We had to have a quick lunch so we saw the chairs and sat down and prayed we would not get sick...I had a Caesar salad not bad average...my husband had a chicken sandwich...that evening he didn't feel so good but kept it down that's all I will say about this place...

Pretty much as in the title. It's a nice atmosphere with good internet but $52 for 2 sandwiches and 3 coffees and a water is a little too expensive.

Wonderful restaurant, delicious food, great service and nice location by the marina but was disappointed to find it closed when were were in Barbados in June of 2015. I hear it has reopened now by new owners and hope it is just as good as it was previously. Will check it out next time we are in BIM.

Fantastic venue with great food, views and amazing jazz bands on a Thursday evening. Best to book if you want to eat as very popular and not a huge restaurant.

Great location right down on the harbour with a good view of the town, service okay on the first visit, not so great second time around, reasonable prices. Chocolate Milk Shake was lovely.

We passed by this restaurant checking out the catamarans. We were told by UK visitors that we should eat there. It was among the best meals we had on Barbados. The fresh fish dishes were wonderful and priced well. I'd be sure to catch an evening with live entertainment. Just a great evening with terrific service. A must stop in... More

We spent there afternoon eating some sandwiches. The dishes were average, what we liked was an amount of French fries and potatoes, so we really ate a Great quantity. The prices are reasonable.
