We stumbled across this place last November (2015) it was absolutely amazing, so quiet, so relaxing It's a bit hard to find and you probably need a car to get to it, but it's well worth it. Lovely food, lovely staff Certainly a first stop on my next visit to Barbados in 2016

On a two week trip to Barbados in August, my husband and I wandered over to Surfer's Bay one evening. We were staying very close by, and were able to take a shortcut over a field to get there and leave the car at home. This was a casual, very friendly little bar/restaurant overlooking the sea with a great vibe.... More

Surfer's Bay is tucked away from the main road on the south side of the island and was a great find. There's not much in terms of restaurants in that area, so we were pleased to find a place close to where we were staying. There's nothing fancy about this beach bar - they have a limited menu for dinner,... More

Surfers bay has a small hotel called Moonaker and this beach bar services the hotel But is also open to the public. The choices on the menu or blackboard are limited but I have had most and all are good particularly the catch of the day I recommend It lightly grilled served with rice. There is a very relaxed atmosphere... More

I was staying in the neighbourhood and thought I would try this place for dinner. When I arrived at around 5:30, there was about 3 people there, but within minutes the place got very busy. They post a blackboard with the daily specials. I had a beef stew. It was good, perhaps could have been in the slow cooker a... More

Surfer's Bay is a nice, casual, open air restaurant looking out onto Silver Sands Beach with the air of a sports bar (high chairs and tables and regular). I had a Pina Colada that was done right and a burger that was the best cheese burger I've ever had. So good that the 2nd time I went, I had the... More

My wife and I stayed near by for an evening and came to this establishment three times as it was the only bar or restaurant near by. All I can say is if there were other options we would not have returned. Food limited is mediocre at best. Drinks were ok but the bar staff are rude and clearly prefer... More

We were following the coast road and came across this fantastic place. We had drinks and some lunch. Andy was great and very helpful even if he did predict that the West Indies with Chris Gayle would beat England! We only had $50 Barbados so had to return later with the rest. Will go again next year

A lovely beach bar, happy hour at 5:30. The food is simple, it's fine. The view and ambience are what makes this place. It's off the beaten track. The sea crashes on to the rocks just a few metres away

Steve and the other employees were extremely friendly. The location is excellent, right on the water! Drinks are fabulous. We went here a couple of nights. The live music I believe is on Thursday and Sunday nights, and was excellent. Can't stay enough positive things.
