“Lovely lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We were taken here for lunch by our Barbadian friends and it didn't disappoint! Food was lovely, service excellent, beach view beautiful and the rumpunch was the best we found on the island. Definitely a place to visit.

“Great start to the holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Had our first dinner of the holiday here as we were staying at The House next door. Despite feeling rather tired, the combination of the fantastic beach views, good service and great food meant that we got the holiday off to a flying start. Will remain on our list for next year.

“Nice Dinner Spot with Ocean Backdrop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Ate dinner there on first night in Barbados. Beautiful night on their veranda/porch with ocean in background. Food was good and especially the tomato and cucumber salad. Dinner not inexpensive with dropping over $250 US for 3 with one being a child. At that price expect a little more but close. Watch the distilled water game at $15 Barbados dollars we bottle. Before you know you've sent $30 US on water.

“Oh Yes!--Red Snapper!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We found great Red Snapper!
We had stalked most of the West Coast retaurants on out recent trip, but forgot about Daphnes until lunch on the last day and found red Snapper at last! --and how good it was!
This is a lovely restaurant--and very informal at lunchtime as its right on the beach.
Must go there more times when we next visit the island. Forgot how good it was.

“A tasty dining experience !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We dined here as a celebratory meal for my fathers wedding. There were 4 of us.
The restaurant is nicely decorated, open planned, plenty of space and looks out on to the beach and sea.
To start i ordered smoked mussels marinara. Always had mussels the traditional way so this was an experience for me. They were sooo tasty. The smoked effect was delectable and the tangy tomato sauce was also divine. The chef even came out to explain to me how it was done and asked if I liked them. Great personal touch. Others had the meat selections and goats cheese. They all said they were delicious. For main I chose the steak, cooked medium to rare. Cooked to perfection, melt in the mouth, it came with a potato crouton style side with green beans. The steak was also surrounded in a lovely gravy style sauce. Others had the penne pasta, catch of the day which was swordfish and the lamb cutlets. They all said it was stunning.
We couldn't fit a dessert in but the restaurant made a lovely gesture for the newly weds by presenting them with a plate saying congratulations in chocolate, strawberries and handmade chocolates. They were gorgeous.
Staff very attentive,informative and happy!
Reasonably priced for a formal meal. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
