Beautiful waterfront location

A lovely evening with friends outside overlooking the sea. Cocktails and food delicious. Wine expensive. Service good.

We visited as a party of 4 at sunset and asked to sit next to the sea. Although lots of time for dinner and the sunset, it strikes me as tacky when a high end restaraunt tells you that you have to be out of your table by 8:30 when you make a reservation for 6 PM. Valet parking is... More

Booked in advance an early table on the terrace to watch the sun go down before ordering. "Must have it back by 8.30" OK. Arrived 6pm - can't find booking-I look at list and there we are! "I'm going to let you have a table on the terrace" good because that's what I booked." We must have it back by... More

Great location. Good food , not exceptional. Service way too cool. Zero personality from staff. Mentioned this in non confrontational manner to Manager on leaving who defended his staff by saying ' some of them bring their personal problems to work' Well that's ok then. I've just spent € 230 on a fine dining experience to be served by robots!... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the entire dining experience at Cin Cin! Love the modern, yet warm and inviting ambiance. Cocktails were a bit too tasty! The meal was wonderful, delectable. Staff were friendly, efficient, and attentive but not cloyingly so. We had wonderful seating, oceanfront on the terrace and at sunset, which was the icing on the cake. Highly recommend!

My then fiancee, now husband and I ate at Cin Cin's last week as part of our wedding rehearsal evening. It was hands down one of the best meals and nicest evenings we've ever had. We were part of a group of 9, so not the smallest group but nothing was too much of an effort for the staff and... More

Arrived around 40 mins before our booking (as advised by The Cliff on their website) to enjoy cocktails in the lounge. On arrival some confusion over our booking, the reason being we were " too early!" When we explained we would like a drink before we were told in no uncertain terms that our table was ready and we could... More

Cin Cin (pronounced Chin Chin) by the Sea was the last of the many great restaurants we dined at on a recent trip to Barbados and if not the best it was a close second. We were very fortunate to get a table for two at the railings overlooking the ocean when another diner cancelled their reservation - I hope... More

I didn't get the impression they were trainees like a previous review. There is some billing working going on next door which you... More

Modern, fashion, nice ambiance restaurant with good food and excellent view, right on the beach. This restaurant is very different to the others on the island. Book in advance.
