Storms swept in and we had been locked into our Crane suite all day. We thought we'd get our sushi on at Zen. I can take or leave this restaurant as we have been guests for several years now. Tonight's experience was terrific. Service was good- attentive, much more than usual. We each had a curry (3) each was delicious.... More

We had four adults and four children (aged 8-12). All enjoyed the view and privacy of the Tatami room, plus the fun of the sunken seating. The food was delicious. The server was very patient with us. There were lots of choices on the menu and it took us a bit to narrow it down and decide. All 8 of... More

We ate at the Zen Restaurant twice. Both times great meals. Sushi was great. There were so many things on the menu it is hard to choose!

We just called in on the off chance of a table and lucky we were given the last available one. The staff were friendly and efficient. We chose to have one each of the tasting menus - one Japanese and the other Thai. They looked amazing and were of excellent quality. Will definitely be back and will probably stay at... More

I grew up in Toronto where you can get authentic Japanese, Chinese, Italian, everything! Zen is on par so I was very happy the night of May 24th in Barbados! It is pricey but I guess that's to be expected since I'm not in a big city with lots of Japanese food. A bento box would cost 1/4 less for... More

I eat at the Zen no less than four times monthly. It provides a relaxing and private environment for having that mouth watering meal after a hard days work. My favorite meal is Nom Prik Prow, you should try it. A very classy and romantic upmarket restaurant which sits by the ocean on a cliff top.

It has floor to ceiling windows that allow you to eat whilst taking in the stunning view of the beach. We ate during the evening when the beach and sea are illuminated from the... More

My husband and I enjoyed yet another wonderful meal at Zen. The dumplings and chicken satay were yummy. We both had Thai curry and it was delicious. Our service was attentive. The view is breathtaking. The beach has lights and the waves can be seen rolling over the beach. In all the visits to Zen we have yet to have... More

We have dined regularly at Zen since it opened several years ago. The ambience, view and decor are as good as ever. The food has consistently improved since the early days. We were shown our table in a private booth by head waiter Shane, and then looked after assiduously by Finn and his assistants. My wife started with Japanese (Cali... More
