We ate here during our holiday in St Lawrence Gap on the recommendation of our hotel. Would rate this as a fine dining restaurant. Lovely location overlooking the sea. Service was excellent as was the food, although the menu is not that extensive. Nice welcome from the barman at the outside bar located just inside the property. Nice idea to... More

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!!

Beach One is a must visit when in Barbados. The location, with its ocean-front seating and clear blue waves sweeping onto the small cove beach make it perfect for a romantic dinner or simply a piteresque experience. One that is usually only experienced in a movie. I can't say enough about the amazing staff who made us feel like longtime... More

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. They do have entertainment in the evenings which probably would have been worth a try, but it was the... More

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.

Food is good, but portions are small. One needs to ask for more than one portion and mind you I am a 50 kg woman. Service is OK. Cost benefit not so good, prices high.
