After visiting several bars within this area it was a breath of fresh air to find this place. We visited during the Covid restrictions but this place was alive with good entertainment Thursday- Sun. Such a pleasure to have such prompt service, by friendly,helpful staff...,that other nearby places did not offer .More

Had heard good things about Blakey's but was underwhelmed by our experience. The food was very bland. I had fish cakes which were so hard and tasted like dough. The burger was not seasoned and really disappointed with the experience. The sea view was good.

I am easily impressed in general so I'm so surprised I'm here talking about how appalling this restaurant is. Firstly, upon entering the restaurant we weren't even acknowledged even though we had a valid booking. The staff completely ignored us until I spoke up. We...moved further into the restaurant and were repeatedly told that we would be seen to, that was for around 15 minutes. We were taken to our table eventually, which was a completely soaked bench and I told her this is completely unacceptable. As a result, we got moved to another table after I told her we weren't walks ins, we had booked a table online. The manager came out and told us that he wasn't aware that I had altered my booking to half an hour later and that basically it was my fault that I didn't do it a day before as opposed to a few hours before. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, a booking system is in place to allow a diner to amend a booking in real time in which ever way they want. He was quite aggressive and unnecessarily rude, I just wanted him to leave us so we could order in peace. After that fiasco, we were ready to try the amazing pepper pot dish we saw online. This was until the lovely waitress informed us this hasn't been on the menu for years. They have told management to align the menus online and in the restaurant but they haven't listened. This is unbelievable, if you don't listen to your staff, what chance do you have prospering as a restaurant?? At this point, we are starving so we order the jerk chicken and plantain skewers and surprise surprise, they have run out of this. This was the last straw, we left, the waitress apologised and understood why we were leaving. I gave this place a chance because of the reviews but it truly is the worst place I have been to on the island. Think twice before booking here.More

I ordered Merlot which was listed by price on the drink menu for 7.50 per glass. When the bill came I was charged 13.00 per glass. I asked my waitress and she said the wine was not on happy hour. Ok, but the menu I...was given, read the price was 7.50 happy hour or not, the menu had a price next to the Merlot for 7.50. I guess you can charge whatever you want at Blakeys and just say the drink was not on happy hour. Shady AFMore

Meal was basic. Pizza was far too spicy. Steak was good. Gets busy on music nights so ring to reserve a table. Didn't stay too late as had young children but looked as if it would be a nice lively bar.

Me and my friends ate here while on a school hockey tour, while expensive for poor schoolboys the location looking over the Atlantic ocean is phenomenal. We didnt wait long for food and I ate the boardwalk burger which has a spot in my heart...for one of the best burgers I've eaten. I highly reccomendMore

We had passed Blakey’s several times in a taxi, but had never the chance to eat there until now. We called earlier in the day to make a booking, and also noticed that there would be live music playing this evening. It was one of...our best evenings in Barbados. Live music was provided by Wesu Wallace who was excellent and kept us entertained from 7pm to 9pm. The table service was brilliant. We were greeted by a host who guided us to our reserved table, and within a few minutes our waitress had taken our drinks order, and drinks had arrived. The main order was placed and within 10 - 15 minutes we were tucking into a Caesar salad, beef burgers, and Spring rolls. All wrapped up nicely with some ice cream for dessert. Brilliant live music, atmosphere, service, location and food. 10 out of 10. Our best evening out to date.More
