe thunderstorm between 6pm & 8pm which unfortunately reduced numbers but there was still a good atmosphere. Jazz band was great, very versatile. Food was also excellent and a good mix of... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch in between shopping. We enjoyed the food and the view was wonderful. We got to watch fellow shoppers as well as watch the cruise ships come in.
