“Good location and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We usually visit Pisces for dining overlooking the bay in St Lawrence Gap, but as it is currently closed for renovation we decided to try Chez Max instead. We visited on a Monday evening and there were only 2 other tables occupied but was enough to create some atmosphere. Service was excellent and the view over looking the bay lovely with the waves lapping down below. Lots of little lights everywhere to add to the atmosphere too. Food was good, not amazing but still tasty. The chef came out and had a chat to us which I understand he does with everyone but still a nice touch. Worth a visit.

“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

This restaurant is at the entrance of st Lawrence gap and could easily be missed as there is no pavement leading to it and only the sign to give any indication. However once inside it leads straight to the beachfront with open air windows and overlooking the ocean. Fabulous. There is not a huge choice on the menu, but there will be something you will enjoy. We only wanted the main meal but we were served, suchi and tapanard with lovely warm bread as a taster and it was free and very tasty. The meals when they came were lovely and very well presented(can't remember what we had, but we cleared our plates) it is not the cheapest restaurant, but well worth a visit

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

We visited Barbados in Jan 2014. We were staying in Hastings (about 15 mins walk) a lady asked us where we were planning on eating that night and gave us a card. We decided to go back there after a little walk around and found that the card got us 10% off the bill! The table we had was looking out onto the beach, the restaurant is beautiful, very romantic setting. Little bit more pricey to the other places we'd ate locally but definitely worth it! The food was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. Would recommend this hotel, especially for couples x
