Champers had fantastic food and the chef should be commended. And it has a great ocean view and location. But can good food outweigh intentionally awful service? How about mixed drinks that ostensibly have a cheaper substitute than was asked for?

Service starts with the reception, goes throughout dinner, and ends when you one finally leaves. The prices at this restaurant are very high and therefore service should be commensurate with the high price. At the end of the day, great food and views do not make up for awful service.

Note that the restaurant also pre-charges for service, but don't tell you on the actual final bill, leaving those who are not careful to overpay.

If you still decide to frequent the restaurant, note that it is on an alley way which can be easy to miss. The alley way starts off the main road at the "Tiki Bar" which is easy to find. Beware broken sidewalks, etc.

We were walking on the beach when we saw this beautiful restaurant just by the sea so we decided to go snd check it out. It's a bit in a "hidden" place so you won't notice it by walking on the main street. The staff was very welcoming when we entered and immidietly took us to the table "number 61" which was prpbably the best table in the whole place, with an incredible ocean view, a very romantic table for two. The service was great and fast and the food was excellent. Would definitely go there again!!

We took a friend of ours here for lunch as we always come here, and I don't know what has happened to the staff, they were so slow. We ordered pre luncheon drinks and didn't get them until we were seated at the table.

We sent two of the cocktails back as they were not correct.

We waited an age for the first course, and when they eventually arrived one of them was wrong. no apologies from the staff.

The wine waiter couldn't be bothered to serve us.

It will be a long time before we go back!

A great venue and a lovely beach setting. We were particularly lucky with the table as it overlooked the water. Always a reliable fun venue, and still a top restaurant in Barbados.

We really enjoyed our recent visit to this place. Some really friendly people greet you at the reception and take you to your table. We were seated on the table right by the sea, and could see the waves break on nearby rocks. The food and service was just great. I was surprised that they had a separate vegetarian menu which had a wide ranging choice.
A must visit place if you are in Barbados.
