This restaurant serves a wide variety of traditional, local dishes. Everything is prepared with care and in the usual way of our fore parents. The food is delicious! Three of us were celebrating birthdays and were presented with slices of frosted chocolate cake and the steel panist played and sang at our table. There is a wide selection of tasty... More

I was very surprised when we arrived as it was nothing like i expected, i had read many good reviews about the place but all I can say is that I am baffled. Its no more than a glorified cafe with no views, no character and dismal, ignorant staff, (i can only assume they hate it there too,....) All you... More

I had a very sweet and lovely experience at Brown Sugar. I went around the time of my birthday and if you let the waitress or someone at the restaurant know its your b'day they will come to your table with a slice of cake and basically total strangers end up singing happy birthday to you. You just feel so... More

More locals than tourists at lunchtime when we visited so that to me means good value + good food, and we weren't disappointed. Quite busy and we had to wait a while, but was still worth the wait, and when are you in a hurry in Barbados? We didn't get to visit for Dinner, but Brown Sugar is top of... More

To book or not to book. We chose not to, but seating was no problem. We were warmly greeted and made to feel so welcomed. We were topped up with iced water throughout the buffet meal. There was inside or outside covered seating. Save space for the deserts they were well worth it. Roast beef of pudding and souse, they... More

Two visits here, one better service than the other. Overall, a good presentation of local cuisine in a garden house setting. Not inexpensive but this is Barbados. Likely the best restaurant in the area.
