Perfect location to have dinner overlooking the sea, great service from attentive and friendly staff, plus the foods not to shabby either!!! A friend recommended as their best restaurant in the world, and I can see why.

Wife and I want'd romantic meal. We were overwhelmed with quality of service, decor (competed renovation recently), and of course food. This is a great Barbados experience. Right on the beach, we chose open air dining room, though they also have air conditioned room. Renovation is Caribbean cool! We are already planning return for Sunday.

Went for a special occasion whilst in Barbados, they make you feel very special but no over the top, make sure you get a reservation because some times it's fully booked. Right on the sea front and we watched the lights of passing boats whilst listening to the breaking waves (perhaps a lunchtime meal would be even better). It has... More

The light fixtures in this restaurant are stunning, it really has the wow factor. The service was very attentive and I enjoyed my meal although having been asked if I would like my Thai curry spicy (yes please) it wasn't in the slightest. Fab place for a glam night out, will definitely be back.

We were thrilled with the location, the atmosphere and the service! The decor is stunning and the setting wonderful. The food did not disappoint either. For appetizers we chose the lobster Ravioli, the flying fish and the roasted beets. Wonderful! The portions were large enough to actually be eaten as a main. The grilled lobster and the scallops were our... More
