I have been to Barbados twice. Each time a trip to Bathsheba was a part of the plan and enjoyed. Round House had been seen on tripadvisor and an instant attraction was felt...and lunch was the right time of day for us to be there.
We had no reservation. The restaurant was busy, but the wait staff found a table for us...First time on the terrace, second inside in front of a window. The Breeze is lovely and welcome as lunchtime is a peak time for Sun too. Menus provided quickly and drinks magically appeared. The waitress noticed I was more than a little warm and brought a cold towel to the table for me. Now that is above and beyond!
We shared the Flying fish plate as an appetizer and it was delicious. Fish and chicken mains tasty, as was the breadfruit chips. Coconut pie yummy. Perhaps as I am a New York native the prices did not seem terrible....high yes, but then any place we ate in Barbados was expensive so not shocking that this was too and was known from reading the reviews.
Service was slow, but friendly and as these trips were vacation, no rush needed.Felt very comfortable with just chilling out, staff did not rush us. Was nice to sit and linger over our bottle of wine, while the heat of the day dissipated. Not a place to eat on the run, but then why would you want to?
I liked it so much that I asked for a tour of the rooms above. The manager was more than informative and showed all to me..Each different, small, lovely, and the views....WOW..Not a plastic shiny place.... charming is the right description.
