Great food, atmosphere, nice music in the background, right on the beach. What more could one ask for. When you go ask for Keymar! Great service!

The wait staff are very attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu to offer you... More

I've learned over the years of visiting Barbados in February that you need to plan ahead an make reservations before leaving home if you want to be able to pick the places you eat. You would think being a solo traveler would make it easier as you can squeeze us anywhere, even the bar. Not the case in Barbados. Most... More

We had dinner tonight at Naru. The ambience on the with the ocean as a back drop is unbeatable. The dinner did not disappoint either. We had a beautiful 2 hour dinner. The three of us ordered different dishes with some sushi appetizers and everything was just outstanding. We will be back before the end of our trip. Thanks to... More

We arrived with no reservation but they were happy to accommodate us. We had a sushi appetizer and an entree which were both delicious. The services was impeccable, kind and attentive.

Six of us frequented this establishment for dinner, and my food was generally disappointing though to be fair others in the group enjoyed the meal. The service from the moment we arrived was excellent. We were shown to our table, a rail table would have been nice but we were a party of six and the logistics of six at... More

Great location, right on the boardwalk, super friendly service & excellent fusion cuisine. By far the best food we had on the island. Would go back in a flash.

Naru is a must if you are dining on the south coast of Barbados. Even if you have any concerns about your liking for a pan-asian menu, you won't have after visiting Naru. We have been dining at Naru in January for each of the last few years and it never fails to impress, so much so that after our... More

I had dinner with some girlfriends last night who absolutely love sushi and we had no regrets. We were running a bit late, hostess was not too pleased when we arrived but nevertheless that didnt stop us from enjoying the evening. The sushi was delicious, value for money spent, excellent service from the guys, decor was fine, the music and... More

This was my 5th visit to Barbados and I have eaten in all the best restaurants, e.g. The Cliff, Tides, Sandy Lane, Cariba, Lone Star (not very good but always gets good reviews) We went to this restaurant as it was close to our hotel and was not expect too much. The starters included a lot of sushi/sashimi, which is... More
