After nearly two weeks we finally found a really excellent restaurant. Food was good and beautifully presented, especially the chicken risotto. We had the prawns with apple to start, light and delicious, my husband had lamb shank which was really tender. Portion size was just right, we have found most to be too big so this was the first time... More

Best meal in a very long time and not just in Barbados! All 4 of us loved our appetizer and our main! Service was fabulous! If you can get the balcony table for 4 upstairs, it's fantastic! Like you're in your own private dining room! A little bit pricier than some, but, not at all unreasonable. Definitely going again before... More

Depends who is managing on the night- sometimes great other times offhand! Nice intimate atmosphere but can also be a little soulless. Great Margueritas though!

The Mews is not in the best area of town and doesn't have a sea front location, but it's relaxed, friendly, unpretentious atmosphere and good food make it an excellent choice for lunch or dinner.

Great food. Attentive service but not pushy. Lovely place for dinner - book a couple of days in advance and ask for a table on the veranda on the 1st floor overlooking the street.

The service here with the owner offering brilliant food recommendations is wonderful. A lovely touch to the restaurant. The drinks menu is extensive and not overly pricey either. Food choices are good and absolutely delicious. We ate as a four at 9pm and there was quite literally two other tables in the restaurant who had left by our mains. With... More
