In Barbados you can have it all. Old school elegance at The Cliff, trendy dining at Cin Cin, having it large at the Gap. But sometimes, you find a place that encapsulates all that is good in a place, under one roof.
Yes, the service may be laid back, and you may struggle to hear the waiters warm, low voice, but, welcome to the Caribbean. Shaker's isn't trying to be anything that it isn't. So what is it? In a residential area, hard to find, it's a genuine treasure. Get there early enough to eat outside and enjoy home made delights like their ribs and blackened catch of the day. They are shameless enough to include cheesy chips on the menu, and I'm shameless enough to say I loved them.
Call and book to avoid disappointment.
Directions: on the coastal road (coming from Carlisle bay towards Rockley), turn left at Bubba's sports bar and continue for a few minutes deep into a residential area, avoiding the temptation to turn back. Turn left at chicken glorious, and you will see the twinkling patio lights.
