This was the scene at Ramshackle last Christmas Eve. A sad christmas present for all its loyal customers.

Apparently the property owners cancelled the lease, suddenly, on the operators. Possibiltiy that they are planning to reopen the location with their own restaurant. In any case, Ramshackle Bar is gone as of January 20, 2014 :(

We went here with our best friends back in November, and we fell in love with the place - and are now absolutely gutted that the doors have closed. We had such fun here, great food, the best strawberry daiquiris, and some of the best holiday memories - we count ourselves lucky that we were able to visit a few... More

Excellent meal in a laid back Bajan atmosphere. Visited several times at various times of the day, quiz night, on the beach for a beer having hired sunbeds and brolly from Ramshackle and a meal for 4. Not a posh venue but full of atmosphere and a lovely family run business. Will be back in 2014, but more often!!!

Suddenly not sure of what transpired. Was my favorite place in Barbados for beach and food and fun. I do hope that is opens up again this winter.

My wife and I rented a house just down the beach from Ramshackle for the second five days of our honeymoon in early August. We ended up spending pretty much every afternoon and early evening on the Ramshackle beach - it was just what the doctor ordered. The food is simple but fresh and delicious; we had lunch, dinner, and... More

We went for lunch and found the service quite good. The menu is simple but we found the food tasty. The view is breathtaking so we rented a couple beach chairs and an umbrella after lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon. I would recommend trying this rustic vibe restaurant.

If you are looking for the ultimate Barbados bar and beach experience, look no further! We have been coming to this bar for years and it is excellent. The fish is caught just off the beach and served in di bar. The banks are always smokin cold and the pie is excellent. This spot is where all the tourist boats... More

We visited the bar at quite a quiet time....We were met by Maxine & Pauline who made us both very welcome.The Rum punch is great and we had a great afternoon on the superb beach.The boats come quite close in so you can actually swim out to snorkel with the turtles.

This place is another Barbados Gem, right on the beach next to Lone Star. Sunbeds,parasols for hire on the beach right below this two level bar. Maxine and her son are excellent hosts and their homemade rum punch us to die for!!. Quiz night is on Monday at 8pm which is very good and great fun, with food vouchers as... More
