“My favourite Cafe Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Cafe Bar Carizma is in one of the best spots in Holetown. Set in the pretty Chattel Village it is a very relaxing and shady cool cafe.
A very good cappuccino is served and a great variety of food for a lunchtime snack. They serve a knockout cocktail called the Carizma Hurricane and also a nice soft drink of lemon and ginger.
Every member of staff I encountered was very professional.
On my next visit I will for sure try out the Tapas night.
Hats off to you Anita and Dave ... you have a lovely little place!

“Nice tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We visited on a Tuesday night for tapas and it was very pleasant. Nice food, friendly and efficient staff, would recommend you give it a try. We also had a lunch and drinks here at other times and were always happy with the food and service.

“A good (but pricey) find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We went for tapas a few months ago and I promised I would write a review but never got around to it until now. I thoroughly enjoyed my night at Cafe Carizma. The band was great! The atmosphere was relaxed and cozy and the owners and staff all so personable. We did find that our dinner was a bit pricey for what we received but, at the end of the day, agreed that the experience was worth it.

“Fab place with lovely Tapas and music!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The guys at Carizma are friendly, nice and know how to cook up some of the best most reasonable food on the island. We went back three times on our trip it was so good. In fact it was so good that we sacked off going to the Cliff on our final night and went to Carizma instead. There is a band on Tuesdays and Thursdays who are really excellent. Reggae, new tunes and even some Bajan classics. Don't miss out on this hidden gem!

“Best night of our holiday...a real hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We stumbled across this place whilst shopping round the chattel village. I fancied a cocktail and the waiter told us about the tapas and live band nights they have on a Tuesday and Thursday nights. What a wonderful evening we had, the band were outstanding and the food was too...Just sorry we come home on Monday so only get to experience this hidden gem once. ....you MUST go if you want a wonderful relaxed entertaining evening.
