We dined in this beautiful restaurant last night. Although we didn't initially have the table we had requested, they professionally worked it out so we had the correct table for half our meal! It is like eating the most delicious food in an aquarium! The way the sea is lit up (at nite) means you can clearly sea the most... More

If you really don't care about money (not a value judgement, just a statement of fact) this is the place to go: the setting is amazing and the food is the best we had in Barbados. But the prices are just stupid and it's a fixed menu so not much you can do. There are lots of other places on... More

This is a top-end restaurant so expect it to be expensive. It has excellent service - I've never experienced so many people involved in serving - from the moment you step out of your car and hand your keys over to the valet. And the food is superb. A beautiful location for a romantic or celebration dinner.

This is a restaurant I always visit when in Barbados the venue is just amazing and quite magical. The food and service are of a consistent high level and priced accordingly but I consider it is worth every penny for that special occasion or just a really good night out. So don't go to two mediocre restaurants when you can... More

We dinned at The Cliff last week after I read so many amazing reviews and it did not disappoint. Walking through the entrance door, it feels very modern however as soon as you step out onto the terrace, it feels like a scene from Kings Landing in Game of Thrones. It's very dramatic. As it's such a special hotel, we... More

Had an amazing meal here last week. Arrived to find valet parking, and superb service. Had drinks on the upper floor with stunning views, then taken to our table on the lower cliff level. The food was stunning, we had the taster menu and a bottle of champagne. Great service, very relaxing and then coffee upstairs afterwards. Lovely to see... More

The location is to die for. The staff treat you like royalty and the food is awesome. We are well travelled and used to fine dining but this place comes top of our list by a mile. It is not cheap but worth every penny and then some.By sharing your experiences, you're helping travellers make better choices and plan their... More

No doubt the Cliff restaurant trades on it's location, but why shouldn't it ? There can be few as special locations for a coastal restaurant that include a continual view of stingrays and tarpon in their natural habitat. This time we didn't arrive early enough for a cocktail overlooking the whole cove, which was a shame. The food was as... More

This was by far the best meal we had on the island and the most expensive. But it's worth it. Exquisite seafood, wonderful succulent steaks and a view and ambience to die for with spotlights shining on the bay below highlighting the amazing fish display. An extensive wine list adds to the quality. A really romantic place you'll never forget.
