We arrived in BGI from Union around noon and were delighted to find the Air Canada desk open so we checked our bags and grabbed a cab with orders for the Waterfront Cafe! We arrived in prime time but we were still able to get a table outside. Even though it was busy we were still served in a timely... More

I visited here for lunch. Nice setting overlooking the harbour. Ordered chicken on focaccia. It came complete with a caterpillar crawling around the lettuce. When I complained to the manager, she grudgingly apologised. I got the impression it is a regular occurrence and that she didn't care as she (correctly) assumed that she wouldn't be seeing me again.

Had a very nice lunch at this restaurant beside the Careenage in Bridgetown. This is my favourite restaurant in Bridgetown. Food and service is very good.

The food was quite minimal (quantity wise and nothing to write home about). The price was very high, but I guess it is right in the heart of the tourist area of Bridgetown. We sat near a couple who had to ask the waitress what town they were in! (I guess they'd just got off a cruise ship). The inside... More

Waterfront cafe is sublime, the food is outstanding and has been consistently so for over 20 years. We return every year and Waterfront NEVER disappoints. The location in Bridgetown is delightful with the yachts and boats bobbing on the water in the careenage as you eat. The music on Thursday (jazz), Friday (motown) and Saturday (calypso) provides a party atmosphere... More

We had a pleasant surprise with this place. We ordered a pasta seafood and a seafood bake. Both delicious! Our compliments to the chef! Desserts were also superb! Ambience is very nice right on the marina...and staff were great. Romantic setting for couples, but would suit family as well.

We visited the Waterfront Cafe the views from the upper floor were fabulous, just people watching. We ordered two roti's for lunch which arrived 40 minutes later, only because the waitress forgot to give the order to chef. When it did arrive my chicken roti was cold and was sent back, my partner had a fish roti. We would have... More

An enjoyable and tasty meal served with most courteous service. Our seating overlooked the Marina and the area was the hive of activity. A "down to earth atmosphere".

My partner and I paused here briefly for drinks and a snack. Lovely sitting and watching the boats and life passing by. Staff were attentive and efficient.
