“Lovely position by the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Wonderful setting, we went at lunch and it did feel a little too formal for lunch and expensive. However I could imagine it would be stunning in the evening. Worth a visit.

“Good as always”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Busy as we've ever seen it for a lunch in January, The Fishpot was as good as ever - it has a genuine charm that makes it stand out from some of it's more pretentious rivals down the coast to the south

“Great service and staff but food underwhelmed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We had heard many good things about this place. Unfortunately we whilst it was good I was expecting more from the food. I think to be fair we would give it another go next time we go back. Setting is nice, but for place call the fish pot, the soup on the menu was chicken. What I was really expecting was lobster bisque or a nice fish soup. Bouillabaisse as a main would be a nice option and how about a nice fish curry? Some of the menu items were trying to be asian fusion, I guess its just not what we had in mind. Maybe they will change their menu so try to check before you go.

“Proper spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

A great place to enjoy lunch or dinner.Nicely casual yet excellent food with great and friendly service.The location and views are first rate.Try the fish platter for lunch with a bottle of chilled wine and you will not be disappointed.If you are staying further down the coast the new water taxi service is a fantastic way to arrive.

“A lovely place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We were on a trip round the island and stopped in Speightstown to have a look around when I remembered reading about The Fish Pot. It is not easy to find as I missed the sign for the turn-off to Little Good Harbour, but we got there in the end.
We had a mix of starters and main courses and the bill for the 4 of us came to BDS $ 247, with the dishes on average costing $30. This is one of the few restaurants in Barbados not to include a service charge, so do not forget to tip if you are happy with the service.
The view from the restaurant is nice and their coffee table certainly interesting. If you are staying in the south of the island you will need a car to get there.
If you are driving round Barbados plan to be there for lunch.
