Lovely restaurant in a super position

The restaurant is attractively designed. We had a waterfront table overlooking the sea which made it special. The service was good and the food was delicious. The restaurant was fairly quiet due to our visit bring in June.

You don't hear a lot of chatter on-island about this spot, but it was one of our favorites. White on white. On white. Seaside suspended deck. A+ cocktail lounge. Very romantic and food that pleases the most discerning palate. Service was on point. The vibe was upscale but relaxed. I can't say enough good about this place.

The restaurant itself looks smart but frankly is so minimalist that it lacks any Bajan character . The menu also is hardly Bajan, more like Mediterranean but doesn't unfortunately meet Mediterranean standards. The service was also poor . One of our party had a wine glass that had obviously been recently chipped causing a splinter to escape into her mouth... More

We are sorry that your experience did not meet with your expectations but are somewhat surprised that it took so long for you to respond. The musician you liked hasn't performed for almost a month. The wine glass is an unfortunate occurrence but the Riedel glasses that we use are quite fragile and this sort of thing that can regrettably... More

The food was good, but the service was horrible. We went on a Monday evening and gave the hotel notice of a special occasion we were celebrating - not a single word or mention of it upon arrival or departure; meh didn't really bother us. If you've had dinner by the water on any other island then the ambiance is... More

Happy that you enjoyed our cuisine dining with us Monday evening. We are at a loss about the oversight on the special occasion you were celebrating because this is something that when noted upon reservation we relay to our kitchen and our front of house so we can only assume that there was a breakdown at some point when the...

PRICEY! We decided on a nice place for my birthday dinner so we got the fine dining experience in Barbados and it was all well worth it. The view was superb and they had a complimentary dessert with a sparkler as a candle for my birthday, it was amazing! My rare yellow tuna was delicious. My bf got the salmon... More

The location of this restaurant is fantastic. We arrived a little early for our table but nothing was too much trouble. The oxtail and porcini risotto was to die for and the service impeccable. It was pricey - the bill for 3 of us came to over BDS1000 but worth every penny although definitely a special treat!

Only to be told that the table had been rebooked for 8.30 we resolved the issue, but a female in our party spent the rest of the night on tenderhooks.That said the service and the meal were excellent. The ambiance and easygoing staff made up for... More
