“Very poor service, mediocre food, uncompetitive prices”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Too bad that we ate hear before meeting locals who advised us against it. Up arrrival, we were told to sit in the lobbby to await our table, with no apology for it not being ready in time for our reservation. We had a reservation for 8 PM. We were served our main course at almost 10 PM, with no apologies for having been seated late, and an hour wait between one small appetizer and the mains. We should have stuck to simple pasta; fish was overcooked. Prices were higher than at restaurants with better food, as you are apparently paying a lot for the the view of the water.

“Average food expensive prices”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Food was just ok. Very welcoming but very expensive for what it was. There are better places to eat for the same price and cheaper food of the same quality elsewhere.

“Set Menu - Excellent food and value!!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the meals we had a Bellini's on our recent trip to Barbados. We decided to go for the set menu for $59 which had 4 choices for each course, plus a fee glass of rum punch! The food was very good, the staff very helpful and the setting overlooking the bay was very pleasant.

We had eaten in Bellini's on our previous visit to the Island and were glad that we went back again as the quality of the service and food had improved signifcantly.

“Worth a visit; good meal, lovely night”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We avoided this restaurant on the first week of our visit but a friend suggested we try this restaurant out...happy we did so. I had a spinach stuffed chicken and my husband had the catch of the day. Both meals were excellent and the presentation lovely. My husband had been craving a Bloody Mary and claimed that this one was the best he had ever had! Get there early enough for an Oceanside table to add to a great night.

“Lovely meal ”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Couldn't decide between here & chez max next door but decided on here as we really fancied italian & it was cheaper.
Lovely table right overlooking the beach/harbour.
Staff were fine & efficient.
Partner had 2 x local beer & I just opted for an OJ.
For starters we shared garlic bread & bruschetta which were both very tasty.
Partner had margarita pizza which was nice & I had chicken breast with spinach in a white wine sauce which was delicious!!! Best thing I've had here yet.
Would have liked a little more veg/potato but tastewise I couldn't fault it.
No desserts as we were full & nothing was jumping out at me.
Bill was $B135.
I really liked it.
