Food is very tasty and well-presented. Make sure you get a beach-side table, as ambiance declines significantly the further away from the water you are. Service is good, cocktail selection is good. A little pricey for what you get, but that's not unique to Naru.... Since you're eating outside... read more

We ate here twice between March 10-18. Right on the boardwalk w/ excellent views if you are lucky to get one of the waterfront tables 60 ft. from the water. Service was excellent. The hostess Ronya remembered us when we returned the second time and made excellent recommendations. The owner Lisa Taylor came to our table to chat. The first... More

Great menu, friendly service, epic food - I had the blackened mahi mahi, and was really disappointed when I'd finished it, it was so delicious.

My first time at this restaurant. I went with my family Richard and Movita Field who live on the island. The food was amazing, my taste buds were having a party all of their own. Cannot find any faults with this restaurant. The owners and staff are brilliant. Would highly recommend this restaurant whilst on holiday in Barbados. Thank you... More

Macadamia crusted barracuda was an excellent choice from a mouth-watering menu that included many Japanese dishes, as well as Pan Asian. Service was friendly, informative but not intrusive, and we were pleased to meet our chef, Barry Taylor, after the meal, to thank him for a lovely meal, and to ask him how he made the delicious sauce that accompanied...

The ambience of the restaurant inside and out was great. The greet and wait staff were cordial and helpful and made the dining experience a pleasure. The quality of fish used for sushi and sashimi was top grade and each plate was well presented. The dessert in a jar was "to die for" and the cinnamon/sugar coated mini donuts were... More

Naru exceeded my expectations. We waited at the bar whilst our table was prepared and the barman was excellent - chatty, attentive and friendly - he made the best rum sours I have ever had. The waiting staff in the restaurant were exceptionally well mannered and really tried hard to make everything perfect for us. We ordered A LOT of... More

Nice enough place. Staff very friendly. However they took nearly half an hour to take our order and a long wait thereafter for the food to arrive. I ordered a special of bison (buffalo). Very tasty but the quantity was a bit too small. The creme brulee was nice but could have had a bit more of the sugar coating... More

We arrived very late to our reservation and we're happily accommodated in record time. Needless to say service was exceptional and so was the food.
