Description: Dining at the Atlantis Restaurant has become a favourite tradition with scores of locals and visitors to Barbados, especially on Wednesdays and Sundays for our famous buffets. If you are thinking of hosting a function at the Atlantis, this is not a problem as up to 200 persons can be accommodated for. Opened daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner with the exceptions of Sunday nights, you can be rest-assured that the Atlantis Hotel is certainly the ideal place for that special occasion. Whether it is a birthday, wedding, family reunion or business meeting, the Atlantis Hotel & Restaurant will prove itself to be the place to be while you are here in Barbados. Do note that reservations are recommended, especially on Wednesdays and Sundays for our famous buffets.

Ate at the lunch buffet on Wednesday, October 30 and, as mentioned earlier, had to eat indoors due to a private event taking place on the terrace. When we arrived, the hostess said she was sure we were informed of the private event; however, a "Javon" had taken our reservation the night before and had failed to mention the private event; had we been informed, we might have re-considered because the view is most of the attraction. In addition, we didn't feel the food was worth the money. The chicken curry was full of bones, and the rest of the food was just average. We have eaten at the Atlantis lunch buffet twice previously and the food is OK, but not the main draw for us. If you can get a rail seat on the terrace, it is well worth going once - the view of the East Coast is breathtaking.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on our wonderful restaurant and I am very sorry you felt disappointed following your visit to the Atlantis Restaurant. However, similar to the review posted by [travelling_jojo], I cannot help but feel that you have overstated your dissatisfaction due to us not offering seating on the outside deck on Wednesday October 30th, 2013.

It is not our policy to divulge information such as the hosting private events to the general public, unless it in some way impinges on our ability and capacity to provide our usual services to our guests. The Atlantis Restaurant can accommodate up to 200 guests at any one time. There is an inside dining room and an outside deck. From time to time, we reserve our right to use the inside dining room only for a variety of reasons which vary from inclement weather, large group reservations or special events. We did our normal buffet lunch service from 12pm to 3:30pm that day and it was no different from any other Wednesday Buffet at the Atlantis.

We have no less than nine tables on the inside by the window with the exact same view as the six tables by the railing on the outside. After consultation with staff on duty that day, it was revealed that you did indeed have a table by the window inside. The question must now be asked, did you visit the restaurant for our Bajan Lunch Buffet or did you visit just for a specific table outside? We like to think that our guests visit us for our food primarily, with the stunning view of the East Coast being an added bonus.

Here at the Atlantis we offer a sumptuous Wednesday Buffet for just $35 USD per adult or $20 USD per child aged 5-12 and this provides very good value for money considering the wide variety of food on offer. Sample menus can be seen here [http://www.atlantishotelbarbados.com/atlantis-buffets/] The Chicken Curry on that day was a Caribbean-styled Chicken Curry made with legs, thighs, ribs and wings as opposed to only breast meat. This is the reason why there were bones in the Chicken Curry.

As I stated in a previous review, I will state again, the only complaint we got that day was related to lunch being served inside rather than outside. Moreover, it is clear to anyone reading your review that you have rated us overall with two stars simply because you were unable to sit at a specific table on the outside. That in our opinion is truly unfortunate. Perhaps this is why you rated us five stars for our service… and for this, we thank you. Our team works extremely hard to ensure 100% guest satisfaction.

In closing, thank you for taking the time to review your dining experience with us and perhaps you will return in the not too distant future for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Best Regards

Went for Sunday lunch without a reservation and although the restaurant was extremely busy the lovely lady on the front desk went out of her way to give us a table overlooking the sea when we pleaded (just a little). The Bajan's are so well mannered and if you treat them with the respect they deserve they will always do their very best for you. Food (buffet) delicious and plentiful, location great although a little tricky to find but definitely worth going. An authentic Bajan hotel-believed to be the oldest on the island.

Bathsheba is a wonderful totally natural area of the East coast of Barbados, and the Atlantis is a Hotel and Restaurant that is a must to visit if in Barbados. Food is well cooked, a good well priced wine list to go with it led to a memorable 2 hour lunch, all with stunning views of the rugged East Coast Atlantic shoreline.
The service is excellent, and would recommend a table overlooking the sea. Top value, excellent food and service, and views you will remember for ever, make this one of the must visit locations anywhere.
We loved it so much we named a property after it!

Booked ahead as the restaurant is popular .Given a wonderful table over looking the wild Atlantic - this is the east coast of Barbados and is not to be missed .
Geevon and the delightful waiting staff took care of us so well .The Mahi Mahi catch of the day was fabulous, fresh, lightly cooked and utterly delicious .The standard of service was excellent and food fairly priced Menu offered a decent selection .
We were encouraged to look around the hotel which has recently opened after a complete overhaul..The decor gave a relaxed and comfortable feel to the place.All was light,bright and spotless .
We hope to return again
