Followed the signs to this restaurant and bar and was very glad I did. The first time I went in the middle of the day out of tourist season and it was very quiet but the location - just above breaking waves on the south coast - was incredible. The second time was a Thursday night. The crowd was very laid back and the staff very friendly and cool. The third time I went on a Sunday night when there was live music and again the atmosphere was great. There were a lot of people, though, and it was hard for the bartenders and staff to keep up. The crowd was a good mix of young couples, families, and groups of friends. The cartoons playing on the projection screen helped to entertain the kids while also making the atmosphere more fun. I haven't eaten here but would recommend a visit (or two or three) in the evening for the ambience.

This is the place to be, if you want to be away from the crowds! No posh fancy restaurant, just a cool place to hang. Don't expect sun chairs or anything like that, just a very relaxed atmosphere. When I come back to Barbados, south coast and surfer's bay will be a given!!

Very cool little beach bar. Fun for kids and adults alike. Drinks were yummy, food was decent. Definitely worth the trip...we really dug the vibe. Live music on Thursday night.

we went with our surfing instructor and his family - what a local gem. The food was awesome and the place was buzzing. it caters for familieas as well as water sports enthusiates. The food was extrenmely good . Well worth the drive - it is located near Silver sands beach - make a reservation otherwise you might be able to experience the culinery delights. Everything was so fresh and tasteful - a real gem -

ZR we got from Oistens didn't know the bar so dropped us in the middle of no where! Fortunately friendly locals directed us - unfortunately we were roughly 2 miles away!

Finally arrived after a hot walk, looking forward to a relaxing evening, a few chilled Banks & a bite to eat, but it was not to be as we arrived in the middle if a children's birthday party! Not a fault of the bar, but not conducive to our expectations!

Only stayed for a couple of drinks due to the average age of customers being under 3! but it was happy hour so 2 beers & a Sprite 10BBD = bonus! :-))

Great place & would definitely visit again, hopefully next time without the influx of the little people! ;-))
