Fine for a casual meal out, tired building but plenty of character. No need to dress up. Limited menu but everything was cooked nicely and tasty. Owner was very pleasant and chatty and one reason we will return.

We were 13 people scheduled to eat at Cariba, but because our second covid test results did not arrive in time we could not go. However they were beyond accommodating and we were able to order directly from them, split the bills and have food...delivered directly to our rooms. The food and containers were organized, labeled and SUPERB! We all agree it was one of the best meals we had in Barbados. The chef personally contacted us to make sure everything was great and it certainly was. Would recommend this place to everyone.More

Visited Cariba twice during our recent holiday to Barbados. The restuarant is maybe not as glitzy as some of it's west coast peers, but it certainly has it's own charm and very nice family run feel to it. The staff are all lovely but the...real highlight is the food. My partner and I tried different dishes each time we came and everything was excellent. The lobster main course I had on out first visit was just outstanding. Prices are not cheap but they are definitively competive and well worth the quality of food you are getting. We certainly we be returning to see Glen and Faye when we are back in Barbados and I would recommend anybody to do the same. You will not be disappointed.More

Went to Cariba. Wish we hadn't. Half empty. No atmosphere. Food was okay but expensive for what we ate plus awful location. But attitude of Owner/manager was terrible. So many much nicer places to eat. Never going back again.

My partner and I had three exceptional meals at Cariba. We loved every dish and drink. The food is cooked to perfection, everything is fresh and you certainly get warm and friendly vibes from the waiting staff. Highly recommend Cariba if you're looking for an...out of this world food experience!More

Found this restaurant by accident tucked just off the main road more or less opposite Crystal Cove Hotel but so glad we did. Had the steak in rum sauce which was delicious, steak cooked to perfection. Owner is the chef and his wife and they...were very friendly and chatty and you could see they care about their food and their restaurant. Highly recommendMore

What a lovely restaurant. Quality of the food is excellent. I had the steak with rum sauce - the steak was cooked to perfection. Pudding for me was peanut butter ice cream which is made in house. So creamy - didn’t want the bowl to...finish! The chef came and spoke to us at the end of service which was a nice touch.More
