Sitting by the waterfront, watching people, taking in the view of Historic Bridgetown while dining at an historic location in Bridgetown. EVERYTHING they serve is great. It is so hard to choose if you have been there before, but so easy if it is your first time because you cannot make a mistake. The fishcakes, the fried fist melts, the... More

Over the years, the Waterfront Cafe has become an iconic establishment in Barbados. It is a wonderful restaurant right in the heart of Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison - Barbados' recently inscribed UNESCO World Heritage Site. Overlooking the Careenage, it offers a view of the Parliament Buildings, National Heroes Square and the two bridges from which Bridgetown derived its name.... More

We had great lunches here over a couple of weeks and watched the world go by but to really appreciate the Waterfront you need to go in an evening the atmosphere is brilliant the food and service good but the Jazz is absolutely awesome. Definitely recommend.

We went there after hearing it was the place to go. We sat outside and it was very beautiful. We went at the start of dinner before the jazz band started and it was getting busier as we stayed. The drinks we had were very good. The food we had was the flying fish with cou-cou and the pepperpot. We... More

We came her a couple of days ago and enjoyed some great flying fish and chips washed down with gallons of beer (Deputy - Yum!) Service was great and restaurant is superbly located by the river and parliament building. Recommended!

One of the only places to eat late at night in Bridgetown, great to eat by the scenic river when a lot of the surroundings in Barbados are not, despite being an amazing country to visit.
