Still great music and good food....

The old Dixie jazz band still plays on Thursday nights . The food I'd fresh and good, although the prices have gone up since last year. A fun evening of eating and drinking outside, and dancing for an older group, right in downtown Bridgetown.

Try to visit here whenever we are in Bridgetown, usually for lunch and the flying fish sandwich. This time we decided to visit on a Saturday evening. Enjoyable jazz duo, outstanding meals and very good service. A memorable way to end our visit to Barbados.

I visited Waterfront Cafe after my friends and I were unable to get seats at a jazz concert nearby. Disappointed we regrouped at the cafe and had a wonderful evening nibbling snacks including the cod fish cakes. Staff were friendly, the mood was inviting and the jazz ensemble who played more than made up for the concert we missed.

Went on Saturday night. Sat on the deck overlooking the boats, ate good food, received good service, listened to some jazz and had a few drinks. Super way to spend our first night on the island. Also downloaded a good walking tour of downtown from their website. Took it one day and stopped in for a rest and a beer.... More

This charming local cafe situated on the picturesque inner harbor (Careenage) of Bridgetown was the perfect place to catch a quick bite and a cool drink. There is a nice bar and air conditioning inside, but we chose a small table out front overlooking the water. Although the cafe offers a diverse menu, we had eaten a full buffet breakfast,... More

We have been coming here for over 15 years. The service is jolly, the drinks are good and reasonably priced and you overlook the town and the fishing boats.

We stopped off for lunch at the Watefront Café. Our table overlooking the wharf was perfect. After studying the extensive menu with many great bajan dishes with meat, fish or vegetarians, we selected Flying Fish and Cou Cou and Cajun Salmon. Our waitress was very helpful allowing some adjustment to the main dishes and also confirming that the Cajun Salmon... More
