Heard and read some great reviews of the Waterfront Cafe but wether or not we were just unlucky on this particular night I'm not sure! The location is good and the atmosphere was fun with the live music. However, having been shown to our table our order was taken pretty quickly and waited around 45mins for our starter to arrive....

If you are from London you will find it particularly familiar as you sit and look over the carnage towards the Barbados Houses of Parliament. Given you are in the Capital it is actually a very peaceful spot and there is something rather... More

Lunch at the Waterfront Cafe was the bomb. The red snapper meal was over top and service was excellent with caring staff. It located in the heart of Bridgetown right next to the Careenage.

A great location in the heart of Bridgetown. Very picturesque. Great food at easy prices. Best on Thursday nights when the Dixieland Jazz Band really makes it comes alive.
