“excellent food ... wow fab location”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

We have just returned from a two week stay in Barbados, for the last few months all we have heard about is the fabulous people and amazing restaurants... we were in a group of about 25 people but my self and partner didn't want to go to this restaurant as a group we wanted the experience to be more of a romantic one...
I suppose we were lucky to get in as always busy (so as they say book early to get a fab table).. we sat on the second level of tables so didn't directly over look the sea, but a fab table..

We knew the costs as they openly say and even have a minimum spend, but we knew that..

We were given then menu and to be really honest nothing really stood out and said pick me... an excellent menu but it didn't grab me.. however we were also given what was called a taster menu which was 7 ,courses including desert / coffee and chocs at the end... we definitely made the right choice, in brief we had scallops / fois gras / king prawn / sword fish / duck / steak and a desert and beautiful chocs...
drinks and wine to be honest were very reasonable, service absolutely exceptional...

in summary fantastic meal and experience, location is to die for !!!

Value for money.... mmmmmmm ... would i go back probably not been there done that but WOW WHAT AN EXPERIENCE...

email me if you want to know more etc..

“Unmissable.”
Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Having read the other positive reviews of this place- can confirm, knock out location/views and brilliantly executed menu with decent service. Best meal I've had anywhere in Barbados in 5 visits to the island!

“An experience”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

It was our seventh time last night. Pretty quiet ( but it was heroes day. )Great as usual, couple of negatives, surly French / Italian drinks server ! What's that about? All staff usually amazing. (As they all were last night apart from him. )Thought dessert menu was poor. Bring on the creme brûlée & chocolate pudding. Love the setting ,and food we had was excellent. Will be back.

“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The food was exquisite and the service extraordinary. It was my birthday and the staff made it truly special. We had to wait a little to get a table overlooking the water but it was well worth it! The drinks are delightful. One of the best mojitos I ever had.

“Special place - fantastic setting, relaxed, great food”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Really nice and worth a special trip. One of the most fantastic restaurant settings. Tables are assigned in order of reserving and the waterfront tables have better views of the sea/waves/eponymous cliff. Food, wine and cocktails were all great. Wide choice of interesting fish/meat dishes and more than one vegetarian option. Big portions. No rushing/table turning. We were in there three hours. Three courses, wine and a cocktail for GBP 125 (B$375) a head. Worth it. Wine list particularly reasonable - wide selection in the B$80/£27 range.
