Visited here for the first time. We arrived right on time and so were shown straight to our table but we were still given the option to order a cocktail. Our table was on the front porch, quite a romantic setting except for the smokers coming outside to have a smoke in front of the hedge separating us from the road, fortunately there were not too many.
The menu is simple and varied and very spicy but delicious. Most portions on Barbados are too large but this was just right.
The service was prompt (if not a little too prompt) and friendly and it was a nice touch when the owner/chef came out to see us at the end of our meal.
Our first, but definitely not our last visit and will recommend to friends who are looking for something different.

This was the best meal we ate on our 2013 trip and when we returned in 2014 we weren't disappointed.

Don't be put off by the location (up a poorly lit dirt track behind some houses). Once you get through the front door, the welcome is warm, the atmosphere relaxed, the staff friendly and attentive.

The food is excellent; on a par with The Cliff but much simpler and in a less grandoise setting.

Thoroughly recommended.

This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, a tad retro, yet still very cool and Barbadian, with a warm glow. Staff are super friendly, the Owners very hospitable. Food was lush, try the curries, or catch of the dat special, you won't be disappointed with the flavours and presentation. Look out for small sign/logo, as it can be missed, Definitely book so you don't miss out.

The atmosphere is romantic and the food is fantastic. We visited twice and both times were great. We would definitely go back if we visit the island again.

This restaurant has really good reviews on here and to be fair we couldn't fault the food. However, with so many amazing restaurants to choose from in Barbados for me this one is not one I would go back to. The overall feel and interior just doesn't have enough atmosphere. It didn't feel special so it's not one of my favourites.
