We just got back from the Hott Pott- it was amazing! We both ordered the Chef's Special. I had grilled Mahi mahi and my partner had panfried marlin. We both had the breadfruit mash. It came with broccoli, sweet potato and salad. This supper was the best thing I have eaten in Barbados and one of the best suppers I have ever had. Excellent quality, excellent presentation and excellent service!!

The food is well- prepared and tasty. Joy, who runs the restaurant with her very capable staff, is a great cook. She plans a different menu every day but will also stray from her plan to accommodate and please everyone.

“Fantastic time, great hosting, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We stayed at Worthing Court Apartment hotel for 2 weeks, during which time we frequented the hotel restaurant a number of times. We especially enjoyed the dinner meals which were always beautifully cooked and presented by the restaurant owner, cook and host - Joy. Joy specializes in cooking local Bajan cuisine, and for that reason alone, I recommend it. Most of the other local food we tried in 'tourist' restaurants was quite ho-hum, but not Joy's cooking. She cooked for us as if we were her family, and now I know why the Bajans enjoy a home cooked meal!

Tired of crowds and standing up to eat at the Friday fish fry at Oisten's? Joy serves delicious local catches every Friday and seating is plentiful. You will also be entertained by - well yourselves - or other guests who indulge in striking a tune on karaoke night. We had a lot of fun on Friday nights at the Hott Pott, and met some wonderful people, both local and fellow tourists who came out to feast of fish and sound out their vocal talents.

If you are a local, Joy makes a very popular local dish called 'puddin' n' sauce' at lunch time on Saturdays. As I lounged by the pool one Saturday, I noticed locals coming in one or two at a time, for about an hour or so around lunch time, and going away with take-away. They all seemed to know Joy and know what it was they were ordering. Joy even asked one of the 'regulars' who came for pick-up, why he didn't call first to place his order so she could have it ready for him. Not a bad idea, as the last were turned away empty-handed when Joy ran out of the lunch special. Seems to me that this is a too well-kept secret!

The restaurant is located in the inner courtyard of the Worthing Court Apartment hotel, so you won't see it from the highway, but it is easy to get to. Just locate Worthing Court and walk through the parking lot, past the office, and you'll find it. Or follow the music on Friday and Saturday nights. You can't miss it. Fantastic time, great hosting, excellent food!
