“Great food”

Great food for lunch. Son had a chicken wrap, he described it as 'the best ever'!
Was quiet when we ate there so not much atmosphere, but staff were friendly

“The Place for a Rum Punch & Fries !!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Stayed at Sapphire Beach Condos in St Lawrence Gap which is a 5/6 star location and at one end of the Condo is situated the beach bar / café of Johnny Cool which is more probably and accurately classified as a one star so its almost one extreme to the other but well worth a visit - Johnny Cool is actually the owners real name !!
Enjoy rum punch's, cocktails or simply a beer and simple but freshly cooked food such as burgers or flying fish at very reasonable prices. Don't expect candles or table cloths but still an enjoyable laid back evening.

“Shady bar on Dover beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed their 2 for 1 mango daquiris on a number of occasions - just yummy. Simple food freshly cooked. Husband loved the flying fish burger ! Nice to just watch the waves rolling in - chill and enjoy - no rush !

“Johnny Cool's beach and blues!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

On our first trip to Barbados my husband and I happened on Johnny's bar only to enjoy the music and a few drinks! Sweet blues rifts might have lured us in, but Johnny's freindliness and the cool vibe, kept us coming back year after year. The newer location on the beach only adds to the overall appeal of a meal, snack or mango daiquiri at Johnny Cools! I even get up to sing with the local bands occasionally!

“Wouldnt bother”

Didn't get the food we ordered, just what the chef appeared to want to cook, service very slow, staff not the most engaging.
