Superb Meal

The food at Naru was a culinary experience! The cold Cucumber soup, the Sushi, everything was delicious! Would make two reservations next time we travel to Barbados.

Was surprised to find such sophisticated food! I live in NYC and this restaurant could've been found there. It was a true blend of Asian and Bajan ingredients and flavors. I seriously had two of the best dishes I've ever eaten -- a pulled roast pork salad, and an asian inspired calamari and octupus salad. The pork was in this... More

Food superb as well as ambiance and service. I would highly recommend this restaurant right on the boardwalk in South Barbados near Accra Beach Hotel .

My fiancé & I went here for dinner on Valentine's Day, which was also the same day we got engaged. He had contacted the restaurant prior to our vacation (and proposal) so they had a great table right by the boardwalk & ocean for us. They were also able to accommodate the addition of my brother & his wife, which... More

First off, I would advise making a reservation. We didn't book ahead and instead just went to the restaurant at 6pm. We were just about accommodated as there were a lot of bookings for the evening. The staff were very polite and efficient and the hostess explained the menu very well. I ordered the shrimp and papaya salad...hands down one... More

Easy walk along the boardwalk from Accra resort. Ambiance was very nice. Food was good and nicely presented. Drinks seemed weak and not up to par with similar establishments. IMHO, its location inflates the menu prices.

I absolutely love this restaurant and have been quite a few times. The food is delicious and to a high standard, i'd go as far to say it is the best sushi restaurant on the island and is great from an international standard too. My only negatives are that the service can be so slow. On each occasion it has... More

The amount of eating places are incredible but good ones few and far between. This is one of the exceptions, that you will enjoy, because of food, service and location. Nothing needs to be added except the Hagen-Daz Ice cream in Barbados. Yes! Make a reservations or go hungry.

Front start to finish this was an excellent place. The hostage was very friendly and the owner was very welcoming and a great presence in the restaurant. The food selection was amazing from the Sushi menu to the appetizers, entree dessert and even drink. Will definitely visit again!

We were walk-ins last night and were tempted by the fish choices on the dinner menu. There is another separate sushi menu which we didn't try. We found it so hard to make up our minds that we swapped dishes halfway through so we could truly as much as possible. The seared tuna was perfect and the mahi mahi was... More
