After a long wait for food it turned out to be inedible and I sent it back. The lady owner was very courteous about it and keen to put it right but she needs a new chef and some better waiting staff

We have been there a few times over the years and the experience is pretty consistent. Great vista (especially outside on the 2nd floor), pretty good food and slow service even by Bajan standards. So this is not the place to go if you have to get back to your cruise ship in a hurry. That being said, the service... More

We ate here twice in February, because it was convenient. The service was extremely slow. The second time, we were about to walk out, when our drinks finally arrived. The food is average, but that's all I expect from a restaurant like this, but the service and the kitchen need to improve their speed.

We went here twice during February, and each time we went we were disappointed. Both times the service was poor and the food was just average for the price. I have the feeling that their kitchen and service staff feel they do not have to try hard to please customers because of their location. Admittedly it is in one of... More

Went there to have a full meal but finally left after having only had a beer. Service extremely slow. Waitresses ignoring us. We must say that the manager was working very hard to get us waited on, but it didnt work... Too bad, the location is amazing. Overcharged us for the beers, saying that the sign at the door should...

Stopped for a light lunch and a cold beer on our visit into Bridgetown. After reading about it on trip advisor we certainly were not disappointed! From being greeted by the hostess to settling the bill the service was A 1. Chose the island beer 10 Saints as love craft beers and hadn't tried. Really quite good, I think the... More

My kids love the burgers and fries and if you're lucky you might see a turtle or two,the yachts returning to harbour add that special touch.

This was by far my favorite meal we had while on vacation, and the owner Sue was incredibly helpful and lovely. Everything we had was delicious, but the desserts were out of this world. We had candied papaya over coconut ice cream and a coconut carrot cake. I highly recommend heading into the city for a meal there and you... More
