The lunchtime menu sees the introduction of pizzas from our woodfire oven sure to be a favourite with our younger customers as well as an array of mouth watering salads. Sunday lunch is still a must at the Lone Star.... Some things never change! Enjoy a rum sour at sunset or a post dinner glass of champagne at our new cocktail lounge.

“Just keeps getting better and better!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

There were nine us on a Niovember Friday eveniing for dinner and we wanted to take no chances so off we wnt to the Lone Star.

It was superb. the caribbean fish pie deserves a special mention as does the faultless friendly and relaxed service.

We chose Chateau Minutey Rose from a very extensive list which complemented the meal perfectly.

My only suggestion to improve woulf be for the Lone Star to resolve their long running dispute with American Express and start taking it again!

“Tired menu lets down wonderful location”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We visit this restaurant 3 or 4 times whenever we visit the Island. The location is right on the beach and its a very firm favourite with the family as the children can swim in the sea barely 30 feet from your table. The menu really hasn't changed much in the last 9 years or so and quality of cooking does sometimes vary from day to day. By and large the food is ok to pretty good but for some dishes the prices are possibly bordering on being over priced. The service is good and the staff are always very attentive and friendly. It will always be one of our favourites especially for those long lunches by the sea where the children are free to get up and go off for a swim and you can just pass away the time gazing at the amazing view.

Our average spend for a family of 5 with just main courses, a couple of rum sours and a bottle of rosé was $600 Barbados (US$300 or £190) .

Well worth a visit but would like to see either a few more daily specials or a change in the menu but we will keep going back.

After lunch there are a couple of local bars on the beach no more than 2 minutes walk which are both great places to watch the sun set (Ramshackles and Ju Ju's).

“Gone downhill”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Had dinner here in a party of 11 family and friends last week. Lone Star is usually one of our favourite places to eat but we were all disappointed with our food. The wine tasted off, the white and then the red - maybe not stored properly? Hope they can up their game before next year as we were disappointed.

“Best meal of the trip so far!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

We ate here Wednesday night and our party of 6 agreed it was the best meal of the holiday so far.

From the moment we arrived the service was spot on, our children were made comfortable and drink orders taken promptly.

Food was excellent and can highly recommend the tempura, crab cakes, seated tuna and curry.

We have found most of the restaurants to be fairly empty at the moment but this place seemed busy which made the atmosphere buzzing. Lots of families there which creates a buzzing atmosphere.

We shall be coming back here again!!!

Only negative was the couple sat next to us turned out not to be Wee Jimmy Krankie and whatever his name is so that A-list feeling was short lived!!!

“Beautiful relaxing spot”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

The locals go here because it is "the" place to go. The restaurant was lovely as was the food (not 5 star cuisine but really nice food) but the reason to go is for the location. Yards from the sea (perhaps 10?) with the waves lapping at the restaurants edge. Our staff that served us were very attentive and the whole experience was just lovely.

Negatives - We had to leave! Positives - Just go with a chilled attitude and the place will blow you away.
