Stopped in for lunch after recommendation from locals. Everyone said to try it. We had the Pineapple bowl ( jerk chicken ) and a Bajan lunch special ( chicken, macaroni pie, coleslaw and rice ), The food was excellent and the wait wasn't long but we were early for lunch. Lots of takeout going out the door while we were there. The service was what you expect on island time and the waitress was very friendly. Wish we had of heard about Flavours earlier.

We saw this show two days after seeing Harbor Lights. Both are good shows with essentially the same types of performances, except Flavours of Barbados was clearly an older crowd whereas Harbor Lights was geared towards families and young adults. Probably driven by the cost difference! Don't think Flavours was worth the high cost, and probably could've gone without it, however there were signs all over Maxwell Beach and our coordinator highly recommended it (little did we know she was also working it).

So, if you've got an extra night and and extra $80, go for it. Otherwise, if you see Harbor Lights, you're not missing anything.

Sea Rocks Dome (part of Barbados Beach Club) is fantastic for special events- Weddings etc. Overlooks the Ocean.

On Tuesday we went to Flavours of Barbados. It was an amazing experience! Our van driver was honest and direct. The hospitality at the show was wonderful and the food and show were fantastic! We highly recommend checking it out.

The dinner show is under a dome near the beach. If you should come early, you may wait a bit until all the bus pickups arrive. You are seated right away. The service was slow to start but it was good at the end. Otherwise, I saw many get up themselves to the bar. It seems like they can offer some light entertainment while people wait rather than the DJ music. The buffet line started at 8pm. For a buffet, I thought it was pretty good, especially the BBQ ribs and chicken. Unlike other dinner shows, you can go back for more.

As for the show itself, it was just ok. There's about 8-10 dancers/singers performing. The one singer was very good. But a couple of the acts like Pirates of the Caribbean and Rihanna tribute was so-so. I suppose those were needed to cater to the very young and teen crowd. At the end, the show tries to be interactive and get the crowd on the dance floor. This idea always seems to be a struggle with any kind of show. A handful of people and kids went on the stage. This portion of the show lasted way too long. Overall, I thought it was ok except the show can be a better production.

Flavours of Barbados is a really great dinner and show.
My experience began at the front door at the ticket both.There I met a lovely and charming young lady by the name Deborah.From there the hostesses showed us to our seats.Then there was the food, oh my what a delightful meal buffet style.Then the band with some really beautiful Caribbean music,just before the cabaret style dancers. The dancers and the stilt men mingled amongst the guests, giving the guests the opportunity to participate with the performers.Last but not least the opportunity to take pictures with the beautiful performers.
I would definitely recommend this show and dinner to all and it indeed family show.

I say surprisingly because I have been to so many of these "tourist" type shows. I was staying at the hotel next door and, as the hotel was very quiet at this time, I was offered a complimentary ticket by the Manager. While the buffet was nothing special, it was plentiful, as was the rum punch; however, I found the entertainment to be excellent - a snapshot of Bajan life over the centuries. The music and dancing were very good and the two stiltwalkers were just awesome!

A slow start with regards to getting in and getting a drink. Once it got going though the food was lovely ( Bajan) and the table service was fine. The show was lovely and fun, with the added bonus of an appearance by an old Barbados favourite Red Plastic Bag, who belted out some of his old hits. A good night out

The Dinner Show's dancing was absolutely amazing, but I felt the narrator could have given more information about the dance. We were disappointed in the food. The macaroni pie tasted like too much ketchup and the rice was dry with no gravy. The fish was also dry and not much taste to it, but the chicken was ok, not great, but ok. The best part of all was the bread pudding for dessert.
The service was ok at first, but on several occasions we had to go looking for our own drinks.
2nd time seeing this show and felt the 1st time was a lot better. Would we go again? Probably not.

From the warm and friendly staff to the amazing food - and the great rum punch - it truly was a night to remember! Set in a spectacular setting right on the waters edge it was a stunning venue to watch the beautiful sun set into the Caribbean Sea. The dance show was an entertaining immersive trip through the history of the island filled with incredible costumes and impressive dancers. Definitely not one to miss out on!
