Great dinner, a bit outdated

We visited for dinner, In our fist attempt to visit the place they said they were fully commited and we decided to come back the following day. They were having a happy hour and it was kind of slow. You can walk to the beach, which my daughter love. The food, dessert and wine was excellent... read more

the food was excellent although a little pricey for the portion size, excellent service and a view out to sea while you eat, we went in the evening which meant it was dark but it was lit up and was very romantic, we had fun dancing about at the table to the music from the jolly roger as it passed...

It's location on the beach is also idyllic. All the dishes are great - pasta is freshly made, thesis courses outstanding. Also the menu, staff and surroundings are... More

We had tried all day to book a table but were unable to get through on the phone so decided to chance it. On arrival the owner said she had a table. Another couple arrived 2 secs later and they were turned away because they were 'busy'Only 4 tables were occupied in a fairly large restaurant. The food was very... More

My friends and I ate here this evening. Every dish way made perfectly and was most definitely homemade. The tomato soup is fantastic, the gnocchi was cooked exactly the way it should be. The atmosphere was the best part, I would definitely recommend this restaurant. For this side of the island the prices are more then reasonable for the quality... More

The food was so good we had to go back twice! The owner, Leo was such an interesting guy. Some people from Waves Hotel had seen a turtle laying eggs in the sand just in front of the beach restaurant. Unfortunately we weren't so lucky. It must have been amazing to witness. We would certainly recommend the Italian cuisine

The tomato soup is the best I ever had in any restaurant. Bread balls fried and soaked in the thick soup is heavenly. Catch of the day was well grilled. The French wine [white] matched it well. I am not a dessert person. The service was very friendly and caring. The owner came to us and spoke to us. Rest... More

I have been in Barbados for several months and Il Tempio is my favorite restaurant. Location is postal card, the catch of the day with cherry tomatoes delicious. The tiramissu is awsome. I am lucky to come often and last Wed night the turtle nesting was unforgettable experience.

My boyfriend and I visited Il Tiempo after being recommended by a friend. Well; the relaxed recommendation didn't do it justice. We were greeted as soon as we arrived and shown our table which was pretty much on the beach. Throughout our visit we heard the waves peacefully break. We shared a lovely bottle of red wine and couldn't believe... More
