“Wonderful surprise on the boardwalk!!”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

My wife & I just returned from 8 wonderful days in Barbados. This was our 14th trip to the island in 15 years.. We have sampled just about every place to eat in those 15 years.. Many have closed and a few new ones have opened. Naru was on of the new ones. We noticed it while walking along the new boardwalk. They are smart in putting a menu on the boardwalk side. It was a sunday and they were closed but we called monday and made a reservation.. The service was excellent. The dishes were great.. My wife I shared 3 dishes and I had a 4th. It was sort of like an asian tapas menu. One thing we wanted to try was the short ribs but we didn't see them on the menu. It turns out it was only on the lounge menu. They were kind enough to offer them to us. They were fantastic. In fact, everything we sampled was excellent. While dining on Barbados can be expensive, this was a very reasonable dinner. I'm looking forward to returning next year.. It's worth the visit..

“Just barely ok”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

4rolls and one scallop dish for me and my gal. No booze, bill was just over 125 US. Average food really. Not bad but not great. No value for hard earned money! Service was nice and friendly but in the end felt kinda ripped off.

“A great experience”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Naru is a wonderful eating experience. As other people have said the portions aren't large and you do need to order at least a couple of dishes each. The sushi in particular was very fresh, and is not to be missed. The lobster was wonderful, and like nothing else we had eaten. The seating at the front of the hotel overlooks the boardwalk and beachfront - a very pleasant area to sit. We were staying at the Accra Beach Hotel, so it was a short walk along the boardwalk - although this is very dark late at night probably not advisable if you are on your own! It is not a cheap experience, but should not be missed either!!

“Too small of servings to share as they suggest”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

The food was excellent in every way, but although they tell you the servings are small, they are quite expensive if you want more than one per person to share, the catch of the day was $23.00 us for a piece of fish 2 inch square, definitely too small to share.
