“Get the Rotis”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

I read Chefette was on a list for top fast food from a travel magazine and there are only located in Barbados. I read the rotis here are very delish according to the magazine. I asked a couple of locals if this was true and they said to try the Rotis here. We went to the Chefette location in Oistins. We tried the chicken and a beef roti. We ordered the ones with potato. The best way to describe of how the rotis look like - a burrito! Chicken cooked in bajan spices and potato wrapped in the roti bread. What make the rotis delish was the blend of spices making this fast food treat tasty. The locals that were eating in here were eating the rotis as well. Do try a roti if you want need a quick bite and want to spend a few dollars.

“not good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

the good part is that all chefettes are air conditioned so it was wonderful to get out of the heat but the burgers are not good. Won't be going again.

“Love it but mainly the barn for its wide selections”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

What we like about it is that apart from the fast food section there is a barn section which serves salads, platter dishes: choice of dolphin or chicken to go with macaroni or mashed potato, then you have deserts to choose from. The barn has more of a dining feel to it where you sit and enjoy your food in comfort and have no rush. The Rockley and Warrens outlets are the only ones that have the barn. The latter (Warrens) is smaller though as you have to share space with the fast food people. At Rockley however, the barn has its own space and setting that diners there sit among each other and are sheltered away from the hustle and bustle of the fast food area. However, the distinction of the two leads the barn to be the best. The fast food section has become average. You get good portions of chips and chicken. But what has become to lack is that of the Roti sizes. They have become smaller and for the price of one, you feel like your money was wasted. The drive thru section seems the best option when in a hurry. But some outlets are poor when it comes to them. Depending on your order you are asked whether you wish to wait five minutes or more. A drive thru means getting faster service than going inside. Many times we had orders that required waiting extra minutes and that was a pain. The service overall from the staff is that they are friendly and helpful.
