We went to La Cabane following recommendation. All 3 of us had terrible food. The steak was meant to be rare and was cremated, the belly pork was unrecognisable and inedible and the sautéed lentil and mushroom dish was completely tasteless. Also the flying fish...was undercooked and jellyish in texture. It was so dark that we had to use our phone torches to see the food. We approached our waiter about our issues but unfortunately he was completely disinterested. I find it very hard to believe that this restaurant has any good reviews. Personally I would steer clear as there are so many fantastic restaurants In Bridgetown and Holetown.More

Although the food didn’t have as much of a kick as I would’ve liked, the vibe here is unbeatable. Excellent service, food is great (though I’d love a touch more flavor), and the cocktails are delish! Five stars from me, but I’d come here more...for the vibe than the food!More

A table had been booked 10 days in advance, and credit card details provided to secure the booking. On our timely arrival, we were told they would try to find us a table. Nowhere to sit to wait even though there was a spare table...in the bar area that we were told we could not use., by an aggressive male staff member. Eventually given a table behind reception area, with no lighting. The bar table remained empty at this point. Our table Waiter was very pleasant, and food tasty, but could not see what we were eating. Left as soon as we had eaten. We were asked for feedback via email the following day. We voiced our concerns in a constructive way, but no response from management. Chased it up a week later, but still no response. Also, no vegetarian or vegan main course at all.More

Located on the beach, the restaurant is in a fantastic location for early cocktails followed by dinner. Really cool chilled out venue and great for sunset pictures on the beach. The cocktails were really good (especially the Dark & Stormy) and ideal pre-dinner drinks. Simple...menu but well executed. We opted for the rib-eye steak and it was very very good. Really well cooked and the sides were very nice. Good wine list to accompany the meal. You cannot beat having drinks and dinner on the beach. I am surprised this restaurant is not rated higher - I would definitely recommend this place as a must do restaurant in Barbados and can’t wait to go back! Not cheap (no good restaurant in Barbados is) but definitely worth it.More

we had lunch here in February which was fabulous ………….what has gone wrong? Made a dinner reservation for Sunday one month ago however upon arrival it was not ready, no problem we shall have a drink at the bar, half hour later another drink at...the bar. Eventually we (2 of us) were seated on a table for 8 as there were still no tables available. It had a bench seat which didn’t fit under the table so impossible to sit at ! Requested to wait for a proper table however we’re told there were none.We asked for a couple of chairs instead, they bought us 2 beach chairs to sit on😳. In hind sight at this point we should have left but have to say the music was fantastic. Food was very underwhelming, I had the New York strip @ $90 which 70% of was just fat the small amount of steak on it was inedible, when I mentioned it to the waiter he just cleared the plate away and said nothing. No one came to ask if they could bring anything else- where are the management in this place ?? Clearly taking more bookings than tables allow - So many better options on the island for a $350 meal. I’m afraid ambiance and music are not enough alone.More

Really poor service from trying to get through to book at table to the waiter service ( he liked to kiss his teeth) and poor food. REALLY sad that my favourite place was a let down from start to finish.

Having booked this on recommendation we were very disappointed. Our table was not ready when we arrived. The host directed us to the bar where the staff were very unwelcoming, We then ere seated. The table was nice but we could see nothing. We used...our phones to read the two menus given to 5 of us. It look a while to take our order and when the food arrived we could not see what we were eating. The bathrooms are not owned by the restaurant and you have to go to the beach public loos The waiting staff rarely checked in on us and the hostess spoke across us all mid conversation to ask how the food was and walked off. As if it was a tick box for that table. The food was ok - but nothing special. Might be ok for a snack and drink in the day but certainly not good enough at those prices for an evening dinner.More

Tuesday April 19th. We chose La Cabane as we often have guests from abroad on the island and decided it would be the perfect location for a birthday celebration with regular visitors. When I saw your email drop into my in box, in was expecting...it to have also acknowledged your short comings, particularly after my complaint(s) to the duty manager, about our server {D} feeling it appropriate to ‘kiss-his-teeth’ not once but several times when corrected on the inaccuracy of our order. In addition he felt emboldened enough to snatched the water jug from me before walking away, without providing the courtesy of refilling my glass, clearly showing his distain over my attempt to fill my glass from the water jug which was placed next to our table. This was just after he removed 2 unfinished drinks from our table when my guest went to the bathroom, and again when challenged upon their return; instead of acknowledging what was perhaps a simple error he chose another route and denied it – telling them their drinks were finished. He then didn’t feel the need to say he would put it right and replace them. Admittedly replacement drinks were sent but it was clear to us all that our server had a problem with us or at least an attitude problem with us. Additionally the food...generally great! However we didn’t expect at a premium dining experience to have a Rib-eye being presented in a salad bowl or for a steak knife to not be offered. This unusual presentation choice also meant that without ‘tilting’ the bowl under the lamp we had no idea what the meal looked like. Presentation is of course a part of the dining experience and we would expect meals to be plated well, given the price point. Finally - getting through to you by phone in order to book a reservation, shouldn’t be as difficult with the phone going unanswered… especially during opening hours! And then when answered being addressed in a short impatient manner. While this might not register as a compliant – this is an observation of how your business is being represented and could impact repeat business, referrals and reputation. If you really strive to offer the best possible experience to all your guests…? Just to finish up by explaining that I have never given a bad review or been treated so disrespected at a retrauntant and was probably your biggest fan up until Tuesday and I’m hoping your business is not getting complacent with your local guests?More
