However, I do not want to, in any way, not accept responsibility for any form of miscalculation/misinformation on my part... read more

Loved this place, excellent Asian inspired cuisine and perfect service. Was invited to relax and enjoy the music and atmosphere after the meal - it was lovely not to be rushed out after finishing as son often happens in restaurants.

This is a must for anyone who enjoys sushi while traveling to barbados. We eat sushi often and have eaten at some of the top japanese restaurants in new york. This was delectable. The drinks and the dessert were also five star. I called ahead to let them know we were celebrating our one year anniversary and the table was... More

Lots of asian and sushi dishes, probably the best on Barbados, so if you're looking for sushi or asian/japanese food in Barbados you need to go here.

We always like to eat at Naru when in Barbados, although we stay on the West Coast, it's always worth driving down to Hastings on the South Coast to eat at this lovely restaurant. There is such a variety of dishes to choose from that you are spoilt for choice as to what to eat. The food I have to... More

Sadly after we gave the waiter our payment which we had counted twice, he returned to say we were 10 US dollar's short and that we only gave him 70 US when in fact we know we gave him 80 US. Then he said he would return with change which should have been 6.00 US which is 12 bajan dollars... More

I'm sorry, but I have to call you out on your dishonest (or maybe uniformed) review. Let's just focus on the facts: -You claimed to have given the server $80 US, (the "server" was actually the assistant manager) he carried the bill to the cashier, who at that time was one of the owners. Facts are, you gave 5 bills.... More

A seaside resto featuring an Asian-fusion menu, with a wide range of choices all delivered with panache and excellent service. We have enjoyed celebrations of all sorts here (and they always remember to ask if this reservation is for a celebration of some kind) and intend to return frequently.

Brilliant hidden gem on the island of Barbados. Visited for an evening meal this week. The sushi was incredible (as good as sushi samba in London) tasting fresh as you can get. The setting is perfect, like a number of top restaurants literally on the beach of the west coast. The Asian twist is brilliant too. We started off with... More

A treat in store for anyone who goes there. Very popular for good reason the service food and setting are excellent. TIP: Book to get the best sea view tables. TIP: Be adventurous - you never know till you've tried it. We had the Chef special starter which we shared and the 8oz steak which we also shared. The waiter... More
