“Perfect beachside location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Visited several times at lunch time for beer but decided to go tonight, the last night of our holiday. We were greeted like long lost freinds and were seated at a table right next to the beach. Adrian the bar manager treated us like long lost freinds, a great guy. The food was superb, Alex the pasta chef produced a great lobster / pasta dish it was so tasty. Wherever you are in Barbados you must vist Il Tempio, you will not be disapointed.

“Fantastic food, great location, very attentive service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Everytime i go in Barbados i cannot miss my visit to Il Tempio, and i was very surprised
to read reviews that are so far from the truth . The lasagna is amazing, presented in a long plate in 3 pieces... to die for. The location is just on the beach, and when you are there on the sunset, you wish to be there for ever. The service is very attentive and friendly.
Looking forward to eat there again!

“Great Location ---Poor Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

The first impression here is that its such a great location. Its truly in a wonderful position, but our experience was the service was very poor.
We dined there on what was a quiet evening--we were one of two tables. So we were very confused why the service should be so bad. The problem seemed to be that our server was not too clued up. On several occasions she came to the table and without waiting for even the slightest pause in our conversation just started talking. Then she thought she would ask us if we wanted another bottle of wine. The technique was to dump roughly a glass full into my already half full glass and at the same time as pouring ask if we would like another bottle--Classy!
While I was at the Rest Room she came to ask my wife what we wanted for desert. Clueless.
The food?--actually pretty good! Didn't I mention it yet?

“Nice location and view but the food was terrible!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

I had dinner there and the lasagna was terrible. It was like eating mush. I thought this would be a good place for Chef Ramsey to do an episode of Kitchen Nightmares. The location and view is very nice but the kitchen needs a new chef.

It is very horrible and desgracefull to use the TripAdvisor web to get a revenge ....Do not help nobody....The reviewer that found our lasagna so horrible paid her bill with a cheque without having money on the account in the bank....After a running behind her to get our money she found our food terrible....I do no think that we need to change our chef that makes happy so many of our customers....while the reviewer need to accept that the bill need to be paid.....
