A recommendation from our concierge brought us to this fantastic restaurant and the best one we visited on the island. A wonderful location with excellent food and attentive staff. The menu gave a great selection of both food and wine and had we been stopping...longer we would have visited again. A lot of the restaurants in the area seem to charge similar prices, let’s just say “this one is worth it” to the staff “thanks for helping to make our special day one to remember. Make sure you book in advance.More

We have been coming to Barbados for around 15 years with our two sons who are now 17 and 22. The food and service has always been great and good if you want something a little different on the South Coast. They are very accomodating...and will adapt dishes to suit your needs. Many of the staff have also been there for a long time which is a testimont to the propiertor in what has been a very difficult time throughout Covid and beyond.More

Excellent food and prices! We were seated on the second floor overlooking the beach. The sun sets between 630-7pm, we had dinner at 7pm and even then the view was beautiful. Our servers were amazing. They work very hard and the masks makes it that...much harder or maybe it’s just me ears 🤣🤣. Food was delicious! Appetizer: mussels in wine sauce and chicken samosas with chutney sauce Main: - Pork tenderloins wrapped in bacon over mashed potatoes and cabbage - Thai chicken curry with basmati rice and two crisp rice cakes Dessert: Fried banana and tiramisu Parking - valet available for free. Alvin was great. There’s a boardwalk that runs right in front of the property. And can walk it in the evening. Seemed like a very nice walk. We will do it next time. All staff was very friendly. We look forward to our next visit.More

Couldn't ask for anything more. The food was great and Alex (aka Shawn) was a friendly, knowledgeable and patient server. Highly recommended.

Loved this place, right from the outset. The cocktails were amazing and only around£7.00gbp. Food was excellent too and we really enjoyed the visit along with a stroll along the Boardwalk afterwards.

We were really looking forward to our visit to Tapas, the reviews and the menu looked great. I booked our table (2A 1C) online and when we got there was disappointed that they hadn’t actually got a table ready-instead they just shoved an extra chair...at a 2 person table whilst we were standing there. They seated us before they even set the table for all of us. I know that QR menus are a hangover from the pandemic, but in a quality restaurant I do expect to have an option of a physical menu. We ordered our food and drinks, having had to ask twice for a refill on a glass of water. When the drinks order was brought mine was the wrong drink-but no apology or acknowledgment of that fact The food when it came was very tasty, however no one came anywhere near to ask if we were enjoying it, nor to see if we needed more drinks. We finally managed to get someone’s attention so my husband could order a beer-and we were grunted at, he wasn’t asked which beer he wanted just a Banks was slammed in front of him. We could have excused poor service if the restaurant hadn’t been so quiet. Most of the evening was spent watching 4 staff members standing at the bar chatting. Compared to the great service we have experienced other places this was really disappointing and whilst the food was good-you don’t expect to pay premium rates for such ropey service.More

I reserved in advance online and got to choose my seating. “balcony floor ocean front”. The day of, I got a WhatsApp message confirming if I would be there at my appointed time from one of the hostesses. When I arrived, I had a beautiful...ocean front view! The waiters were very nice and upbeat and gave me my birthday dessert on the house! The food was very good and filling as well. The ambiance was very relaxing/romantic. I would come here again!More

Having visited before 3 years ago and enjoyed, another trip was high on our agenda. It didn't fail to please. We ate several of the tapas dishes the highlight being the carpaccio of beef and the marlin gravalax, so not much cooking required but.... excellent...presentation and flavours and very generous portions. On leaving we rebooked for our last night this time eating earlier on the beachside tables to watch the sunset, definitely worth booking these tables. Service is top quality and friendly my wife never once had to touch the wine bottle and for the price I've had some very ordinary meals in poor restaurants in England.More

My wife, daughter and I visited Tapas on the evening of May 9th. We were immediately seated on the upper level and offered water. Fifteen minutes later we decided to get up and leave. During that time no one came to our table. The two...male servers who were working the upper level did not even noticed us. I understand that sometimes it could get busy and with limited staff it could be overwhelming. But totally ignoring us is unacceptable! The merit of a good review is based on a exceptional experience…this wasn’t one!More

Two of us ate here for supper and sat upstairs at a table next to the water splashing against the seawall and boardwalk. My husband had fish pot, which he enjoyed, and I had jumbo shrimp, which was great.
