A really fun cafe with good food, excellent live music and friendly staff. Get the balcony table for a beautiful ocean view!

“Chill Out with Great Food and an Awesome Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The best thing about this restaurant is how laid back it is. Great place to just chill, unwind from a busy day of beach activities, enjoy a cold drink, and watch the waves come up to the restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was great. The restaurant is literally sitting out over the water, so if you get a table over the water you are in the best spot to watch the sunset. The decor is rustic, with cool art hanging on the walls. The best deal is the catch of the day.... fresh, cooked to order, and really tasty. This was the first restaurant I tried in Barbados and it set the standard for all the other ones I have tried since. For Barbados, it was reasonably priced.

My wife and I visited Surfer's Cafe, twice, during our last stay in Barbados. The food was excellent and the drinks, even better! :)

“So chilled, nice food and people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Great food for after a hard day's surfing or just lounging. A really chilled out bar, with art work on the walls, a view over the water and that real surf shack feel that all the adverts promise. It's one of those places you can just sit and watch the world go by.

Beautiful setting right over the water - magnificent cocktails, fabulous food, great service, and very chill and comfortable. Went back the next morning for coffee!
