Superb

We couldn't have asked for a more fitting venue and meal with spectacular views to match. The whole experience from start to finish was superb and I would highly recommend the tuna carpaccio. A special venue for a special occasion.

We were walk in customers and the staff here were very welcoming, friendly and attentive. We had a lovely table in the garden right by the ocean. The food was ok but didn't quite live up to the price we were paying.

I think this is over priced for what it is. The atmosphere is lacking something and the service is mediocre at best compared to other fine dining on the south coast. The meal itself was average. Nothing special. And the wine list was really bad. I think there are much better places to spend your money in Barbados!!

We went for lunch. The food was nothing special. We expected fresh seafood options. The only option was fried fish. One of us had a ham sandwich, one thesoup of the day and two others chicken sandwiches. It was expensive too.

Meant to review this restaurant before now. Anyway here goes. First the positives. Location is top class. Server friendly. Reasonable atmosphere. Chops worst I have tasted with hardly any usable meat and not properly heated. Won't be back.

Sorry to say this restaurant is now closed and I have asked TripAdvisor to remove it from the list. The new restaurant, Beach One, now has its own profile if you want to leave a review.
