Just by the bridge in Bridgetown. Far enough away from the bustle of the city, but close enough to enjoy the atmosphere. Prices are a little bit on the expensive side but well worth it. Try the bar immediately above, brilliant atmosphere.

After a few hours wandering around Bridgetown we stopped here for some drinks. Excellent welcome and service suggestions of drinks for adults and kids - lovely way to spend an hour watching the boats come in and turtles being fed.

Salmon sweetie potatoes and spinach with bread pudding for dessert.😍😁 This truly was a very good dining place. The fish I had was blackened and the spinach & potatoes were so good. We ate outside and saw the sailers feeding the turtle.

This is my second time to Barbados as well as to The Waterfront Cafe. My last trip to The Waterfront Cafe in February - March 2015 was a great experience. The venue, music, food and staff made our trip. Susan showed us a great time and we will return again soon. I highly recommend The Waterfront Cafe.

The Waterfront Café, is a locally run bajan restaurant located right on the harbour's edge in Bridgetown. Run by a local lady, the menu is excellent and the food both homely and of high quality. What's more it'd good value!

We have been travelling to Barbados for many years and always make a point to stop at the Waterfront Cafe. The food is consistently good and great value for money. The staff friendly and accomodating and sufficiently far away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre for a moment of peace and time to cool down. We can... More
