Excellent food but no atmosphere - we were the only customers at 8pm at night

The food was of very good quality and presented well. We sat upstairs on the veranda. Unfortunately there was no atmosphere as we were the only customers in the restaurant at 8pm.

The food was of very good quality and presented well. We sat upstairs on the veranda. Unfortunately there was no atmosphere as we were the only customers in the restaurant at 8pm. Mews was one of many restaurants that were very quiet in Holetown - this could be because their prices are all on the high side.

Don't be convinced by the website that you have a choice of menus, you are presented with one that bares little resemblance to the available one on the website, We booked this evening, must say, staff great, however, the food was average at best for what we had, and what we paid, I think taking advantage of location is an...

We visited the mews last night (Saturday night) and were greeted by very friendly and welcoming staff. There looked to be a second restaurant area on the ground floor which was closed off and we were escorted to our table upstairs which was light and airy and the decor is very chic. The food was amazing, perfectly cooked and presented,... More

This restaurant is a solid performer in Holetown. It has a nice bar downstairs and food is consistently of good quality. Price point is mid level. It's not an outside restaurant or one with views but you can sit on the small balcony overlooking the street and do some Holetown people watching. One of the few places open Monday, good... More

We visited this restaurant after a recommendation from a friend. We had a table upstairs on a veranda which overlooked the street. The menu was nice and reasonably priced, the food was fantastic. After eating we sat downstairs in the bar area which had music and a buzzing atmosphere

The Mews is a good place for some after dinner drinks in Holetown, which we visited a number of times on our recent stay on the island. Steve the barman always looks after you, the music is good and on Friday nights they have a live DJ.

This was our 2nd trip to Barbados and after our 1st this was firmly on our revisit list and did not disappoint. It's full of regulars and has a great vibe. When we visited this time the air con was rather aggressive but the owner sorted that once we alerted him. We will be return. It has a private dining... More

My wife & I dined here in April and enjoyed it. The food, which is very good, is more 'fine dining' than 'cheap & cheerful' and the service is friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a visit and we will certainly return nect time we're in Barbados.
