I went to Naru on my first night at Barbados for a business trip. As it was monday the place was almost empty but even so service was professional and efficient. I ordered octopus sushi as it was one of the night specials. I enjoy it and recommend it for sushi lovera

We booked a table for 2; nice welcoming , the restaurant is very good looking. Warm atmosphere with fire and smooth lights with a view on the sea. We both ate sushi, the fish was surprisingly fresh and the maki rolls really accurate. Food/wine service and presentation was precious! Will surely come back again, Thanks!

I have been going to Naru for years now; and this restaurant remains my favorite place to dine. My family and I go at least 3-4 times a month. The sushi is what makes me love this spot; especially the specialty rolls they offer (modern combos with twists; along with the ever delicious traditional rolls.) But what really keeps my... More

Strategically located on the South Coast, just off the Board Walk in Hastings, Christ Church. The atmosphere was welcoming, informal and elegant. The service was of international standard, if not better. The management and staff sincerely looked after our needs and requirements. This was evidenced when we asked if we had any allergies, etc.. As a vegetarian, there was ample... More

We always enjoy their varied menu, including delicious fresh fish with many options. I have a severe gluten allergy, which they honour with both concern and accuracy. Their wine list offers many options and, although we aren't dessert people, their post-meal offerings look excellent.

The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. The location, right on the beach! We were seated inside as the tables outside were full. Even though we were inside we had the feeling of being outdoors because its open to the patio. Great lighting, nice waterfalls. Waiter was ok, not very efficient or attentive. We were 5, with 2 of us not... More

Lovely food in a fantastic location on the south coast of barbados. I usually find the standard of west coast restaurants to be so much better than the south but Naru could hold it's own on the west coast. Very well presented, tasty food and excellent service.
