“Great atmosphere but overpriced for the food quality”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We had an earlier dinner at 5:45 so we could catch the sunset. Totally worth it as we were the only ones out there with a great view over the sea and a gorgeous sunset. The service was above average for Barbados but average for an American restaurant. The food presentation was amazing and the food was good. For $120 without any drinks, we expected higher quality though. Still a great restaurant, just a bit overpriced for what you get.

“exceptional food for special occasions”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

we booked a table well in advance "on the rail" as the restaurant had been recommended by friends.
i have to say the quality of the food, service and the setting overlooking the ocean did not disappoint.
the only small thing was that the Parmesan crusted barracuda had been recommended but they had run out which was surprising as we were there early in the evening. however the scallop dish i chose as an alternative could not be faulted.
it was a bit pricey, but i suppose you pay for what you get. the bill for 4 people came to 800 Barbados dollars.
for a special occasion i certainly would recommend it.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The atmosphere seem quite lovely. However, the waitress was rude and short with us and would not answer questions about the menu and the wine list. She sent the "wine expert" to our table to answer questions - which he could not. He suggested we read the wine description under each bottle and make a decision. We ended up paying for our bottled water and leaving. The management was very sympathetic about our experience, but needless to say we did not return again during our vacation.

“Cheerful, with excellent views, decent food and surprizingly moderate prices”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

This is a large restaurant and bar overlooking the sea.
It's on a little snicket away from the main road, which is nice, and there's a patrolled carpark across this road for the use of patrons. Bearing in mind the restaurant's position, this makes an ideal spot to have a restful lunch before a short drive to the airport at the end of your holiday - with the jolly carpark attendant there's no need to worry about your car being full of luggage.
Staff are very welcoming, and prices are quite low for what is an expensive island. The food is competently prepared and presented, and all-in-all we'd happily return.
There's a nice art gallery attached with some good local artists and photographers exhibiting.
