Very nice setting, food was just ok to me. For all the hype about this restaurant I expected to be blown away by everything (menu options, décor, service) and I was not. It has a nice location, ocean front with an outdoor dining option but beyond that, I was not that impressed

Visited twice during our recent holiday and had dinner on the terrace. This is my favourite restaurant - excellent food, excellent service and a brilliant location. Highly recommended Chocolate Cin cocktail - very moreish! Also highly recommend the braised short rib - one of their signature dishes. Cater well for children as well.

We had been very much looking forward to our last evening on the island and had booked Cin Cin for the first time. From the moment we arrived in the taxi we felt like the predominantly male staff behaved with less respect for two females than they showed for couples. They appeared unaware of social boundaries and their behaviour would... More

We visited Cin Cin 2 years ago when the only issue we had was with the service. It remains a very smart place to go, in a beautiful position on the sea. Food was very well-cooked, although portion sizes were not large. The main issue again was service. We waited 30 minutes for our drinks in the bar before we... More

Booked a waterside table from the UK.....well worthwhile. Modern feel to the restaurant with Gary and his fantastic staff giving it the must have Bajan feel. Excellent views only overshadowed by the staff and the food. Meal for four adults, starters, main courses, drinks and a mid-priced bottle of wine giving a total bill of BDS770.58 On the way out...

Pork belly with jus on a bed of blanched veg followed by Short rib then the best bread pudding in the west is the way to banish concerns about the Barbadian rain ruining our hols. Amazing vista too....waves crashing on the rocks ...
