“Wonderful restaurant with a beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We enjoyed lunch here twice and both times we were impressed. We had a table overlooking the water and really appreciated the lovely setting so close to our hotel. The menu has good variety with some splendid seafood and starters. Overall a great restaurant in a superb setting.

“Champers is beautiful setting, great food and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Great to visit again. I had the king fish ceviche which was amazing to start, and special rib eye for main. We couldn't squeeze in desert as too full. Food was beautiful, setting delightful by water and staff attentive and friendly as usual. Arrival cocktails were great, and wine list very good and comprehensive. I had a Chablis that was great and my companion a Riesling, then we knocked off a beautiful bottle of medoc with the beef. All for less than 500 dollars. Fabulous. Have already booked again ! One of the consistently best restaurants on Barbados and good value for the setting.

“Awful Service Mixed with Splendid Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Champers had fantastic food and the chef should be commended. And it has a great ocean view and location. But can good food outweigh intentionally awful service? How about mixed drinks that ostensibly have a cheaper substitute than was asked for?

Service starts with the reception, goes throughout dinner, and ends when you one finally leaves. The prices at this restaurant are very high and therefore service should be commensurate with the high price. At the end of the day, great food and views do not make up for awful service.

Note that the restaurant also pre-charges for service, but don't tell you on the actual final bill, leaving those who are not careful to overpay.

If you still decide to frequent the restaurant, note that it is on an alley way which can be easy to miss. The alley way starts off the main road at the "Tiki Bar" which is easy to find. Beware broken sidewalks, etc.

“Wonderful and romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

We were walking on the beach when we saw this beautiful restaurant just by the sea so we decided to go snd check it out. It's a bit in a "hidden" place so you won't notice it by walking on the main street. The staff was very welcoming when we entered and immidietly took us to the table "number 61" which was prpbably the best table in the whole place, with an incredible ocean view, a very romantic table for two. The service was great and fast and the food was excellent. Would definitely go there again!!
